It’s the last few days before
Christmas and all you can think about is finishing work, but you’re stuck at
the office until Christmas Eve. You’re probably not in the mood to work. Yes,
there might be an office Christmas tree and even tinsel on your desk, but to be

Highlights include The Pogues, a bit of Mariah and obviously some festive Wham.

snacks but don't let that stop you on eating them… and it. Will. Be. Glorious.

Christmas’ and you’re expected to put a few extra pounds on right?
A little game that you can enjoy on
your last few days is the phone game. Choose a word (the more niche, the
better), and whichever of your colleagues casually slips it into a phone
conversation first, wins. Go on, try and get ‘hippopotamus’ into your next
