With the year coming to an end, it only means one thing: planning your office Christmas party. Ugly sweater competitions and tacky Christmas decorations are overused and underwhelming, so getting everyone into the Christmas spirit can be a challenge.

Get researching and find the most outrageous or most interesting traditions from around the world to bring to the table. With each person assigning themselves a country, a range of traditional foods, costumes and games will provide an diverse spin on the festive season. Hosting games of worldly trivia, as well as best dressed competitions will let your co-worker’s competitive spirit shine.
