Give the Gift of Poise! Regala Poise!
It’s that time of year again – the holidays. People often have mixed feelings about this time of year, not knowing whether it is fun and restful, a needed winter break in routine, or if it creates more stress than it’s worth. Personally, I love the holiday season. I always have. It was always a joyful time in my family. We had Santa Clause and a tree, family meals with all the cousins to run around with, school holiday shows with singing and dancing and skits, fancy clothes to wear to the Christmas Eve choir performance at church, and my favourite part of all – choosing and wrapping presents to put under the tree. It was so exciting! You could feel the heightened expectations and energy in the air. The colder temperatures didn’t seem to matter. There was usually at least a little snow, enough to make a snowman and have a snowball fight. The shorter days were made brighter by all of the lights in the shops, in the streets, and at home, so the fact that it was dark by 4pm wasn’t depressing.
Almost a year ago exactly (the 18th of December 2015), Poise celebrated our inauguration party. It was an extra-special holiday season for us. This year, we are happy to be a young business that has survived its first year and looks forward to an even better second year in 2017.
With that said, I’d now like to do some absolutely shameless business promotion! If you don’t know what to give as a gift this year, especially to that one person who seems to already have everything, don’t give them a “thing!” Give them the gift of an experience, a moment of fun and/or relaxation, something that they can do just for themselves that doesn’t require a place to keep it and doesn’t have special washing instructions! Yes, that’s right, give them a gift card for one of our classes!! You can decide how many classes per week and for how long – one or two classes, a month, a whole trimester.
Okay, that’s all. Shameless promotion finished. We truly wish you a very happy holiday season. I hope you relax, enjoy the magic in the air at this time of year, and are surrounded by your favourite people in the world.
