You better Belize it
For many people the 15th of January is the saddest day of the year, known as Blue Monday it’s a day of sad times with post-Christmas blues and poorly funded bank accounts. Well at RockIT we turned The Blue, to a cornucopia of colours, by hosting a Belize day, complete with beach hut styling and absolute Belizean food heaven, thanks to mamma Jones.
It was all the final part of our New Year social media competition, where we all cast our votes with likes and shares on a range of different countries and cultures ranging from Scotland and Portugal to further reaching corners of the globe with Belize, the Philippines, India, South Africa and America.
It was pretty clear within a few days that Belize was the front-runner. Closely followed by Scotland and America. I for one shared Belize for the win and I’m so glad that I did. Not only has it meant a day full of colour, which on a raining Monday in January should be compulsory, but the buffet style all you can eat treat was a mouth-watering delight of coconut rice, jerk chicken, plantain, sweet potato pie, and potato salad. I’m not even exaggerating when I say best food day ever.
All jokes aside though. The idea for running this competition in the first place was to help to maintain positivity and keep our teams motivated throughout the winter months. And although spring is around the corner, if you step into our offices you’d think summer has arrived.
