May Your Days Be Merry and Bright

 Every year, on the first Monday after Thanksgiving, we arrive at work as usual, and find the lobby of DAT's Portland headquarters transformed into a magical place. Lights, greenery, gifts and toys are arranged artfully on every surface, with an illuminated tree at the center. For the next few weeks, as the days grow shorter, the display cheers us and encourages us to be our best selves.

After the New Year, the lobby decor will again be subdued, but we can maintain the holiday spirit in our hearts.

May all your days be merry.
