Office holiday parties are a time to let your hair down, but do yourself a favor and follow these rules in order to avoid making a fool of yourself.

Yes, you already got the job, but, like a job interview, you should be on your best behavior, lest you ruin your name among co-workers and your boss.

You don't want to make a faux past that will make you a social pariah or send your career on a trajectory from which it can never recover. So, take notes and enjoy the party!
