is the person throwing the celebration paying for the expenses? While it may seem excessive, if the office wants to celebrate or recognize something for someone, why not. However, if the person asks that it not be done, then the office should respect that. I do like the idea of once a month for birthdays. Promotions, however, should be more personal as they are personal achievements

While the Uncle sent the letter that some find inappropriate, we dont know the whole thing. Did he feel the need because parents arent as available as one would hope, is there something going on that he sees and thinks she may need help with but didnt want to come out and say it? I have given the same type of note or had the same talk with my nieces and nephews and yea they think Im too old to understand and thought maybe it was weird but in the end we have great relationships, very open and they do come to me.

To the uncle, all i have to say is creepy! You seriously felt the need to ask your niece to take your relationship to the next level. The is no level beyond uncle and niece you should go. Telling her that she can talk to you if she felt she had nowhere else to go is all you should have done. To the government employees doing all the partying I hope it isn't on government time!
