>My company canceled Christmas this year. OK, not the whole holiday, just the office’s holiday party. While I normally loathe this festivity, I do feel bad that it was canceled. I’ve worked through economic downturns before, but never was it so bad that the company I worked for completely canceled the holiday party. Scale it back, sure, but completely negate it? Never.
It’s a little bit scary. Excuse me while I go bury my head in the sand and try not to think about it.
>Our Christmas party sucks but I hope they don’t cancel the Christmas bonus checks.
>Why would they tell you in August that Christmas is canceled? Now you have four months to be depressed about it.
>The powers that be wanted to impress upon us how bad things are, I guess.
