THE DO's AND DON'TS AT YOUR OFFICE XMAS PARTY

November 27, 2016


Oh Christmas Parties....! Love them or loath them, they are that beloved yearly traditional office get-together that everyone in the office looks on with great anticipation during this time of the year.
You've all worked so hard during the year and this is the one time that you get to forget the stresses of keeping deadlines and so forth, and just let your hair down and party with your coworkers like there's no tomorrow!

It is that one event that is particularly talked about months afterwards, even after the event itself has long gone - this is that work even that you reminisce about who wore what, who left early and who got waaaaaaaaay too wasted!

But even as jovial and merry a Christmas Party can be, that is not to say that there aren't any unwritten rules to follow, particularly when it comes to an office Christmas Party. 

Read on to find out the low-down in Office Xmas Party Etiquette.


RULE NUMBER ONE:
DO look  effortless and chic in a statement black dress, coupled with minimal accessories,  killer heels, and finished off with a daring red lip for just a bit of sexy!



RULE NUMBER TWO:
DON'T look trashy in a dress that is way too tight and way too short that you can't even bend over without your knickers showing! Remember, this is a work parry and not a night out on the pull with your friends.



RULE NUMBER THREE:
DO  treat this as a mini networking event with your other coworkers and DO remember to be social and go talk to  the guys from the other department, you never know, there could be a better position opening up soon that you might wanna be considered for, so mingling with others and creating new work-buddies might stand to your favor some day.



RULE NUMBER FOUR:
For the love of God, DO NOT, I repeat, DON'T hook up with the guy from the Marketing Department, because this is only going to come back and bite you in the ass! 
Everyone's gonna know about it, it'll be talked about for months on end and, worse, it won't reflect favorably on you. So don't do it!



RULE NUMBER FIVE:
Even though this is a party, DO remember to uphold yourself professionally and remember that your boss might be keeping an eye on you.



RULE NUMBER SIX:
DON'T get waaaaaaaaay too drunk that your boss feels obligated to get you on the next taxi before it's even 11pm


RULE NUMBER SEVEN:
DO have fun and celebrate that all expense paid,  night out with your work buddies. I mean, how often will you drink a bottle of bubbly for free?!
So have fun!
