The survey of 1,003 workers found that businesses are most likely to display a Christmas tree (47%), followed by fairy lights (37%) and tinsel on desks (27%).

When it comes to Christmas celebrations, 58% will attend a work Christmas party or festive lunch with colleagues, and more than a third (35%) will listen to Christmas music in the office.

More than a quarter (26%) will wear a Christmas jumper to work.

Mark Kelly, marketing manager at Furniture123.co.uk said: “It’s fantastic to see the number of businesses that are embracing the festive season with music, parties and Christmas jumpers.

“It’s understandable that in some places of work, decorating the office or wearing a Christmas jumper isn’t an option, but there are a number of ways to bring the festivities to the workplace which everyone can get involved in.

“Christmas is a wonderful time of year, and has the ability to boost morale, so it’s good for companies to spread some cheer in the place where the majority of Britons spend most of their time.”
