Be your own Santa
Have you ever bought yourself a gift at Christmas time? Some people do every year; others have never even thought of it. Appreciating yourself once a year is not a bad idea. We asked a few of our colleagues about being their own Santa, and as a fun way to end this year, here are their answers.
