Happy Holidays To Train Signal Fans Across The Globe!By Kasia Lorenc
Hey there TST readers!
The whole Train Signal gang is sending you warm wishes and
happy computer training for this joyous holiday season!
May the new year bring you lots of success on your certification exams, that promotion
(or dream job) you’ve been waiting for and everything else your hearts desire.
Happy Holidays & Happy New Year from all of us here at Train Signal!

Each year the Train Signal team gets together for a little holiday party.
It’s nothing fancy, just us and our significant others …
enjoying some good food,
a couple of drinks,
and just for fun, we do a white elephant gift exchange. Zach (below) was the first to start off the festivities this year.
It’s a fun game where everyone brings a wrapped gift, typically something inexpensive and funny …
like an adult size boy scout shirt that Sandy was so happy to get,
a box of old 8-tracks that Mel will be sure to enjoy,
or a beta fish that should have been in a box labeled: DO NOT SHAKE.
(Don’t worry, Shaky the Fish is doing fine).
The fun part of the game is that when it is your turn, you can either unwrap a new present or steal one from someone else.
Which is what quickly happened to the bottle of Jack that Iman got.
So if you do get lucky and actually end up with something good, like a t-shirt with a funny picture of your boss on it …
don’t hold your breath, because chances are someone else is already eying it.
And then it’s your turn to unwrap a new present all over again!
Sometimes the stealing can go a little too far …
like with this year’s light-up Mona Lisa picture that was stolen not once …
not twice …
but three times!
And even when sometimes it might seem that everyone just wants to steal from you …
no matter how horribly bad the gifts you keep getting may be …
it’s all in good spirit!
You never know, maybe you’ll be lucky enough to walk out with a giant, stuffed gorilla,
a horribly smelling candle for your office,
or something that’s actually useful — like some batteries.
There’s nothing like the Train Signal Holiday Party — and we’ve got t-shirts to prove it!
Happy Holidays Everyone! This year, Murphy the Angry Rooster is coming home with me
