Few days in the calendar ignite a response quite like Christmas Day. Whether or not you celebrate it, support it, or even enjoy it, there’s no denying it casts an enormous shadow over the end of the year. And, if the food and retail sectors are any measure, the shadow creeps further every year. But while the actual day and the break it sits amongst can trigger just about anywhere on the emotional spectrum, when it comes to the workplace it is usually looked upon favourably. By most, anyway. And not just because it signals the approaching holiday that many feel well and truly ready for, but because it usually gives work colleagues the chance to relax their faces, both literally and figuratively, and enjoy a work Christmas party.
