Christmas work parties start in November so now is a good time to think about the etiquette of these parties.
They are a great time to relax with the co-workers you have been with all year and have some fun. It is a great occasion to get dressed up in a lovely party frock instead of being in your conservative work clothes.
However, there are a few rules around Christmas work parties that you need to respect. Even though it may be held outside work hours and in a lovely venue, it is still a work function. You may not see it, but you are being watched by management so the following are my tips:
. Do not drink too much
. Wear a lovely outfit but not the most revealing one you have in your wardrobe
. Leave at the time that has been specified on the invitation
. Do not be the party clown
If you follow the above you can still have a great time and be in line for that promotion next year
