We asked the Z-team to share their plans for New Year’s Eve.
**Here’s what some of them had to say:
Dan Licht; Principal, Creative; NYC: 4 Adults! 1 Kid! 1 Baby! Roasted Duck! Wine! Good Times!
Diego Ceballos; Project Manager; Bogotá:We have a big project and at 11:59, at the end of every month, we make a change. So I will be working.
Felipe Torres; IA Team; Bogotá: I’m gonna run around my block with yellow underwear outside my pants for good luck. Not everyone does it… it’s an old tradition. Usually people run with travel bags too, the tradition says that if you do, you will travel a lot next year. Sounds crazy but people do it..
Juan Diego Rodrigues; UI Developer; Bogotá: I will go to NY!!!
Fernando Martinez; Online Marketing Manager; Bogotá: I will go to the “finca” with my family, eat twelve grapes, put lentils in my pockets, run with bags around the house, and drink “aguardiente”
Nicolas Nieto; Project Manager; Chicago: I will host a party for a bunch of Colombians. My brother-in-law, flying up from Houston, will bring brisket and BBQ. My Family from Michigan will bring mashed potatoes and crab! My parents and sister will bring tamales all the way from Bogotá, and we will receive them will some good old cooked stuff in Chicago!
Russ Ward; Practice Director Intelligence Bureau; Sun Prairie, WI: In celebrating New Year’s in years gone by we have been lucky enough to be in different countries for the occasion. It is fun to see how other cultures ring in the new year keeping in mind the not all cultures have the same type of celebration of even the same date. Chinese New Year is a great experience especially in Hong Kong and Singapore. Apart from our birthday, New Year’s is another reminder of the how the years just slide by.
So here comes another one – with new things that will challenge us in 2011.
From all of us here at Zemoga – wishing you health and wealth and happiness in the coming year!
