Does the office where you work do Christmas? Christmas party/parties? Secret Santa? Decorations? Christmas music throughout the day? Seasonal volunteering?
Which camp do you side with?
Do you welcome the festivities and office traditions?
LET'S GET INTO THE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT!
Or are you weary and frustrated by them?
In the records department, I decorated my corner. We've been listening to Christmas music since the past week.
My office decorates heavily. But there is no gift giving and no parties. The boss considers that a personal thing. No reason she should get involved. She does our birthdays, with a cake and an office get together, but will not divulge her own birthday. I don't mind. She is still my favorite of all bosses.
Not since I worked at a catholic hospital when I turned sixteen until I left school in 1964. After that, I worked with people of varying beliefs. Maybe I was lucky.
One of the reasons I'm glad I don't work anymore.
I always found all the decorations too much for me. It's all about artsy craftsy and I find it intrusive. I've learned when anyone asks me "Are you ready for Xmas?" I say "yeah".
Even worse, at my longest job, I was the one who had to get all the Xmas **** out. Hated it.
Then I had to put it all away. Hated that more.
