    December 21, 2021 • LIFE

    A big warm hello to all of our beautiful customers, it’s been a big year for all of us and I think this year we are looking forward to the festive season as much as ever. We thought we would do a little bit of a special blog post this festive season and peek into the festive traditions of some of our Biome staff. 

    This time of the year looks different for everybody and we all have certain traditions, dishes, people, or places that warm our hearts and help us recharge for the new year. We hope that you will enjoy getting to know some of our incredible staff members. With no further ado, here they are, and here’s how they are celebrating this year.
