Traditions for the Holidays
Today is the last full day for Frame USA Employees before the New Year. Frame USA Employees reflect on their favorite traditions during the holidays. Here is what a few of our hardworking employee have to say:
“On Christmas Eve, my middle daughter Emily and I, take our convertible car with our dog cookie. No matter how cold it is we put the top down and drive through the neighborhoods for an hour or so. We stop at Starbucks to stay warm and stop to get our dog a treat or Christmas present. We wear our Christmas hats and the entire drive we wave at everyone passing by and tell them Merry Christmas! We always drive through the Walmart (which is always busy with people) and make sure to tell them all best wishes to all the people a little too stressed out. It is without a doubt one of my favorite days and things to do in the whole world!”
-Daniel P. Regenold, CEO Frame USA, Inc.
“My favorite tradition is spending quality time with all of my family!”
-Kelly Ackerman, Marketing Director
“We open presents”
-Brandon Swinehart, In-House Sales Representative
“Every year we go up to my wife’s Aunt’s house in New Philadelphia Ohio and all the family comes over and the kids all get presents and we watch them open those, then we eat, and then we play bingo and there are small prize bags filled with just little stuff that you can get at Walgreens (last year I got Cocoa butter in mine). It’s fun. And we usually watch “A Christmas Story” while we’re there… We also use mini marshmallows for the bingo chips and we throw a lot of them at each other.”
-Kelley Kombrinck, Customer Service Representative
“I am the youngest of four and even though I’m 22 I am still always one of the first people awake on Christmas morning. It is the only day that I’m perfectly okay with getting up early and no matter how old I get I think this will be my role in my family!”
-Brooke Skyllingstad, SEO Coordinator
“I will stay up late and sleep the entire day”
-Andy Scarth, Art Director
“We spend the day with my husband’s family. He is the youngest of seven children. His mother is 82 and still very much involved. Dozens and dozens of people come to our gathering with potluck dishes, and four generations of Hoctors gather under one roof for the day. It is always a very special day.”
-Leslie J. Hoctor, Buyer/Inventory Manager
“In our family we have the 45 minute rule for sitting and eating Holiday dinners, no one is allowed to leave the table until 45minutes has past. Reason is we realized that we would be cooking all day, and it would only take our boy’s 15 minutes at most to eat. They are of course grown now. But we still ask them to follow this rule.”
-Jill Gugel, Administrative Assistant
“We make santa cookies using my great grandma’s butter cookie recipe, and hand decorate them every year.”
-Shannon Powell, Retail Associate
