i got a $50.00 gift card to Meijer, which buys 10% of the beer my company ships. Considering I only make $8 an hour, this will definitely go a long way.

Every year we get two weeks paid vacation at Christmas time (plus our regular vacation plus two weeks off in the summer). That's just about the best thing they could give me. I love my job and my employer.

I haven't gotten anything, and I know I won't.

I suspect my meth-addled coworker did.

I am off work until the 3rd of January, but that's campus policy.

A bottle of wine.

Relatively good wine, though.

And, as usual, they had an office raffle and I didn't win anything.

You minx!!!

My office was treated to a very nice dinner Saturday (with our spouses). If we get a bonus, it will come to us Wednesday afternoon at our annual Christmas luncheon. As to amount, I have no idea...this is only my 2nd Christmas there & I don't know how consistent my boss is. (Last year's was nice, even if they did take taxes out of it.)

A paper bag filled with "Exam Treats" (candy and junk food, pretty good actually). I'm not in a salary paid job yet (I'm a full time student), but my boss does give me 4 straight weeks of vacation - 2 in a row for a family thing we do every summer, one for school's spring break, and one for my family/sibs spring break.

i got a $20 bonus from work (concidering i make minumum wage and only work a couple times a week that's pretty good) and so far 6 friends have given me $20 HMV gift certificates which is better then last year when everyone gave me a calender.

my hockey team gave our coaches pink purses as a gag gift (they're guys btw) that was rather funny.
