5 Reasons Why You Should Not Dread Holiday Parties

It is that time of year when holiday party invitations start rolling in the mail.  For some, the enormous amount of holiday invitations and events can become overwhelming.  The reality is, we are all obligated to attend certain holiday parties, but instead of approaching the upcoming party season with dread, consider the following 5 reasons why you should look forward to, rather than dread, attending holiday events:

(1)        Everyone needs a night out.  Regardless of your profession, everyone needs a break from reality to go out, get dressed up, and socialize with others, whether it be on a personal or professional level.  Instead of dreading the idea of going to a holiday party, try to focus on the fact that a night out never hurt anyone, make the best of it.  At the end of the day, it is a holiday party, it can’t be that bad.

 (2)        Go pick-up that must-have dress or suit.  This is a great time, and a great excuse, to go out and treat yourself to something new to wear to a special holiday event you plan to attend.  This eliminates the concern of figuring out what to wear at the last-minute, and also gives you a chance to look forward to dressing up for a fun night out.  If anyone says they do not occasionally need that, they are lying.

(3)        Business networking opportunity.  Unlike year-round galas, luncheons, and similar types of formal business functions, a holiday party offers a more relaxed professional atmosphere to network with current and potential business clients.  It is also a great opportunity to get to know others in the community in a less formal setting.  Make sure to bring enough business cards to all holiday events, you never know who you will meet.

(4)        Catch-up with friends/family.  Take this holiday event as an opportunity to be around large groups of your close friends and family in one setting.  As a young professional, it is difficult to balance a healthy professional and personal life.  This is your chance to make amends to those friends and family members you rain-checked on throughout the year because something came up at work or at home.

(5)        Do Not Overcommit, Be selective.  I am not by any means suggesting that you turn into an automated yes-man when deciding on the holiday events you plan to attend this upcoming season.  You will surely lose your sanity if you overexert yourself with commitments to holiday events.

If you approach the upcoming holiday party season with these considerations in mind, you should have no reason to dread your holiday party or event.  Good luck and Happy Holidays!
