The 1st Friday of December will always be a happy day for P&G employees that are based in the Philippines. This past Friday was truly exciting seeing all those gifts from the company that I work for. Christmas is a day that we celebrate as our Lord Jesus Christ was born on that day, and oftentimes we also organize intimate parties with families and exchange gifts.
To be honest, for the past few years that I have received P&G Christmas baskets, I haven’t really enjoyed it much. I’ve been far away from my loved ones such that Christmas day has just been a normal day for me. This year, however, is different!
My mom and my fiance will be spending Christmas & New Year with me! So as soon as I got my share of P&G Christmas Basket, I was totally ecstatic! It’s funny too to see my mom’s reaction! It felt like we won a grocery getaway hahaha! I think when you’re blessed with so many things, receiving a basket from a great company, this time of year, is truly an added bonus.
We have the usual ham. Coincidentally, I had my share of CDO’s Holiday Ham from an event I recently attended. It was truly delicious so I was glad it was picked as one of two ham giveaways 😀 And I honestly do not mind getting ham for the holiday season since it’s really one of those foods that is so delicious and easy to prepare. And like I wrote a few days back, there’s really so much you can do with ham!
And of course, how could P&G products ever be absent from their very own Christmas basket giveaway, that certainly will never ever happen. And when you scroll down at all those P&G products, you will truly just be blown away at just how much they give us during the holiday season. Multiply what I get by all our employees here in the Philippines, and you can just imagine how much they are giving away! It’s really a lot!
They also had groceries for our Noche Buena (I noticed several Kraft products in the basket too). Reminds me to start whipping up miracles through the miracle machine. It truly is a great variety of products that they have given. You can make some spaghetti, a variety of beverages including coffee, orange juice, hot chocolate, and even champagne!
They didn’t stop at just that, we were also sent an email with recipes for us to use. Oh so complete! Groceries, some ham and recipes for our Christmas meal!
This is most probably my last P&G Christmas Basket as I get ready for the next chapter of my life. And I’ve never truly enjoyed the P&G Christmas Basket like I have this year. There really is something to be said about having a great and wonderful life, such that when you receive something like this, you feel truly lucky to even have received it at all…
And so, it was a happy day! 😀
Thanks P&G for giving thought to your employees, and a Happy Holidays to everyone!
