‘Tis the Season: Dos and Don’ts of Holiday Party Etiquette

‘Tis the Season: Dos and Don’ts of Holiday Party Etiquette

Anna Hennings |

Whether it’s a company bash, a family gathering or a personal, after-hours shindig, it’s undeniably holiday party season. You might be gearing up for a whole slew of functions, or perhaps just one, but be sure not to leave without considering what behavior is appropriate for each.

Your Plus-One

Choosing an appropriate date to a holiday party is essential. Your date, or guest, is an extension of yourself. You must make sure that they will represent you in the brightest, most positive light possible, especially at an important party.

Is he or she respectful? Will they drink too much and become an embarrassment to you? Will they divulge private details of your personal life? Is he or she even a social person and likely to enjoy the event? Can they hold their own in a crowd of unfamiliar faces?

Bring someone along who you trust and who will feel comfortable (or comfortable enough) and will have fun in the situation you’re about to force them into.

If you’re already attached, you’re lucky! This isn’t likely a problem for you.
