Fun Ideas For the Holidays
The holiday season is a great time to share some smiles
and laughs!

  1. Have a humorous gift exchange at work. This works great if you have a healthy humor climate at work where people use humor in a positive way.

  2. Just before the holidays, encourage people to bring some of their favorite ethnic holiday treats to work. Coming from a Norwegian background, I'd bring rosettes, fatigmand and lefse.

  3. Decorate a tree for the holidays with a humorous flair. For example, a car dealership could decorate a tree using car parts.

  4. Save the holiday cards you receive this year and "recycle" them next year. Just cross out the sender's signature, sign your name, and mail it back to the person who gave it to you. You'll start a humorous tradition.

  5. Look for opportunities to take a funny photo of yourself or your family. Then use it on a photo holiday greeting card. I've sent a photo card sharing my Halloween costume as a power-nerd.

  6. Create your own customized gift wrap. For example, on a large-sheet photo copier you could make personalized wrapping paper decorated with family photos.

  7. Wrap a holiday gift in a "nest of boxes" (a small box in a larger box, in a larger box, etc.). when the large box is opened by the recipient, the box inside is addressed to someone else. And the next box is addressed to someone else! The final box indicates who really receives the gift_a "musical chairs" style of gift exchange

  8. Make extra effort to guarantee that your holiday party is FUN. People won't remember the chicken dinner a year from now. But they'll always remember when they've had a great time. Your investment making sure the event is entertaining gives you great returns in goodwill.

  9. Assign a committee to prepare some holiday fun. Write a script filled with humor about the company and people you work with. Write a song parody of one of your favorite holiday tunes which is a tribute to your workplace. Present it at a holiday party_or post it on a bulletin board at the office.

  10. Remember the true sprit of the holidays_is the season to be jolly! Decorate your face with a smile and share it with others.
