Words to describe 2016

Our Holiday Party coincided with the first big (actual) snow.  We started the party at 4pm (the early start time seems to be a regular thing with my company) and played poker and blackjack until 7pm as the snow came down.

One of our contests was to write a word that describes 2016.  Then, we voted on our favorite.

“Surreal” was the winner. (It doesn’t look like it, because I took these photos two days after the party. The star stickers weren’t very sticky and had fallen off.) “Emotional” and “Teamwork” were runners up.

I was quite pleased when, later that month, “surreal” also became the word of 2016.  Way to predict it DHM Research.

  1. It’s really sad how nearly all of them are negative, not that I don’t understand why they are. I think I would’ve put my star on “surreal” as well. Did the winner get anything?

    1. Yes, I don’t think anything in the realm of “jubilant” or even “nice” was a word that worked with 2016 for myself and my colleagues.

      The winner got a Fred Meyer Gift Card worth $25.00

  2. That’s quite a fun way to close the year. I like it. And agree…tragic might have been my choice though!
