    We have a Christmas tree and a menorah in the lobby, but mostly we just put Santa hats on the skeletons

    I had a 'Charlie Brown' Christmas tree in my office, tropical style (decorated dead palm tree). It finally collapsed into a state of decay this summer.

    You should put some tinsel on the patients when you drive the bariatric van

    The other day the front desk ladies put up a full xmas tree. There are also a ton of actual presents around the tree but thats because every year lots of people in my office donate a bunch of toys to a local charity. Also the girls next to my desk took on the the responsibility of decorating my desk for the holidays since I'm a bit of a grinch.

    The ladies covered our lobby door in wrapping paper so as to resemble a giant present. I just put a little wreath over the glory hole in the bathroom.

    A new employee thought that our annual game of the 'Dirty Santa' gift exchange was really 'dirty', so she wrapped up a couple of tubes of pineapple flavored lube. She was adored by all.

    We have professional design team, so our front lobby tree is decorated with dozens of owls. It just weird. Everyone is perplexed and/or loathes it.

    I actually moved quite a bit of it already... one of my favorite tenants came down ready to sing and dance the "Goldmember" bit from Austin Powers...

    My office does not get decorated but there is Christmas tree in the lounge that the ladies decorate differently for just about every holiday, birthday, anniversary and successful bowel movement.

    I work in a cubical farm, so everyone decorates differently...We just hung up some ornaments from the ceiling...I wanted to put up a Festavus Pole but apparently that's offensive in the corporate world.

    My office has a tacky plastic christmas tree that's been standing in the corner for at least three years.

    Apart from that nothing.

    We have a directorate wide door decorating contest. Losers have to plan and execute the holiday party for the next year, a 350 person+ event at a large hotel. The boss (A 2 star general...) and his minions come round and judge all the doors in one afternoon. Having booze and candy on hand when they show up is a must...my boss is a big holiday guy and refuses to lose. He keeps the last years decorations on hand and makes new stuff each year.
    Fun, but kind of a p.i.t.a...

    We share the building with the police. Some how, its become a tacky light contest. The hallway looks like the red light district.

    I coil a turd in the shape of a Christmas tree on a random desk. L'chaim!
