Merry Christmas - Subject to Terms and Conditions

First published: 17th December 2010

I've received a message from a society I'm a member of, but I can't tell you what it was about because of the stern warning at the end:

I will say that it was related to a certain popular mid-winter religious festival. I am sure there must be a vitally-important reason why I must not tell you about their greeting.
