That time of the year has come and gone again! Bright lights adorned the streets of the Big Apple, snowflakes danced in the cold air, and hearts were filled with joy and anticipation. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it was the holiday season in New York, and the New York Circle of Translators (NYCT) didn’t miss out on the celebration!

On December 9, 2023, the NYCT held its annual Christmas party, and let me tell you, it was quite a spectacle! The venue was lit up with the warmth of the season as translators, interpreters, and representatives from translation agencies across the city gathered to enjoy an afternoon of fun, food, and camaraderie.

The party kicked off with a delicious Middle Eastern feast that delighted the palates of all present. From falafel to hummus, and fresh tabbouleh, there was something to satisfy even the most discerning of eaters. As we savored these culinary delights, lively conversations filled the room, creating a festive and welcoming atmosphere.

Of course, a photo session couldn’t be missed. Attendees gathered to capture the special moments of the luncheon, and some of these snapshots are included in this inaugural edition of the year 2024. You definitely have to check them out to relive the memories!

The party was filled with laughter and joy. Poems were recited, songs were sung, and connections were made that are sure to last well beyond the holiday season. Long-time members mingled with newcomers, sharing experiences and anecdotes in a spirit of joy and mutual support.

One of the highlights of the night was when the outgoing Board was thanked for their hard work and dedication, and the incoming Board was enthusiastically welcomed. There were applause and cheers as the baton was passed to lead the NYCT towards new horizons!

The new Board wasted no time and seized the opportunity to urge all members to collaborate on presenting relevant articles for the industry. Because, as we all know, in the world of translation and interpretation, there are stories to tell, and we all have them: from moments when everything went perfectly to those when things got complicated due to our lack of experience, we all have anecdotes to share! And what better way to learn and grow than by sharing our experiences with colleagues who understand exactly the challenges we face.

So, dear colleagues, get ready to get creative and share those stories that only translators and interpreters can have! Because together, we can learn, grow, and strengthen our professional community.

And speaking of community, how about keeping more frequent meetings of the NYCT? Some suggested that it would be an excellent idea to keep the camaraderie and knowledge exchange alive throughout the year! Do you agree? Let us know in the comments!

In conclusion, the NYCT Christmas bash was an absolute blast, brimming with delectable cuisine, contagious laughter, vibrant melodies, and an unparalleled sense of camaraderie! Here’s to countless more gatherings teeming with unforgettable moments and to an electrifyingly fulfilling and wildly successful 2024, both personally and professionally! Cheers to the adventures that await! 🥂🎉
