A real estate firm in Baltimore surprised its employees by handing out a total of $10 million in bonuses as a tribute to the holiday and celebration for achieving a company-wide goal it set in 2005. The 198 employees received checks ranging from $100 to $270,000 based on longevity with the firm, with an average gift of $50,000! I’m sure it made for quite a memorable holiday.

Even if your year-end bonus was slightly smaller this year, I hope that you have a holiday filled with the same amount of joy that these employees must have felt. As the Grinch reminds us, Christmas doesn’t come from a store. Today, celebrate all the good in your world that doesn’t have a price tag.

Happy Christmas!

Thanks, Emily!
