We are still in November, but honestly who cares if we start festivities a little early? We’ve got so much holiday cheer that we started cranking up some festive music and drinking hot chocolate already. (Holiday calories do not count).
We want to share our enthusiasm with you guys — Got a roommate? Or a GEC friend? Email us to participate in one of our holiday-themed games ❤️

Celebrate the season,
