The conference room of our building. Our company has one of our accounts (a BBQ place) cater a lunch for the company (probably in lieu of a payment or two on some deliveries). Nothing big.

My last job, we had a party on a Wednesday afternoon, as Wednesdays were typically our slowest day. Pretty much a pot luck thing.

The only true employee Christmas party I ever went to was back in 2000 when I was working for ASA. They actually rented a ballroom at a nearby hotel and while it was a cash bar, at least we didn't have to pay to come to the party (Some friends of mine that were working at AirTran [I had left there earlier in the year] said that for their party, you had to buy a ticket which was IIRC, $30.). I went to it straight from work, as I had worked for a another guy on my off day.

I'm self employed, so every day is a part-ay.  Big grin

I have been invited to the corporate party of my biggest client, being held next weekend at a local hotel in town. Full bar, food, dancing. We have the option of getting a room for a reduced rate but we live very close by so it's not necessary.

Even though I don't work there while going to school I still get invited. Our Christmas party is held in our shop, we clear the machines off to the side, have pizza, beer and indoor hockey in the shop. It suits the people that work there well, I can't imagine a bunch of construction landscapers in a fancy restaurant anyhow.

Last year we did it in a ballroom. In airline terms it is a giant hookup really. Pretty fun when you are single.

My fellow coworker has a beach house and wants to hold a party. I think it sounds like a cool idea. As I work X-Mas eve, I want to venture at some time fool around. My Store manager loves to have fun.

As usual, most aviation-related christmas parties including our Air North one and the PAN party (originally started as a thing put on by ATC for Pilots, but has since become one of those things where basically everyone who has anything to do with aviation is welcome) are at the transportation museum. Basically same set up every year, they have a large empty room and set up a table with food down the middle, have some drinks in the corner, chairs set up here and there, etc.

This is a problem when you work remotely. I am in Seattle, my job is in New Jersey - and so is my Christmas party.  Sad


But that was when I ruled the world

I'm not going to the company Christmas party. I'll just end my shift as usual, and go home. The party is going to be in the Parque de Diversiones, which is in a part of La Uruca where I'll get instantly mugged if I try to wait for a taxi on the way home. Plus the party they do sucks and is a total waste of money that could have been spent on our monthly bonus, which is now going to the pockets of the people in upper management. I only went there once anyway, and even then it was something different, more formal than what they're doing now.

I really doubt we'll be having a formal Christmas party (we're 5 people in the office...  Silly ) but knowing my boss, she'll likely organize something fun and invite a bunch of her friends (and customers) over.  bigthumbsup 


Don't expect to see me around that much (if at all) -- the contact link should still work, though.

We have a Christmas Lunch. Since we're a government office, we cannot use public funds (our budget) to pay for it so everyone who eats chips in $3.75. With a couple hundred people contributing, they usually put out a very good spread. Not everyone can eat at the same time as we have to keep the offices running. When we had clerks working a full night shift, we'd start our office party just after closing the Civil Filing counter at 9PM. Sometimes we'd go potluck, but usually we'd chip in and have it catered.

Anyways, I plan to attend with two or three guests. Good food and most of the serving is done by supervisors-often the Clerk of the Court and her Associate Clerks.

I generally make it a rule not to attend such functions. Invariably, someone (or a group of someones) will be drunk. It is very difficult to view someone as a professional when you see them falling over, slurring their words, groping or being groped, etc.

I did go last year though, mostly due to the door prizes and the fact that I didn't have to pay to attend, as in years past. To be fair though, my coworkers did do a bit of arm twisting.  Big grin Ironic, when you consider some of them they really didn't treat me all that well during normal working hours (long story).

One day I hope to work for a company where I look forward to the annual Christmas party.

Oh I totally understand , we have all been there done that. The company Im in now is very good with a close team who will all work together even if its not their job !! I guess its why I have stayed 10 years with the same company. The owner of the company will get up and dance and have the craic with everyone from junior to senior.
