“To be sensitive to those who don’t celebrate Christmas, we won’t post photos of trees or Santa Claus on our welcome board.
Gift exchange presents will be collected under the lobby Christmas tree.”
This is my response to Trifecta’s weekly challenge: Charles Dickens, in A Christmas Carol, wrote “There is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humour.” We are giving you exactly 33 words to make us laugh out loud and spread some festive cheer.
The challenge is open to everyone, so if you have a laugh to share, add your link to Trifecta’s site!
Now, I don’t know if my response is exactly “laugh out loud” funny, but I happen to find irony quite humorous. Last year, my office made a big deal of being sensitive to those who don’t celebrate Christmas. The person who selects seasonal photos to display on the TV screen behind the reception desk was asked to not include photos of Santa or Christmas trees in the selection, however there were two decorated trees in the office! (And they said a prayer before the meal at our holiday party.) Gotta love failed attempts at political (or religious) correctness 🙂
Had they actually sent out a memo, it would be framed and hung in my cubicle.
Have a beautiful week. Laugh much and don’t let the stress of the season find you!
