If you are one of the lucky people to be gainfully employed this holiday season, you may also be fortunate to have an office holiday party to go to.

It's a great time to mix with your co-workers in a social, non-work-related environment. However, that doesn't mean it's going to be a good party.

Here are some signs you're at a bad office holiday party.

It ends too early -- Just as you're starting to have a good time, everyone starts to leave.

You're under pressure -- You feel pressured to suck up to the bosses and make a good impression instead of letting loose and having a good time.

It's at the office -- Unless you work at Disneyland, there is nothing festive about your office. The best you could hope for is seeing someone get drunk and make a photocopy of their butt.

Everyone is talking about work -- When work conversation dominates the party you can pretty much forget about having any fun.

There's no entertainment -- Standing around watching people eat and drink does not qualify as entertaining.

The food is lousy -- You can't be merry without the eating (and drinking) part.
