Christmas in July
A few weeks ago, we as a company decided to put together a pool to guess when we would receive our first holiday order. (It didn't involve money, just baked goods.) As you may or may not know, November and early December are bar-none our busiest times of the year. A few of us who have been here for at least one holiday season are already warning the newbies like grizzled 1840s prospectors warning young bucks coming from the east to make their fortune. Consarnit, it's not that easy!
Anyhow, congrats to production artist Nina, who picked July 18th. We received our first holiday order on Friday.
The 20th of July.
A little over five months before Christmas.
Wow, we've heard of planning ahead, but this takes the cake. We give a hearty "huzzah" to the good people who put in the order.
