British workers are embracing the festive season and all that comes with it, according to new research.

A survey of 1,003 UK workers carried out by interiors etailer Furniture123.co.uk, revealed that two thirds (67%) of British workers will decorate their office or place of work this Christmas.

A Christmas tree topped the poll as the festive decoration British businesses are most likely to display (47%), followed by fairy lights (37%), and tinsel on desks (27%).

The research quizzed Brits about the Christmas celebrations they will enjoy partaking in this Christmas, and found 58% will attend a work Christmas party or festive lunch with colleagues, while 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.

And, those who do embrace Christmas fun have started their celebrations early this year.

The research found that 22% of the UK workforce are already listening to Christmas music in the office, and 9% began playing Christmas music in October.

The data revealed that workplaces are more likely to embrace the festivities the further north you go; Scottish employees are most likely to embrace Christmas at work, while workers in Londoners are the least likely.
