After a long, long year, our office is finally going to celebrate today in the fashion that many offices do - with a Christmas party.
So I want to hear from you: what are the best, and worst, Christmas parties you've ever been to?
For most of my professional career, Christmas parties were an awful time. They were badly organised, poorly run and it was being done in the context of a toxic environment - so nobody was having fun, even when management was trying to give them the space to do so.
Since coming to Kotaku, Christmas parties (the whole one that I've experienced) have been a different affair entirely. We went to a park, played soccer, lost the ball in the ocean nearby and had to, er, manually fish it out, and generally had a fun time.
But I've not yet seen anything particularly rowdy or anything nightmarish that would go in the bank of stories you tell at a bar, or at an event.
What about yourselves? What's the craziest, funniest, or weirdest Christmas parties you've been to, or things you've seen at a Christmas party?
