Happy Holidays Ho Ho Ho!

As usual, around this time of year, the #CSR Reporting Blog wishes all its followers Happy Holidays. I think I said it best last year:

This is a time to reflect on the joys of life and the joys of publishing Sustainability Reports. A time to be merry and indicator-driven. This is a time to eat well and edit well, engage with friends and dialogue with all stakeholders, think about what's important to you and call it material, recommit to your higher purpose and approve your reporting budget.

Usually the #CSR Reporting Blog finds an innovative and humorous way to spread holiday cheer. But there is a limit to the number of alternative ways we can find to say Merry Christmas, Seasons Greetings, Have A Cool Yule and such other appropriate expressions. So imagine my delight to discover, via  an online dictionary, that one can simply wish people Ho Ho Ho!

So, to all the #CSR Reporting Blog readers and everyone working in the #CSR and #Sustainability field to help make our world a better place, I wish you a:
