Happy Holidays from EXAIR!

It’s currently… the most wonderful time of the year.

Though 2020 has undoubtedly been a challenging year, it’s times like the holiday season that remind us why we persevere. Gifts, random acts of kindness, cherishing loved ones… the season brings a unmistakable air of hope and good will towards each other. Though this holiday season we may not be able to celebrate it the way we have in past years, we continue to make the best of our individual situations and remain grateful for the chance to spread cheer and put a smile on someone’s face.

The holidays are a joyous time here at EXAIR, in large part because the values of this season coincide seamlessly with EXAIR’s. Giving back, kindness, and gratitude… are just a few of the things we love to celebrate here at EXAIR. So as much as we know you love hearing about quality manufacturing solutions, we thought we’d give our readers a bit of what is bringing us that holiday cheer this season.

After much deliberation, countless hours of focus groups, and spirited debates laden with power point presentations and hired attorneys… we present a playlist of the tunes that our making us smile today. And if your favorite didn’t make the list, leave us a comment and tell us what songs are filling your heart this holiday.

The Many Faces of Santa Clause

I am fascinated by the various Christmas traditions and faces of Santa Clause throughout the world.   My favorite Santa version  is known as Ded Moroz from Siberia. He looks a bit intimidating but that may be an incentive as to whether or not you choose to be good or bad.

In Yugoslavia, they kind of roll  what we celebrate as Halloween, Mother’s Day and Christmas gift giving all in one. On the second Sunday before Christmas, the children creep in and tie their mother’s feet to a chair and shout, “Mother’s Day, Mother’s Day, what will you pay to get away?” She then gives them presents. Children play the same trick on their father the week after.

The children celebrating Christmas in China decorate trees with colorful ornaments. These ornaments are made from paper in the shapes of flowers, chains and lanterns. They also hang muslin stockings hoping that “Christmas Old Man” will fill them with gifts and treats. Santa Claus is called Dun Che Lao Ren which means “Christmas Old Man.”.

In China they call this season the Spring Festival and celebrate with many festivities that include delicious meals and pay respects to their ancestors. The children are the main focus of these celebrations, they receive new clothes and toys, eat delectable food and watch firework displays.

Catered lunch of Christmas past.

The one thing that is common among all traditions is…Food.  And I’m here to tell you there is tons of food around the office during the holiday season and the company caters in a lunch.

In the past, after all the binging is over, we have had diet competitions. I’ve never been successful with that and just carry the extra weight for the remainder of the year. Yep, each year I add another pound. I’ve been with EXAIR for 20 years and have put on 20 pounds.

During this holiday season, more than ever, our thoughts turn gratefully to those who have made our success possible. Thank you and may peace, prosperity, & happiness be yours throughout the holidays and new year.
