      None for me. Our yearly bonuses always come after the new year.

        I am getting a cheeseburger on Friday at our Christmas party at a local restaurant. We needed to pre-order since it is a large party. Some of my co-workers went with the 1/3 lb burger, but I am not letting the company off the hook that cheap. 1/2 lb Angus burger for me. And I upgraded from house potato chips to french fries. Merry Christmas to me!!!!

          In past years, we always got profit sharing checks around this time of year. But, I got my big profit sharing check in February when the company finally sold. So, with a new parent company, I have no idea what, if anything, to expect.

          I did cash out my rewards points from our company recognition program a couple of weeks ago for a $100 Amazon card. I could have done that any time, but it was nice to have it towards my holiday shopping.

              Your Christmas bonus is called a pension :-).

                The pension is a company match. (Now if you have a match and a pension... )

                  No such thing were my husband works. We usually get a company-wide bonus in March, but that is our vacation money. No bonus, no vacation.

                    We receive our bonus in two installments - one in the summer and one this time of year. On an annual basis, it comes to about 15% of gross salary.

                        Our work party is on the 17th. Last year I received a $3k bonus.

                          We usually get $500. Not sure when that gets paid out though.

                            My company is splurging this year. Our Christmas party/bonus is a 3 day affair this year. Today was donuts. Tomorrow will be bagels, and then the lunch on Friday.

                            My lunch with 20% tip factored in will come to $16.08. The bagel & donut shouldn't be $.75 each at the most, bringing my total bonus to $17.58!

                              As Grandma always said, it's better than a kick in the pants

                              We have a Christmas party but the food isn't that great and they always put everyone on the spot forcing them to brag about how great it is to work there. So it comes at a price so to speak. If the food was a little better tasting it might be worth it
