Happy holidays and Merry Christmas to everyone from the Excel team! Everyone spends the holidays in their own unique way, so we wanted to share some of the holiday traditions and favorite activities of our team members.
Excel Marketing Coordinator Nelly Marquez’s favorite Christmas activity is ice skating. She says when she is gliding around the rink, nostalgia of rollerblading with her friends as a child fills her with joy. Nelly says her Christmas wouldn’t be complete without her mother’s homemade tamales.
Eden, one of our interns, has her family come down from northern California to visit for Christmas. Together they enjoy a special Christmas lunch/dinner. Eden’s favorite dish out of all the food is the sweet potatoes with marshmallows — yum!
Speaking of food, one of our Sales Associates, Austin Prince, has a unique Christmas tradition. He and his family enjoy Chinese food at the same Shanghai Pine Gardens every year for the holidays. Since it’s in Newport Beach by Balboa island, his family then gets to enjoy the spectacular lights around the harbor and spend quality time together. The Balboa Island Christmas lights are a dazzling spectacle to enjoy. The houses and boats are all strung up in colorful lights and decorations for the holidays. The Harbor holds an annual Holiday Boat Parade where the boat owners display their boats filled with lights and decorations for people to enjoy.
Thanks for letting us share some of our fun holiday activities this year. Whatever your holiday traditions may be, we at Excel hope you have a happy holiday and a merry Christmas.
