Happy Holidays from the Department of Government

Happy Holidays from the Department of Government!

Before you go home for the holiday break, the Department of Government would like to crave your momentary indulgence in order to discharge a by no means disagreeable obligation which has, over the years, become more or less established practice in departmental service as we approach the terminal period of the year — calendar, of course, not financial — and submit to you, with all appropriate deference, for your consideration at a convenient juncture, a sincere and sanguine expectation — indeed confidence — indeed one might go so far as to say hope — that the aforementioned period may be, at the end of the day, when all relevant factors have been taken into consideration, susceptible to being deemed to be such as to merit a final verdict of having been by no means unsatisfactory in its overall outcome and, in the final analysis, to give grounds for being judged, on mature reflection, to have been conducive to generating a degree of gratification which will be seen in retrospect to have been significantly higher than the general average.

Or, in other words, Happy Holidays.
