We usually have a few departmental parties. The holiday season this year brought Turkey Grazing Day = buffet style spread and 2 Christmas Pizza Parties Oh and my boss brings doughnuts once a week to "thank us" because we've worked so hard on a special project the last few weeks of December.
Be Bold! You only have one life so make it count! Be the change you wish to see in the world and leave your legacy to inspire others.

in my department at work, the managers buy us all a catered lunch (almost 200 people in my office building alone). my manager buys our team a catered lunch also and we have a food day where the rest of us bring in sides and such to go along with the lunch. if we want to decorate our cubicles, that's fine, up to a point. we do a secret santa gift exchange since there are like 33 of us on our team alone.
I would never talk to my BFF the way I talk to myself about my body.
I'm not sure what we do here during the holidays since I started in March. I do see random cakes and cookies being left in the reception area though. I treat them as if they are the devil! LOL! No thanks!
All things are possible through Christ who strengthens me.

Our offices decorates a lot for us. They go all out with trees with presents, and wreaths, and a big tree decorated outside. It's up to us if we want to decorate our cubes.
For all of the admin in the office (roughly 20), we have an in-house "party" catered by our cafeteria. Last year, we each had to wrap an ornament and then we had a yankee ornament swap. We played some games too. It's not the greatest, but it's 2 hours away from our phones and our desks.
Last year, my boss got me some very nice presents, and the other 4 people I work for got me a gift card.
Hey everyone! I am really interested in finding out how you celebrate the holidays in your office. We never do much at my office, only dinner, so I am trying to change it up this year. I will be doing 4 different activities, once a week for the 4 weeks leading to xmas, but I am not sure what the 3rd weeks activity should be. Week 1: Decorating ornamemts for the tree. Week 2: canned food drive Week 3: ????? Week 4: hot chocolate and desserts.
