Recap / The Office USS 2 E 10 Christmas Party

It's Christmas at Dunder Mifflin and the whole office is planning a party. Michael, the only one who received a Christmas bonus, buys an iPod for his Secret Santa recipient. This leads to a game of White Elephant/Yankee Swap, and a lot of hurt feelings. To make up for it, Michael defies company rules and buys alcohol for the party.

Air date: December 6, 2005.
