The office rumor mills can take another turn around festive season. Here are a few tips on how to keep yourself from being the target.

To begin with, don't reveal too much about yourself as several workers have admitted to revealing too much information and embarrassing themselves at the Christmas bash, the Daily Express reported.

According to the poll conducted by Google, 35 percent of managers or company directors have been shown a naughty photo of a colleague or even been told of someone's "embarrassing illness" or sexual fantasy.

About 40 percent colleagues said that they had to listen to a colleague drone on about their office crush or one night stand.

Several workers admitted to hearing about a scandal at the festive party and felt they had found out too much.
