Holiday parties are their own kind of beast. Different from birthday parties and other celebrations, the holiday party is unique in that it either involves your co-workers, your significant other's co-workers, family who you haven't seen in ages and/or people drunk on spiked eggnog.

'cause baby it's cold outside.
