8 Tips To Survive Your Office Christmas Party
1. Prepare yourself mentally and show up.
2. Arrange for a friend to call you at a set time.
3. Decide what to wear.
Find out what everyone else is wearing before the party and match the tone with your outfit
4. Arrive on time.
This is an office party, not a discotheque. So turning up 'fashionably late' is not an option and could have you missing out on all the fun.
Be sure to acknowledge all your co-workers, and especially your superiors and their associates as this will put you in good stead; the Christmas party is an excellent opportunity to cement relationships and to get known in a good way.
6. Drink responsibly.
Don't forget where you are – technically, still at work because you're with the work crowd, so treat the party as an extension to your work day. Keep in mind that everything observed has the potential to be turned into a judgment on your professionalism and work suitability. \
7. Be tactful and careful about declaring your undying romantic intentions.
8. Help others.
If you see a co-worker overdoing the drinking or making a move when they are clearly not fully mentally cognizant, step in and bail them out.
