From our family to yours, we would like to wish you the merriest of Christmases. At Balsam Hill, it is the time we look forward to the most out of the entire year. To spread some heartwarming cheer on this very special day, our employees were asked to describe what Christmas is to them, as Christmas has different meanings for different people.
Watch a video from our CEO, Thomas Harman, explaining what Christmas is to him.
Christmas is a time for all things warm, cozy and familiar. Christmas feels like a small, mitten-clad hand tucked into mine as we walk through the snow. Christmas looks like my mom’s grin and the twinkle in my dad’s eye as my parents stand beaming at the front door, welcoming weary travelers. Christmas sounds like the carols we all sing around the piano, as we’ve done since I was a little girl. Christmas smells of cinnamon and cloves and fresh pine needles, and tastes like pot roast and apple pie just out of the oven. Christmas is a time where we all can come home, no matter how far we’ve gone.
