Tips To Survive Your Office Christmas Party

31 October 2016


Tips To Survive Your Office Christmas Party The Christmas Office party can be a great way to relax and have fun during the festive season. Survival tactics for the Christmas party have two aims: to keep you healthy and to prevent severe embarrassment. Let’s look at some ways to survive your office Christmas Party:
  • Survive Your Christmas Office PartyWhile alcohol can make you feel sociable and merry, too much can cause you to embarrass yourself and leave you with a bad hangover. Don’t drink or eat excessively – you’ll be thankful for it the next morning!
  • Eat plenty of food before the party, as this will reduce the absorption of alcohol. Drink lots of water so that you do not arrive dehydrated.
  • Be wary of punch bowls and cocktails. These may taste fruity and mild, but it is difficult to assess how much alcohol they contain. You may find yourself drinking to excess if you have too many.
  • Survive Your Christmas Office PartyRemember that alcohol, mistletoe, and your boss are a dangerous combination! Be extremely careful who you kiss at the party, as any photo taken of the incident could appear on Facebook to embarrass you for a long time, especially if you have a partner.
  • Avoid talking too much about work. A Christmas party is about fun, and you’re not there to remind people of the office. The golden rule of conversation is not to say anything that would embarrass you if replayed the next day at work.
Of course, a great venue is one of the first things to sort out if you’re looking for a night to remember rather than forget, so take a look at what your nearest Hallmark has to offer. For more ideas on how to survive your  office Christmas party, check out Buzzfeed's tips here.
