We had our end-of-year holiday party today and it was so much fun to come together, look back at the year’s highlights (like launching an LMS), exchange gifts, and tear each other apart on the foosball table.
Hmm that last one doesn’t sound very merry, does it?
What can I say—the competition in our annual foosball tournament is fierce.
We have a bracket for everyone to fill out and live commentary by “sports announcers” aka whoever feels the most opinionated about foosball that day.
It’s always fun to see what my coworkers come up with for their team names. This year we went with foosball + Christmas puns.

Presents Under the Tree
As part of the holiday party, we had a White Elephant Gift Exchange. If you’ve ever participated in a random gift exchange, you know that there are always some super weird items. This year, someone got a bowling ball! The worst gift was probably the toilet brush.
Not all the gifts were crazy though. We all got sweet new eLearning Brothers swag to rock, including hoodies and these cool guitar laptop stickers from StickerMule. These vinyl stickers are durable and weatherproof, so they'll last no matter where you stick them. Shipping was fast and you can get them made in any shape you want. We're pretty excited to see where these little guitars end up!
(Note that our head of marketing is a rebel and put a laptop sticker on his phone. Always thinking outside the box, that one!)
And of course, no holiday party is complete without desserts. We ate a lot of desserts.
All in all, it was a great way to close out the year.
