The office holiday party is that rare time of the year when colleagues can finally let their hair down and have relaxed, good cheer together. Delegate the organizational tasks for the big event according to the strengths of each co-worker's Sun sign, and have the best party -- ever!

ARIES
Aries is a natural leader, especially when it comes to fun and games! Have the Ram organize the party activities -- be it a round of charades or a tournament of Twister. Aries’ natural enthusiasm will get even the biggest humbug revved up and willing to participate.

TAURUS
Taurus is one of the most musical signs; it’s no wonder that some of the greatest singers, such as Barbara Streisand, were born under the sign of the Bull. Have Taurus select the music playlist and your party will have just the right tunes to get down and boogie.

GEMINI

High-living Gemini is the perfect Sun sign to designate as beverage coordinator. Leave it to the decadent-yet-curious Twins to create the most offbeat, enticing elixirs for your office festivities. No boring, conventional drinks allowed!

CANCER
If you're sick of parties where a bag of potato chips is all there is to munch on, then homey, nurturing Cancer is the perfect sign to put on food duty. From a yummy batch of cookies to warming comfort dishes, Cancer will be happy to organize a menu that will likely include many home-baked goodies.

LEO
Leave it to glamorous Leo to set -- and enforce -- the dress code. Every Lion knows that any dull, run-of-the-mill gathering can be heightened to a virtual soiree just by having people put a little effort into their outfits. Leo’s natural enthusiasm and style will persuade even the most casually dressed worker to vamp it up a bit for the event.

Someone needs to organize the actual organizing, so hopefully there's a control-freak Virgo to oversee everything and everyone. On-top-of-everything Virgo is also the perfect sign to put in charge of the more prosaic aspects of party planning, such as working out the budget and gathering money. An added plus: Virgo actually enjoys tidying up, so assign them to the cleanup crew.

LIBRA
Aesthetic Libra is the only sign that should ever be put in charge of decorations. Libra is both elegant and fun-loving, so they can strike the perfect balance between creating an atmosphere that is both party-hearty and chic. The only problem is that they have the tendency to go over budget, so keep a close eye on the purse strings.

SCORPIO

Close-lipped Scorpio is the perfect guardian of secrets, so what better sign to serve as the office’s Secret Santa? Whether having people pick names from a hat, or meticulously pairing up giving-and-receiving duos, Scorpio can be trusted to keep everything on the down-low, and won’t peak and divulge any names.

SAGITTARIUS

With so many parties vying for people’s attendance during the holiday season, it’s necessary to get your coworkers to actually show up. Enthusiastic Sagittarius is the perfect pep squad for the office party. Their marketing skills can actually transform the event from an awkward evening where attendance is seen as a duty, to a fun, exciting bash that is looked forward to.

CAPRICORN

Someone needs to make sure that things don’t get too out of hand, and conservative Capricorn is the perfect sign to put in charge of setting and enforcing the code of conduct. While most signs wouldn’t want to take on the mantle of killjoy, Capricorn is more than willing to set the rules.

AQUARIUS
Aquarians are a bit flakey and absent-minded, so you don’t want to delegate any tasks to them that are too crucial to the evening’s success. Their sign rules electricity, so you may want to have them on-call as the party’s tech crew, who sets up the lighting and sound equipment, as well as troubleshoots any technical glitches that occur or … video-records the evening!

PISCES

Artistic, amiable Pisces is the perfect sign to design the invitations and keep track of RSVPs. Their friendly nature will remind others of the party, without seeming too pushy, while their inventiveness will manifest an invite that is one-of-a-kind. If you want to choose a theme for the party, this imaginative sign will think up a unique angle.
