Happy Friday! Only 20 more days until Christmas! Since it’s Friday we have some more guest etiquette tips for you!
Holiday Party Planning Tip 10
1. Be on time. Showing up too early will put your host/hostess out. They will be trying to wrap up the last minute touches, or likely getting themselves ready. Being unreasonably late is just as bad as it tells your hosts that their event isn’t of high importance to them.
2. Dress up. You will have to factor in what you should wear based on where the party is being held. Just because you are attending a party in someone’s home, does not mean that you shouldn’t dress to impress. Look your best, the hosts will appreciate you taking the time to look nice for their event.
3. It’s fine to say “Merry Christmas” or “Happy Chanukah.”
While “happy holidays” is never wrong, most etiquette experts agree that celebration-specific wishes are acceptable because they’re “simply greetings of the season,” says Randall. “Most people will respond in a positive way, even those who don’t celebrate these holidays.” But if anyone’s offended by your greeting, offer a quick apology and move on.
