For some reason we are having our office Christmas party mid-January. It would be nice if they called it a New Years party. I wish all Christmas parties would become New Years Parties instead. I am not alone in this I am sure.
Supposedly attending a company sponsored Christmas party is up to the employee. But, is it really? No! Peer pressure forces one and all to celebrate Christmas whether they like it or not. It's not good for your career if you don't play along.

I have decided that I will from now on, respond to "Have a Merry Christmas" with "Have a Happy New Year" not "Happy Holidays"

Update, I was laid off May of 2009 (saw it coming, but still took it hard). I now have a MT.GOV job and lucky for me the people there are politically correct (a good thing) about xmas. One of my new co-workers and I put up a "christmas tree" but topped it off with Santa. So cool. No party, only a potluck during the lunch hour a few weeks ago. Again cool! As it should be.

Maybe they're waiting until mid-January because they'll be having layoffs around xmas? This way, too, not as many mouths to feed??

I don't mind so much. At least in LA, everyone says Holidays. I'm tired of this war on Holidays. I want my generic holidays back. Actually, I like Festivus. It is for the rest of us ;)

In your case; however, it makes sense to say New Year, since the party is closer to then. Or you can always go with "Happy Martin Luther King Day!"
