X-mas Joy at the XWiki Iasi Office

Dec 14 2012

It's that time of the year when we all get together, full of joy, energy and hope! People are willing to become kinder and express more easily their gratitude, feeling the need of bonding with one another.

IT IS CHRISTMAS! And the XWikiers just love X-mas!

At the XWiki Iasi Office, we already got into the Christmas mood since last week, starting with a mind-wrapping movie evening and ending with the traditional XWiki Dinner! The Christmas spirit brought the whole Romanian team together: we were happy to welcome to Iasi our two colleagues that work remotely: Alex and Raluca. Their arrival was a pleasant surprise which could only be appreciated by us.

Between an interesting Roadmap Meeting that ended with a couple of directions for 2013 and a Bug Fixing Day, we also enjoyed several team activities and outings: hot drinks, shopping for Christmas presents and a skating session.

Next days, you could hear carols coming out of our office. Do not worry, we did not sing emoticon_smile, but listened to them while decorating the X-mas tree! And, of course, as we all behaved exemplary this year, Saint Nicholas generously enriched our kitchen and stockings with fruits, sweets, bubbles, twigs and other unexpected gifts! In the evening the whole house was full of small lights and a very warm and friendly atmosphere.

We ended the week with the same enthusiasm that we started it. We exchanged gifts and wishes, each one of us being Secret Santa for a day. Our joy was completed by the delicious homemade cake for Raluca's birthday and by a great dinner in the evening. As for the dancing session at the end, it was the cherry on the cake! 

It was indeed a wonderful happy week! Check out what happened at XWiki Paris Office and enjoy some of the photos on our Facebook page!
