Time to erect the tree and hang the baubles

Yes, folks, it's that time of year again. The Post Team pack away their red marker pens and GuideML tutors and head for the drinks cabinet. Greebo stows her smiley - donuts in carefully designed parcels so they will stay fresh. Awix locks his film reels firmly in the safe. Shazz unpegs all the teabags hanging on the line and piles them neatly into the caddy ready for 2004. Deus gathers up all the scraps of paper with 'Announcements' scribbled in the top right-hand corner and forces them onto the Post spike. Regulars breathe a sigh of relief and try to erase the word 'deadline' which has been written in indelible ink on their hands. Yes, it's our annual holiday and we will be making the most of it!

We are not leaving you bereft, however. Apart from all the regulars and some special seasonally-flavoured items, there are plenty of challenges to keep you scratching your heads whilst we are gone. Look out for them in the extra 'Christmas Fun and Games' section.

Commiserations to Eeyore whose mosquito pen was pipped at the post by a collapsing bin in the Innovation Nation Final. Despite not winning the competition the future is looking bright and we wish them (!) all the best for this excellent invention.

We wish you all the very best at this time and will see you all again on the 8th January 2004.
