13 Aug 5 Reasons You Need A Monthly Cake Day
Doesn’t it feel like it is ALWAYS someone’s birthday in the office? Not that we’re complaining. Yay to Graham’s 50th if there’s a cake lurking about (who is Graham again?). But let’s be real… the recycled birthday banner, perpetual half-inflated balloons and barrage of bloomin’ Colin the Caterpillar – it’s just not what it should be. Sound familiar? Here’s 5 reasons why you could probably do with a monthly cake day!
Do birthdays right!
By grouping employees by ‘birthday month’ and having a monthly cake day to celebrate them all, you can make office birthdays what they should be! So much more momentous and way less time-consuming. And there’s no better excuse to bring the whole office together, away from the computers for just 10 minutes, than through the medium of cake. And by cake we mean proper cake, none of this supermarket nonsense.
No risk of forgetting anyone’s birthday
We all hate that awkward moment when you realise it was someone’s birthday and everyone forgot. A monthly cake day is the perfect ‘get out of jail free’ card. And for those sneaky people who like to keep their birthday secret (and take away good excuse for treats), a monthly cake day means there is no escape!
Only sing the awkward Happy Birthday once
It’s awkward for us, it’s awkward for them. If you only have to sing it once a month and the birthday people can share the discomfort with their birthday month peers, it’s a win-win for everyone.
The anticipation and excitement of cake day
No one can deny the sheer excitement of finding out there’s cake in the office. Schedule a monthly cake day and the whole office has something to look forward to. Keep them guessing by surprising your colleagues with a different flavour every month and make sure everyone gathers around for the big reveal!
Because if none of the above reasons are good enough, then accept you don’t need an excuse.
Daily, weekly, monthly, yearly – just have a bloody cake day. No explanation needed.
