    My holiday parties are usually on polar opposites really wild or strangely tame.

    I have a holiday party coming up next thursday.

    I work in a educational environment and I think the principal did this purposely set it on thursday instead of friday so the teachers won't go ham at the party.

    I plan on drinking heavy on that day. Yambs? we shall see :wink:

    No, I'm on the same boat as you.

    Holiday Party consists of an hour of catered food, forced conversations with the site manager, and a uncomfortable round of White Elephant.

    I think what makes the office atmosphere terrible, is that the site manager doesn't know how to manage. They manage by making them happy so people like her and always tries to justify how good of a manager she is...

    ...When really she depends on her supervisors to do all the work and submits all their reports under her name.

    I work for NuSkin Ent. in Provo, Utah.

    They rent out the University's basketball arena and set it up for a show. This year we are having American Authors perform...


    I don't really know them, but still low key excited.

    In the past we've had LeAnn Rimes and Lonestar.... country >D

    They always give every year, two weeks paid bonus.

    an American Express gift card worth 1000 dollars, a random gift in years past it's been: Apple TV, 250 dollar gift to NIKE, the Fire tablet thing, goPro and etc...

    They also draw names of everyone in the company for a chance to win a car, macbook pro, macbook air, basketball hoop, blendtec, ski passes, and so many other things, These you only have a chance to win though, everything else above is what you normally get every year.

    I had my insurance broker parties last week. It's like 5 parties all in one night and you just hope to one and the other just getting free drinks and apps. It always becomes sort of a **** show at the end but it's pretty funny to see corporate people let their hair down for once. From stories I hear in the past, these corporate parties were insane with people pretty much hooking up with married people at the end of the night and other such drug fun.



    On a related note, my uncle used to work for Zynga who created Farmville and they rented out a club one year and hired Sugar Hill Gang and Tone Loc to perform. Apparently the CEO is some sort of old but young guy at heart. Tech guys have all the fun.

    I work at an ad agency so our holiday parties are a complete ***** show.

    The after party is even worse.

    It's an excuse to get wasted and hook up with co-workers/disregard wedding rings.

    ^^^^Yeah, it's pretty funny. One party I went to, these older managers were all looking for the new receptionist that had to be the age of their daughters. People just have no disregard.

    Our Holiday party really isn't a party, its more like a fancy lunch or dinner.

    We get into work at regular hours and work for like 2 hours. At about 11 am, the party bus is here to pick us up (theres about 12 total in our office).

    If its a dinner thing, then we work our regular 8 hours, go home, get dressed, get the wife and head to a restaurant of his choice. These are more expensive so its rarely done.

    Our boss likes to take us to a Fancy Restaurant in Beverly Hills and there, we have a 7 course meals.

    All meals come with their own wine. Its nice and all but I dont drink alcohol so Im like whatever about it. But the food, OMG the food is great. We eat beyond well at these events.

    The first time Ive ever tried caviar was at our holiday party a few years ago.


    Not sure what we're doing this year, but what I do know is that it will be a lunch thing.
