Every year the Hilton does a Wrap Party for their most loyal clients. About a month before Christmas, clients are invited to bring all of their presents to the Hilton to be wrapped, professional, by us. They come have a fancy dinner, socialize, dance with the Wii, and stay overnight. It's a pretty sweet deal.
For us, the employees, it's a fairly rough, but entertaining night. We work a normal shift, and then spend the rest of the night wrapping and bowing gifts. We honestly worked until like 1am. The fun part is we get to stay the night as well, and invite a significant other. So Derek and I have a pretty good time eating, drinking, wrapping, and dancing with all of my wonderful co-workers.
I also volunteered to take all the photos for the event.....
Oh, and the theme was Polar Express! How fun!
