Does your office let you decorate for the Holidays?

 We usually can't decorate our cubicles.   This year they are having a contest for decorating your cubicle.  They are giving 3 prizes --Visa cards 100, 75 and 50.  

I am not doing it.   I know others around me can't wait to start decorating. 

Have a wonderful day,




Charlotte

It changes every year.  Sometimes we can, sometimes we can't, sometimes we have limitations on how much we can do.  Where I sit now is kind of tucked away where almost no one else goes so we don't usually participate in any decorating contests.

We are doing a door decorating contest.  I can't wait to do mine.  I'm going to do the dollar store this weekend to get some materials.

I wish I could. I asked last year about putting up clear lights or some plain silver tinsel. I was told it might offend someone...smh

Yes! Our boss encourages it. He even lets us dress up for Halloween as long as its work friendly. We put our Christmas decor up Monday.

We have a small office. 9 of us in the building, each with separate rooms. Our plant manager owns a Christmas tree farm, so he usually brings us a Charlie Brown tree to put up :) That's all the more festive we get though. Unless you count decorating the kitchen with cookies and candy and popcorn and pies.

Our company puts up trees throughout all of our buildings, but I don't know if we have a cubey policy. I'm usually out of here by mid-December, so I wouldn't participate.

Yes.  Each area kind of does their own thing.  We are a private company, run by a Christian family, so all holidays are celebrated and decorated for.  All faiths are allowed to decorate.  We have Jewish, Muslim, Christian, and Jehovah Witnesses here.

In the office area, we can. In the warehouse, they are not allowed to. However, the social committee always decorates the training room since we will have a party there, and everyone is welcome to add their decorations to that room as well.

Nope.  We are not allowed.
