We do Christmas differently

This year at Areco we thought of something we hadn't before. Maybe Christmas, we thought, doesn't come from a store. And Maybe Christmas...perhaps...means a little bit more. So, we asked some happy co-fellow, to be part of a very merry show. Our commitment started in low, then during filming it started to grow. This jolly movie proves true Areco-spirit, in a whole new way. And our hearts grew surely, three sizes that day! With these words of wisdom, thanks to Dr. Seuss, Wish you all a joyful Christmas, with some Santa Clues!
