It may seem strange, especially when put in contrast with the fact that I had to fight tooth and nail to get some days off work for Christmas, but I’ve always kind of enjoyed working at Christmas. The hotel during Christmas is always quiet, and the people who stay there are always so nice, and sometimes they even give me stuff. Every year at my current hotel we have a professional Santa stay with us during Christmas. I have gotten to know them quite well, and they always brighten my day. I love the hotel when the lobby is cozy, the fire is on, and the Christmas tree is lit. Everyone who comes in is happy, everyone smiles at me when I greet them. It is idealistic in the best way.
