So the preparations for all kinds of Christmas parties – corporate, family, office, outdoor – are almost done. And I am sure you guys are all excited to attend the fun gatherings that you have been invited to. But before you hit the party, there are certain etiquettes that you got to bear in mind for retaining your respect and preventing any embarrassing situation. Let’s take a quick look at those etiquettes:
Avoid Getting Drunk
This thing ought to be at the top of every ‘party don’ts’ checklist. The consequences of getting drunk are usually dire – puking, babbling rubbish, losing control, getting involved in an accident – just to name a few. So it is better if you keep your alcohol intake in check while at a Christmas party.
Dress The Right Way
Dressing up appropriately for any kind of event is vital, not just the occasion of Jesus’ birthday. If you are a female and planning to wear a low-cut attire, try not to overdo it. On the other hand, men should refrain from wearing vintage clothing and instead go for something sophisticated & simple.
Being at an X-mas party and eating like a starved person is something that you don’t want to happen to you. So remember your table manners and try not to dive into the delicacies. If it’s a buffet, be patient and wait your turn. Don’t pull your chair right next to it.
Refrain From Making Inappropriate Jokes
Keep your ugly jokes or comments to yourself, don’t say them out loud in front of people who might be from different backgrounds. Most of them may react very differently from what you may have thought.
Socialise For Real
Rather than chatting with your facebook or twitter friends, stay off the Internet for at least the time that you are at the Christmas party. Socialise with real people instead, especially if you are at a corporate or work party. Who knows, you might just end up striking a conversation with your boss and get to know him or her better.
So that’s all for this post folks, remember these things no matter what kind of X-mas party you attend.
