Christmas Gives You Wings

It's that time of year again, the silly season! The office I am currently working in has a competition every year for the department with the best Christmas decorations and this year, one of the departments has gone all out and created something truly brilliant. Each year, there is a theme to the decorations. This year, the powers that be have decided that the decorations should be original, and make good use of recycled materials.

Being developers, a few of the people in the office have a craving for a certain caffeine based product (after all, a developer is simply a machine that turns caffeine into code!), and over the course of the year have managed to keep all of their discarded cans of Red Bull. Once the competition was announced, they decided that they could make use of the cans (which were, at the time, erected as a tower in the corner of the office) by using them as the theme for the Christmas decorations. The results, it has to be said, are astounding!

Underneath the Christmas tree, there is a Red Bull train. The thing I love most about this is that the guys have used the ring pulls from the cans as a track around the tree. The cotton wool as smoke is a nice touch too!

The area in it's full glory. Notice that the Christmas hat that Glenn is wearing is also "decorated" with a Red Bull can

Not quite enough cans to spell "Christmas"!

Red Bull as a Christmas present

Merry Christmas, everybody
