Christmas in Office or WFH- Here Are the Best Ways You Can Celebrate Christmas at Work

December comes with the vibes of Christmas. This winter month brings the joy of festivals, love, and happiness. It is a time of celebration all around the world.

The festive vibes have become quite different since the pandemic. Some activities have got to their normal phase yet they are not quite like the regular fun.

Christmas is a festival that brings cosiness to peopleโ€™s hearts. Be it the celebration at home or office, it holds a great place in our hearts.

The Pandemic and The Christmas Celebrations

The pandemic has widely affected the celebrations of Christmas. Mid-December used to be the time when people would start prepping up for Christmas at their offices and home.

Offices during the time of Christmas have an exciting atmosphere. There are events hosted, offices get decked up, secret Santa is played, and more.

The Christmas celebrations have now become different. The work-from-home culture has created mixed feelings among the employees. Some feel happy to be at home and chill in their own cosiness. On the other hand, some tend to miss the office Christmas celebrations.

How To Celebrate Christmas in Offices?

Since employees want to leave for home early to enjoy with their friends, this time can be a bit lethargic at the offices. So, there are certain things that you can do to make this time exciting at the office. These include:

It's Time to Bring in The Secret Santa

This is one of the best ways you can spice up the Christmas celebrations in offices. Play secret Santa with your colleagues. It creates excitement among the employees to be a secret Santa for someone and receive a secret gift too.

Host Events

This is a great idea to keep up the celebrating spirit in the office. Hosting events promotes teamwork among the employees. It can be a fun activity to prep and have fun at the festive events.

Desk Dรฉcor Competition

Another fun activity that you can perform is organizing a fun competition. In this, you can ask all the employees to decorate their desks. You can also select a judge who can later look at their desks and announce the winner. This helps to create a healthy and fun-filled team spirit during Christmas.

Organize a Family and Friends Day

Since most of the employees want to leave office and have fun with their family and friends, this can be a great idea. A day can be organized when the employees can bring their family and friends to the office. This not only brightens up the festive spirit but also develops a personal bond between colleagues.

Christmas Gifting

This is a great time to distribute small yet memorable gifts. The company can distribute certain gifts to all their employees. This raises the enthusiasm among the employees during the holiday season. Thus, itโ€™s a great way to add to the celebrations of Christmas.

Christmas Potluck

Working from home gets you near your family and old friends. Most of the time during the WFH everyone stays busy during the day and tired at night. This leaves no time to catch up with old friends.

So, you can organize a potluck where your friends and family can bring a dish and you can all enjoy it together at home. This is a fun-filled and happy idea for your Christmas at home

Be Your Own Santa

Christmas is a season of fun and happiness. The WFH regime can be lonely if you are away from your friends and family. So be your own Santa and get yourself something that you love. It's time you know that you must keep yourself happy too.

There can be various other ways by which you can make your WFH Christmas a fun one. These can be playing online games, virtual dinner with colleagues, virtual karaoke, virtual baking contest, etc.
