Work holiday parties are slowly coming back this year after the number of offices holding festive fêtes fell steadily over the last few years. Only 74 percent hosted parties last year, but this year the number is up to 91 percent.
Most people are excited when their office holiday parties have an open bar. But those employees do not work for The Lanier Law Firm.
The firm, which has offices in Houston, New York, Los Angeles and Palo Alto, had country music superstars Tim McGraw and Faith Hill perform at their company holiday gathering last weekend, The Houston Chronicle reported.
The firm is known for its elaborate Christmas parties — at the party in Houston, the country music power couple performing their love duet, “Like We Never Loved At All,” before splitting off and performing a solo set each, singing many of their big hits for over an hour.
Attendees were certainly living like they were dying as the party also offered “carnival rides, inflatable playground playthings and a food tent filled with fajitas and barbecue.”
And, as if that were not enough, the former vice president of Guatemala and a world-renowned heart surgeon spoke at the party, which raises funds for his mission to supply and staff health clinics in impoverished countries.
