3 TV Episodes That Made us Love Holiday Office Parties

christmas ornament

TV sitcoms have a knack for finding that "human" element in a place that's so often viewed as mechanistic. And when it comes to the small screen, there are certain shows that know how to highlight the cocktail of awkwardness, cheer, and comradery that is the holiday office party. 

1. THE OFFICE 

Season 10 Episode 2

Perhaps the most iconic of holiday office parties is Season 10 Episode 2 of The Office. Granted, any of their many holiday parties is list-worthy, but none is more memorable than season 10’s “Christmas Party.” 

Despite the $20 gift limit, Michael gifts an iPod to Ryan and receives an oven mitt in exchange. This act sets off a series of jealousy, name-calling, and “Yankee Swapping.” When Michael reveals he purchased the iPod because of a Christmas bonus—everyone turns sour. 

Meanwhile, Meredith is breaking corporate rules by getting hammered, and Jim’s from the heart gift goes to Dwight instead of his intended target—Pam. 

WHY WE LOVE IT?

Work-place gift-giving can sometimes be an awkward and confusing tradition. This over the top episode taps into the uncomfortable things that sometimes come a long with holiday office parties.

2. 30 ROCK: “LUDACHRISTMAS"

Season 2 Episode 9

For some reason the All-In-One Paper Shredder/Photo Scanner seems to be the gift of the season. The only problem? The acronym PS is used as a label for both functions—leaving its user clueless as to whether or not they are about to shred or scan a photo. Needless to say, everyone tosses their machines in the trash. 

Jack’s overbearing and manipulative mom comes to visit, as does Liz’s overly positive “Middle American”family. Naturally their perfect little smiles and sweaters oblige Jack’s mom to try and "break" them as a family—she succeeds. Meanwhile Kenneth Parcell has locked the entire office in a room to remind them of the “true meaning of Christmas.” 

WHY WE LOVE IT?

It reminds us of the unavoidable family drama that ensues during the holidays, that family and the workplace don’t always mix—and that even if our families aren't perfect, we still love them.

3. THE MINDY PROJECT: “JOSH AND MINDY’S CHRISTMAS PARTY”

Season 1 Episode 9

In light of the holiday season Mindy decides to throw an office Christmas party. At the party, Danny hopes to show off his gingerbread house but becomes upset when it gets overshadowed by Mindy’s big-shot sports agent boyfriend. 

The festivities come to an abrupt stop when Mindy listens to Josh’s voicemail and finds out that he’s cheating on her. Josh’s GF shows up and attempts to beat up Mindy but her demeanor softens when she finds out that Mindy had no idea that she was Josh’s longtime girlfriend.

WHY WE LOVE IT?  

It takes a hilariously fresh spin on the holidays—providing an especially intriguing narrative for those who still are still in the dating scene.

Startup Ignition

SALT LAKE CITY, UT—CEO Zach Olson addressed a group of Utah's youngest entrepreneurs, an event put on in conjunction with Startup Ignition's startup bootcamp. It was a chance for entrepreneurs to network, get feedback, share their stories and get a personal lesson from Bookly's CEO on how to properly raise and maintain finances for a startup. Olson advised young startups to raise more capital than they project they will need, to tailor their business structure according to tax needs, and to look to digital accounting solutions rather than esoteric bookkeeping practices.
