We love the holidays at Hall and Company. It’s a time when we celebrate and appreciate all of the special people in our lives. We go all out here at our Irvine CPA firm’s office. Brad and his wife Janice are like two elves that come in and transform our office into a merry atmosphere. If you walk through our suite, you will find decorations and a Christmas tree, and several people have decorated their desks with holiday items as well. You could say that the Christmas spirit is contagious here.
Perhaps the nicest touch is the Yule log that we play on our flat screen TV. Sure we are here to work, but we enjoy that nice cozy feeling we get when we pour our morning cup of coffee right next to our “fireplace.” We likely will never see a white Christmas at our offices, but this is pretty close.
We also want to acknowledge our clients that have appreciated and celebrated our efforts. We had a nice lunch this week thanks to our payroll processor, ADP. We’ve also had an excellent selection of sweets, as our well-traveled team has brought back treats from places like Alaska and Copenhagen. Oh, you better believe it; accountants have a sweet tooth!
Perhaps our biggest, and most special event was our annual Hall and Company luncheon. Our team stepped away from the office and enjoyed a delicious meal from Cucina Enoteca at the nearby Irvine Spectrum. It’s so wonderful to spend time with our Hall and Company family outside of the office. It’s refreshing to see a team that works so hard, laugh and smile, and enjoys each other’s company. The raffle sure got everybody’s blood flowing. In the end, we raised a glass and toasted our accomplishments and our commitment to our expertise, performance, and passion in 2018.
Probably the best thing about the Christmas season is giving back. We are fortunate enough to be involved with various organizations, in which we can lend a helping hand. Brad took part in the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade bringing groups, family, and friends onto his boat, Vista. The Newport Beach Boat Parade is always a special event and something many of us look forward to each year.
Lastly, we are thankful for all of our clients, vendors, and partners. We hope that you enjoy your holiday with your family and friends, and we wish you a Merry Christmas, and a prosperous and happy new year.
