The holiday season means something different for each of us. For some it’s a time for gathering; for some it’s a time for traveling. Some of us will celebrate by wrapping gifts, while others will find satisfaction in getting organized and wrapping up the loose ends of another year. Some will worship, some will sing, and some will revel in the simple splendor of silence.
We asked some of our Murad employees to share what the holiday season means to them. Here’s what they said:
Director, National Retail Education
“There seems to be a bit more magic in the air. I love the glittering lights and the music. I love that families and friends get together to celebrate their connection to one another. It’s also a time to remember others – for me this is the time of year I try to focus on giving back. I volunteer more, donating my time and items that are needed to causes that are important to me. I reflect on what I have, what I can share and what I can give to those who have less than I do.”
Kristen G. Robinson
Director, New Product Development
“The holiday season is a time to remember, share and enjoy family traditions; to value, appreciate and honor the moments of your past and present that fulfill and enrich your life. The holidays are about embracing your faith and heritage while creating new traditions and making memories of your very own. Every holiday season, I look forward to filling my house with the sounds, smells, tastes, and activities that I loved from my childhood Christmases: listening to my grandmother’s favorite Christmas song (Silver Bells), watching holiday favorites on TV (Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, It’s a Wonderful Life and Miracle on 34th Street), and preparing specialties of my heritage (Holupki and Pierogi) to share with friends and family.”
Human Resources Generalist
“The holiday season means to me: spending quality time cuddling up with a warm blanket and my handsome sons, festive decorations, and lots of cooking. When I think of the holiday season, I think of warm, spicy tamales and family. Wishing everyone a season full of love.”
No matter what the season means to you, we hope that this beautiful and rewarding time brings you joy and inspires you to live well in 2016.
