‘Tis the season for presents, nog, buffets of baked goods, and filling your calendar with more social events than there are actually days in December — many of which turn out to be equal parts awesome and awkward. Embarrassing office shenanigans, nights you don’t quite remember, guests who hog the cheese platter, trying to fit into your pants after you’ve hogged the cheese platter… yeah, we’ve been there, too. But you gotta still love it all, right?

As you head out to celebrate (or plan your own shindig), we wish you a social scene free of these holiday party fails, all guaranteed to kill the spirit of the season.
