The majority of Canadians love Christmas gatherings with their families, but it’s an entirely different scenario when it comes to the office holiday party — even though most workers attend them — according to a new survey.

While 92 per cent look forward to family gatherings, only 55 per cent said they like office Christmas parties and 33 per cent said they dislike celebrating the holidays with co-workers.

Workers in Alberta were most likely to enjoy an office Christmas party while Quebec staff seemed least attached to them.
