Diary: Christmas comes 23 times to Pleon

PRWeek revels in the calls we receive about PROs' amusing antics at Christmas parties - but not, perhaps, at getting freebies promoting parties from which we have been excluded.

The arrival of a chocolate advent calendar was certainly appreciated by those of us with a sweet tooth.

However, we couldn't help but feel left out at Pleon's (formerly Brodeur Worldwide) declaration at the top of the calendar that it was 'having 23 Christmases this year... and many more around the world' (along with a guide to the places in Europe where seasonal parties are planned).

Pleon CEO Geoff Beattie explains that the parties are designed primarily for staff and clients (and clients' guests) and insists no schadenfreude was intended, adding: 'I'm sure our clients wouldn't mind us having a bit of fun.'

If you're going to tell us about it, though, it would have been nice to have been invited along for a mince pie or two.
