52% of senior managers say their office won't have a holiday celebration this year.

Is your company having a holiday party? Then count your blessings because more than half of organizations are ditching the holiday event this year, according to a recent survey from OfficeTeam. In many cases, that decision is based on the desire to remain frugal in light of today's economic uncertainty, rather than on a Grinch-like mentality. The truth is that both managers and employees wholeheartedly give their office holiday celebrations high marks, so those going without one this year will surely miss it. However, if you are heading to a seasonal company soiree, make sure your behavior doesn't fall into the following classic "Office Party Animal" traps (also presented by OfficeTeam). Clearly, once you gather employees and booze in a room after hours, certain "memorable" moments may follow, but you don't want those moments to damage your career. So read the following tips to have a fun party that won't jeopardize your job. More than 1,010 senior managers and 400 employees at U.S. companies took part in the research.
