Holiday Wish List

What do you want most for the holidays? In addition to world peace, a few days to relax, and a bountiful holiday meal with family and friends, perhaps some of these things are on your list:

  • Clients to meet your deadlines
  • Brass tax season sundial
  • Computer monitor No. 4 for those accountants who already use three monitors
  • Your boss to serve coffee and a croissant to you every morning in January
  • Shiny new 10-key
  • Holiday card from Ben Bernanke
  • Fancy robe with your firm/company logo on the back
  • Vacation next year with no interruptions from work
  • A crate of Tuna Helper and a jug of eggnog (breakfast of champions)
  • No job stress

During December, we'll highlight gems from what accountants tell us they have on their Christmas lists … except for those on Santa's Naughty List. Type holiday wishes here – it takes five seconds – and you can even make up a name if you don’t want to use your own. Have fun with it and pass it around to coworkers and clients.
