Social and Savvy: Skills for Holiday Parties

Skills for Holidays

Sometimes being social at a holiday get together with friends and co-workers may not be your strong suit, and that’s okay. Making small talk isn’t always fun, but there are other ways to still be social without having to exert all of your energy keeping the conversations going. Instead of talking the entire night focus on getting people a refill on their drinks and food, using your e cig to take a break, doing activities such as games as opposed to talking. It’s okay to enjoy a holiday event without talking the entire time. Just be you and everything else will fall into place.

Engage in Games

Usually there are always games at a party and if there are not, why not recommend to others that you play some? Games are a great way to take the focus on party gossip and instead engage in fun activities that create a lot of laughter. Plus games will allow you to get to know another person instead of engaging in long conversations. You can be social without figuring out what to talk about the entire time at the social gathering.

Enjoy E-cigs at Parties

E-cigarettes are growing in popularity and are much more socially acceptable than traditional cigarettes. As a smoker you may feel that enjoying a cigarette would be nice with your food and drink. This is especially true when you’re in a social setting. An e-cig may also help you enjoy the company more if you’re an introvert. You might want to ask the party host if you can enjoy an e-cig before actually doing it, but they should have no problem with it. A 21st Century e-cig is a great alternative in public places. If affordability is an issue you can apply a 21st Century Smoke coupon to try e-cigs for yourself.

Put on a Holiday Movie

If you’re good friends with the hosts of the party sometimes it’s nice to have a movie on in one of the rooms in the house. This provides people a way to take a break from all of the social activity and it also adds to the festive cheer. Recommend that they put on a funny holiday film that everyone will enjoy. When the movie is playing you may find yourself connecting with someone you didn’t know well prior just because you both share a love for the same film. A holiday movie is another great ice breaker which will make socializing more enjoyable.
