At Latham Hi-Tech Seeds, we have been kicking off the holidays with an all-company potluck since 2009. This year, we thought our gathering was worthy of a Christmas poem. Enjoy our little story and our pictures! Here’s to carrying on your own cherished family traditions this season.

This week at Latham Seeds, we all gave a cheer

For the food and the sweaters — yes, our potluck was here!

Crockpots and cookies all waited in line

And the tacos arrived, just precisely on time.


Who brought that cheese dip? Who made those bars?

Mexican sushi? Oh, we’re eating like stars.

“Feliz Navidad” was our theme for this year,

There were jalapeños galore, for those with no fear.

We had cheesy corn and tortillas, beans and rice

And all the Christmas staples – so much sugar, so much spice!


Our ugly sweater contest brought Quentin some fame.

But who knew Spanish Bingo is the best reindeer game?

Quentin was our big winner!


Personalized ornaments were hung on the tree

As a thank you to Team Latham for everyone to see.

With hearts and bellies full, no one left without

Because a tradition like this is what family’s all about.
