the only people who didn't get offers where i summered were those who missed a lot of social events. unless you are running to the bathroom every five minutes to shomit you should absolutely go.

there's a difference between not going to a firm christmas party and skipping a lot of events during the summer.

there is not.

bottom line: if you don't go to the firm christmas party, your offer's getting rescinded.  they don't CARE if you're thousands of miles away.

I'm going to your firm's Christmas party.

Seconded!  A lot of people weren't even INVITED to their firm's Christmas party.  Imagine being invited and then not attending.  Ha!

Go to the Christmas party, drink a mass quantity of some hard liquor you haven't drank ever/in a long time.  Then spend the remainder of the night aggressively hitting on best looking girlfriend/wife/daughter of the most senior partner who has a lady with him that fits your intoxicated "standards." Then if the partner says something to you, tell him numerous ways that you believe he can improve his firm and practice.  Do that and you're golden.

Be sure to make a big fuss about the Christmas party, too.  (Hello, Jews?!)  Don't forget to give them a long diatribe about political correctness and how this should be a Holiday party.  Then relate your Kwanza plans and how Christmas is such a fake, commercial holiday.
