I had a bit of a weird idea… But hey, let’s see if you guys are into it:
As freelancers, we rarely get an Xmas party, and even when we do, it tends to be tagged onto client celebrations and it’s not really something where we are with other people doing what we do… Whilst I don’t miss the poisoned chalice of organising the Xmas party (god I HATED it!!) I do miss the buzz and the fun and the “end of year-ness” it brings.
So here is my crazy idea:
An online Xmas party on Zoom. We do some party games, some chat, wear horrible xmas jumpers (actually mine is ace and has Star Wars stuff on it…), ruminate on the year which has been, do some silly awards.
So what suits people? Lunchtimes? Evenings?
I was thinking Fri 13th in the evening and that way work is out the way for the week, we can crack open the gin (or tipple of your choice!), and it’s not too close to the craziness of Xmas itself? But that is Xmas party central so maybe it clashes with lots of stuff?
