Looking to seal the deal with a colleague you have a crush on this festive season?
You’re not alone because nearly one million Brits are heading to their Christmas party in the hope of becoming closer to a colleague they fancy, according to a new study.
And it seems they may be in luck because two million Brits have admitted to hooking up with a colleague at the December event.
Of the 11 million people heading to events this week, those aged between 25 to 34 are the most likely to get lucky, with a presumptuous six per cent even considering booking a hotel room to continue the festive flirtations.
Christmas is just around the corner, and with it comes the opportunity for a drunken fumble at the office Christmas party with that someone special from HR – after so many exchanged glances over the photocopier and in disciplinary hearings, it’s basically a foregone conclusion by this point, right? Definitely! Especially if you believe reports in the Daily Mail recently.
Although, that said, it’s worth having a quick look at the company behind this valuable Christmas party poll:
A spokesperson from Hotels.com mobile app, who carried out the survey, said: ‘After working longer hours and being more careful with spending over the year, it’s understandable that hard-working Brits want to let their hair down and the Christmas party is the perfect opportunity for this to happen.
‘But while it’s fine to indulge, if you do find yourself getting into an embarrassing situation, having a phone handy can help get you away quickly and easily – from booking a cab to finding a hotel at the click of the button – so you don’t need to worry about explaining yourself to your colleagues the next day!’
