Which seems a shame as it's usually the only time when a business actually turns round and says thank you to all those hard working individuals who have helped them turn over another year's worth of profit.

But amidst any sorrow you may be experiencing should your boss declare the Yuletide celebrations cancelled spare a little pity for the City hedge fund owner who recently took nine members of staff to a London club for a Christmas drink.
