Every year we throw two “major” parties. The main one is around Catholic Christmas (Dec 25): that is about the quietest time of the year for us, as most our clients enjoy the time with their families, so there are no “releases” or other potential disruptions… Usually, we rent a restaurant or a club, and there is never shortage of all sorts of fun. During these New Year parties, we run (among other things) a lottery, where everyone gets a prise… And, by tradition, two main lots are 40″+ TV sets; it’s possible to win, say, a notebook, a tablet, or a good mobile handset, too. This is also when we award the winners of our annual 4k Demo and Magento Extension contests.
The second “major” party is held during summer, and it’s no slouch either. For instance, in 2018 we rented a two-deck ship (complete with live music and other entertainments), while in 2019 we had a blast at a suburb club on a lake shore — riding quads, shooting bows, playing paintball and various games, and generally having a great time. As to these two annual parties, everyone can bring his/her significant other with them! Speaking of parties, we also have Pizza Parties in our office every now and then — say, to celebrate a couple of smooth releases.
