The Burns Sheehan Christmas Party: A Tale Told In GIFs

 

 

 

 

 

 

As one of the office newbies, I thought I would take it upon myself to recount the Burns Sheehan Office Christmas Party. 

 


 

Here at Burns Sheehan, we like to think out-of-the-box and when we commit to something we go way beyond 100%. 

 

So whereas some companies may just pull together something fairly straightforward and unoriginal for their Office Christmas Party…

We think: How about starting the party with an Epic London-wide Scavenger Hunt ?

From your first day at Burns Sheehan it’s clear that this event is a seriously big deal. Telling you about the Christmas Party is even part of your induction, and anticipation builds straight away.

Then, roughly two weeks before the big day, you deliberate with the other new people on what to wear.

Finally, it’s the day before and it’s hard to focus on work because you are so darn excited!

The next day everything feels strangely normal…until it hits 12pm.

You discretely watch your colleague open the secret santa gift you bought for her. She doesn’t seem too impressed.

(only joking, you’re the best secret santa ever) 

 

 

 


And then Baz (aka Jon Sheehan) tells you about your team’s mission.

It turns out pirates are involved, which put everyone on edge.

But it turns out the pirates are more like this.

You run around London, trying to decipher the clues to get to the mysterious locations in time…

…and get a lot of prolonged, confused stares from tourists and Londoners alike.

You sprint to the final location, thinking you might just be the first to make it!

But another team got there first.

After carefully checking the scores, they announce the winning team.

But it isn’t yours, so clearly they’ve made a mistake with the numbers.

Fortunately, there’s no time to squabble because it’s time for food! (And drink)

And then you dance. A lot.

Suddenly, you realize its 2:30am and you have to go to work tomorrow!

You wake up and wish you hadn’t gone to bed quite so late. Or had that last red bull and vodka.

But it’s fine, because when you get to the office you realize everyone is in the same boat!
