Happy Holidays Amanda! Well, almost. I am writing you because I am totally freaking out. This will be my first Christmas Party at the Image Factory. I so don’t want to screw it up. I wanna make a good impression. Do you have any advice? Help!

Dear Miss Knots,
Fear not. Got you covered hun. I am going to give you a little advice that will surely help you make this year's office party a memorable one.
First things first, remember, you work for a “creative” communications company so having fun is rule #1. Besides, fun is what a holiday party is supposed to be about.
With that in mind, here are a few basic dos and don’ts:
1. Get your hands on a couple Xanax. Take them right before you start to primp for the event. That should gently take the edge off.
1. Don’t worry about cost of the dress. Simply plan on taking it back.
Lastly, come Monday, bring a box to work. Trust me on this. You’re going need it to carry your stuff.
Cheers and Happy Holidays,
PS Seriously, show up to the party politely late. Make an appearance. Smile. Have dinner with you closest colleagues and trade small talk. Then, graciously thank your host and GO HOME EARLY. Come Monday, you won’t need the box.
