'Tis the season to start making a list and checking it — twice, perhaps. But don't just limit the festive cheer to your home. Bring the holly-jolly joy to the workplace with these fun, frugal, and fairly easy decoration ideas.

Hint: it's also a great team-building activity. Spend the afternoon with the team decorating the workplace, and take their spirit from ho-ho-glum to merry and bright.
