christmas parties revelry in recession story By johanna mc Directions production manager Thomas Johnson said Christmas is a great time to get involved in corporate social responsibility. “Why not meld team-building and a Christmas celebration? Get the staff together and build bicycles for children or take a day out to renovate or paint a half-way house,” he said.

They can look expensive but can fit into a low budget and still be imaginative and a lot of fun.” And after a tough year like the one we are experiencing, your guests will be even more eager to let their hair down.
