1. The Date
Christmas is a busy period, the busiest of the year for many people when it comes to social events, so diaries fill up fast. That means you want to get a date pencilled in as early as possible. Send potential options around the office to get a feel for the preferred date, the responses will also give you an indication of numbers for the event. Remember, you can’t please everybody, so it is usually best to go with ‘majority rules’ when choosing your date. Typically, Thursdays and Fridays are most popular so get in early to avoid disappointment.
