Dear readers,

Christmas is not always a happy season in the workplace. Retail workers have to spend ninety days listening to the same five Christmas carols on repeat, offices force you to partake in a secret Santa, and all the managers have booked themselves off so you have to work through the holidays and miss your family.

In solidarity with those who have to work over the holidays, we’ve rounded up twenty-five stories about Christmas in the workplace. Take a break and enjoy!
