OXP [Office Xmas Party]

16 Dec

This weekend we hosted the annual Office Christmas Party extravaganza – a holiday tradition.  This dates back to our college days and is now the 5th time we have kept the tradition going since graduating.

Office Christmas Party

Everyone comes to the party wearing their “best” Christmas attire.  This generally means the ugliest/most outrageous Christmas sweaters or Christmas business attire that people can get their hands on.  We then make name tags with our position in the “company” and take on these aliases for the duration of the party.

Christmas blazers. Terry with a "y" and Terri with an "i".  I was the CEO/boss man.

Now that we are older and more closely resemble adults, we have upgraded and have a pretty decent spread of snacks and treats.  We also had some delicious holiday dranks – wassail, hot chocolate (spiked with peppermint schnapps), and rum and egg nog (not delicious).

Wreath cookies, Chex mix, cookies, and meat balls.

So festive!

All in all, it was another great holiday party!

      I know – we forgot to take many pictures at the party. Andy had a great sweater, I had a ridiculous outfit with a turtle neck and 70’s pants, and a guy named Kevin wore a onesy (though he wore pants over it).
