Family, fun and lots of time with Santa Claus.

It was a holly, jolly and anything but silent night at Spud Software on Thursday, December 21st as we gathered family and friends together for our annual Christmas party. Over 135 Spud Software employees, clients and their families came together for a fun night that included food, games, and a visit from the big man in red.

The night's festivities kicked off with hors d'oeuvres and cocktails provided by Brick Street Bar and Grille. There was plenty of mingling over the food and drinks, but guests soon found their way to the casino tables where we had professional dealers on hand to help our celebrants test their luck at a variety of games, including roulette, blackjack and poker.

Every guest was given an envelope filled with play money to use at the gaming tables. The person with the biggest winnings at the end of the night was awarded a trophy. Our own Andrew Morris was the big winner this year.

While the big kids played in our casino, we had plenty of activities for the little ones who join us as well. We had stations set up to allow kids to decorate Christmas cookies, ornaments and make slime (because who doesn't love a little ooey-gooey fun?). We also set up one of our conference rooms with a showing of Polar Express.

But the big attraction of the evening was, of course, a visit from Santa Claus himself. Fresh from a visit to Hurley's NICU, (which earned him a mention on Good Morning America), Santa stopped in for photos with guests young and old.

Children lined up to sit on Santa's lap and he gave each one a present as we took pictures. Families got an instant print complete with a decorative border. And we only had one child cry when placed on Santa's lap!

Big kids got in on the fun too. A few lucky guests took their turns sitting on Santa's knee...

...and later he walked around the casino and posed for selfies.

Everyone got in on the fun and had an amazing time, making this one of Spud's best parties yet. We'd like to thank all of the guests who joined us, and for those of you who couldn't make it, we hope you had still had a wonderful holiday season.

From all of us at Spud Software,
we wish you a very happy and prosperous New Year!
