Dear Editor, What a shame that Richard McComb is ‘Feeling the festive pinch’ (Post, Dec 23). It is a sad indictment of how some people view Christmas when he bemoans the fact that people in the world of public relations have not flooded the office with the usual Christmas gifts.
There are people out here who still regard Christmas as a time for giving not for moaning about what they have and haven’t received. There are even those who regard Christmas as a time for celebrating the greatest gift of all -– the birth of Jesus Christ. Making such a statement probably guarantees that this letter will not be printed because of the risk of offending someone!
It did strike me that the lack of gifts in the office could also be because the Post is now a weekly rather than a daily – people in public relations realise that any coverage that their company gets will be less effective.
From a reader who misses his daily.
