To Whom It May Concern:
Please be advised that all Companies planning to dash through the snow in a one-horse open sleigh, going over the fields, and laughing all the way, are required to undergo a Risk Assessment, addressing the safety of open sleighs, and the use of alcoholic beverages by the people concerned.
This assessment must also consider whether it is appropriate to use only one horse for such a venture, particularly where there are multiple passengers.

Please note that permission must also be obtained in writing from landowners before their fields may be entered or traversed.

To avoid offending those not participating in celebrations, it is request that laughter is moderate only, and not deemed loud enough to be considered a noise nuisance, or cause any form of pollution.

Benches, stools and orthopaedic chairs are now available for collection by any shepherds planning or required to watch their flocks at night.

While provision has also been made for remote monitoring of flocks by CCTV cameras from a Centrally Heated Shepherd Observation Hut, all facility users are reminded that an emergency response plan must be submitted in writing to account for known risks to the flocks and participants.

The Angels of the Lord are additionally reminded that prior to shining his / her Glory all around, she / he must confirm that all shepherds are wearing appropriate Personal Protective Equipment to account for the harmful effects of UVA, UVB and the overwhelming effects of 'The Glory'.

Following last year's well publicised case, everyone is advised that EC legislation prohibits any comment with regard to the redness of any part of Mr R. Reindeer.
Further to this, exclusion of Mr R Reindeer from Reindeer Games will be considered discriminatory.
Disciplinary action will be taken against those found guilty of this offence.

While it is acknowledged that gift-bearing is commonly practiced in various parts of the world, particularly The Orient, everyone is reminded that the bearing of gifts is subject to Hospitality Guidelines and all gifts must be registered with the appropriate authorities.
This applies regardless of the individual, even royal personages.

It is particularly noted that direct gifts of currency or gold, are specifically precluded under provisions of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.

Further, caution is advised regarding other common gifts, such as aromatic resins that may initiate Allergic Reactions. or any form of Euphoria.

Finally, in the recent case of the infant found tucked up in a manger without any crib for a bed, Social Services have been advised and will be acting shortly.

Merry Christmas,
