Office workers were eagerly counting down the minutes before clocking out on Friday as work parties kicked off the Christmas season.
In Sydney, hordes of men and women ditched their corporate dresses and suits for more festive attire – dressing up in everything from leprechauns and KISS rock stars to Robin and David Hasselhoff.
Some workers embraced the Christmas cheer donning Santa hats, antlers, quirky chimney headgear – and even giant inflatable reindeers while enjoying celebratory bubbles.
