It’s that time of year. A couple of weeks before Christmas, everyone gets to together for the Office “Holiday Party.” I call it the Christmas Party, because I celebrate Christmas. But I do understand that others have different beliefs than I. These are important beliefs like needing to be the first one in line to eat, on the front row of the group picture and not being able to go home without a door prize.
We have our party during the day and stretch lunch out for an extra hour. The best I can figure, the planning for this party takes a great deal of effort. Why? Well, they start sending us messages in October about meetings to plan this party and who is going to bring what and how much everyone needs to kick in. No one ever goes to these planning meetings, so the same person gets stuck making decisions it seems.
