One more year gone by to organize another Christmas party at the mall. Dusting off last year's scenery, booking the room, and you're about to call the catering staff to order the same plates of finger sweets and sausage rollers you order every year...when you get a flash of inspiration, why don't you do something different for the year?
Christmas celebrations in the offices are an opportunity to thank employees for their great work throughout the year. You try to give the whole group a feeling of appreciation and at the same place have some enjoyment. Put away the gruesome flags and minitrees and try one of these new Christmas celebration concepts.
The Amazing Race is a Christmas celebration and a teambuilding practice all in one, based on the TV show. At the last pit stop there should be the last room again, where a banquet and some fresh beverages are waiting for the tired travelers. Picture from Ugly Christmas Sweater Kit. Everybody is told to find a Christmas pullover that can be worn to the celebration.
Everyone who doesn't show up with a pullover gets one of the replacement pullovers you have at your fingertips and a couple of reins or some other kind of awkward support as an extra. Décor the room with light and funny decoration and award the most stunning pullover.
When your bureau is on the incidental side, why don't you just urge everyone to come home wearing a masked dance? When it comes to decoration, think of volekins, stage jackets and everything decades old - a winter Wunderland topic could also work well. What am I - A great ice-breaker for a celebration when everyone's in outfit.
Nightmare Before Christmas is definitely my favorite topic from this mailing list. Add Tim Burton style to your Christmas celebration and take advantage of all the rest of the Halloween decoration. Add Tim Burton's film tunes to the playbill, along with Halloween celebrities like "The Monster Mash" and "Superstitious" (a great way to get rid of the kitschy Christmas tunes for the evening!). The meal should be the genuine British variety: Meat balls, Mini-Yorkshire poods, firecrackers and mashed potatoes, vanilla pudding... all the classical convenience items.
Purchase a pile of cheap Christmas balls, sparkle pencils, paint, ribbons and other arts and craft and let your customers make their own balls. You could have a nightmare before christmas, or whatever your hearts desire. Then you could use the balls to adorn the bureau pole, and everyone could take their own home for their own one.
For those of us who have grown up in the southern hemisphere, a Christmas without Christmas is magic - where the whole earth is snowed over, and there is figure-skating and hot Chocolate and light shawls and caps. Start the winter with a Winter Wonderland topic. Décor your room to look like a winter mansion with drapes, faerie candles, icecream carvings, glistening flakes of winter frost and cosy Eisbären.
Wonderland in winter could be a particularly interesting topic if, like me, you are living in the southern hemisphere and Christmas takes place during the high season. Make your basement look like Santa's garage - a Christmas visit area, stacks of gifts prepared to go by sledge, and various workplaces where bustling fairies can perform entertaining guest activity.
Have someone in your offices wearing a Santa Claus costume - you can usually find a willing attendee. Christmas Workshop" is also a good way to get your staff to help a charitable cause by having them take meals and provisions for children and help pack gifts.
In a Christmas workshop I like to revive classical children's parties for grown-ups, e.g. when passing the package. Then as a couple, each of the teams tries to pack a gift, with the individual leaning forward and giving directions to help the background individual who cannot see what they are doing. Okay, so if the nightmare before Christmas does not flies topic, then this is definitely my second favorite alternate Offices Christmas celebration topic ideas.
One of the favourites at children's festivals all over the globe, a real pleasure for the team. Whenever a six is thrown, the diced player must hurry to the center of the circle, put on his/her cap, shawl and mittens, and then try to slice a squared piece of hot chocolate out of the pad with a cutter and forks, and eat it.
However, you can also change your dice (an alternate is to roll two dice and each times a doubles dice is thrown, you change them - this may work better for bigger groups). Virtually every land, every religious belief and every cultural tradition is celebrating a holiday around Christmas even if they don't call it Christmas or link it to the same feelings.
So why not celebrating these distinctions with your own Christmas Round the World celebration topic? If you have a multi-cultural company, this is a particularly good topic for you. Empower others to wear costumes or think about how their fathers had Christmas. Enjoy a selection of local dishes from different cultural backgrounds and perform a Christmas medialey and seasonally sung hymns from around the world.
Xmas quiz: Organize your groups together and get them to respond to your Christmas tradition and quizzes question. Make laps for different kinds of question and at the end the winning player receives a price. A Mordmystery Event is a celebration where the members of the crew receive an ID at the beginning of each overnight game.
One of the group was killed, and the killer is one of the group's men. They can find downloaded script for mysterious murders nights on-line. The Haley Productions - several thriller plays to select from. One mysterious homicide will work better in a smaller group ( 8-15 people), but some are intended for groups of 40 or more.
There' s no need for you to play a game in the evenings, because the secret is for you. It' s a wunderful live to Bad Santa, the holiday season is full of lovely, heart-warming and hilariously funny film. One great, cheap topic for an agency event is to pick a few of your favorites and do a little screenings.
Hire a viewer, put bean bags and comfortable armchairs around and deliver classic moviesnacks like poppies, pizzas and chocolate candies. Bonuses if you can find an open-air location (which would be simpler in the South where it could be summer!) and create an open-air cinema. When you want your movies to come alive, include some Christmas drinkers.
Like, you always say "Christmas" every Christmas in a film. Actually, the movies might end VERY funny. Customize your Christmas celebration with a special task, creating assignments, assigning people (every leader knows that delegating is the keys to a winning venture and a stress-free life!), setting landmarks, and being alerted when they're done.
