With 1 week to go until the Christmas Party season, get prepared to witness some awkward dancing, horrendous disco tunes and of course, the dreaded Christmas party speech!

Of course, we can all understand a festive selfie or two and a quick gander at Facebook to check you aren’t tagged in any awful photos yet… But there’s always someone who takes it too far. Just make sure you aren’t sat with the culprits!

Secret Santa is always a gamble and there’s no telling what you’ll open! We’ve all experienced the dread Christmas socks at our office christmas parties! Let’s hope it’s someone else this year!

All of a sudden, before you know it the boss stands up, clinks his glass and you realise it’s time for the Christmas party speech! Each year the speech reminds you that there’s a tough year ahead. Talk about being a party pooper. This is something you definitely don’t need while you’re enjoying your Christmas party!

There’s always one (usually the person we least expect) who breaks out some hilarious dance moves! After getting a few laughs with video evidence, things tend to go a little too crazy, eventually making everyone avert their eyes.

It can be hard to say no when the boss arranges a bar tab. Although it can only lead to an embarrassing situation! And it won’t be forgotten until next year’s party.
