Gorilla Greetings: How our Team Spends the Holiday Season


2016 has been another great year for Gorilla Logic. We have had double-digit growth for the past 3 years in a row, expanded our operations in the U.S. and Costa Rica and opened a new office on the 10th floor of the Sabana Center in San Jose, Costa Rica. As 2016 comes to a close, we’d like to take the time to share how our team spends the holiday season.

Some of our most popular traditions include spending time with family, eating as much as possible, cooking traditional Latin American food (like tamales, rompope and hallacas), dressing up pets, wearing ugly holiday sweaters, watching Christmas movies, relaxing and reflecting on the past year.

We’ll let our Gorillas take it from here:


Playing lots of board and card games with family, watching old Christmas movies, and drinking hot chocolate with LOTS of marshmallows!

We don’t celebrate any holidays other than New Years, but on New Year’s Eve we usually get together and appreciate the good and bad of the past year along with our hopes of a wonderful new year.

I like to force my dogs to wear sweaters and pose for pictures with them. I also like to adopt a family to shop for.

I like to spend time cooking new recipes and having guests to share these meals.

Relax and lose my weight gained during the year, read several pending books, finish several pending tasks and dream ….

Lay down knowing that I don’t have to worry about anything! I surround myself with my family and eat all the holiday food that I can.
