Enter the Christmas Holiday Quiz for a chance to win a book from the Emerald bookstore
United Kingdom, December 2010 - To celebrate the advent of the festive season, Emerald Group Publishing is offering free online access to a number of holiday-related articles from 1-24 December at http://www.emeraldinsight.com/promo/xmas.html. Ranging from the earnest to the slightly less serious, the articles offer interesting insights into Christmas traditions, as well as practical advice for managers in the workplace.
The selected articles cover all those annual rituals associated with the festive holidays and investigate buying behaviour and consumer attitudes, from analysing letters written by children to Santa to understanding the meaning of “Christmas spirit”.
In times of such austerity, author Dianne Dean takes a light-hearted look at the cost of Christmas, with a humorous look at how the tax office could audit Santa. In a second viewpoint article, she calculates that adding up all the items in the popular song The Twelve Days of Christmas would cost a surprising $13,000!
Practical advice is offered in “Ensuring sweetness and light over the festive season” on how businesses can keep staff happy over the Christmas period, and still stay within the law.
The articles are freely available online from the 1-24th December 2010. To access the articles, visit http://www.emeraldinsight.com/promo/xmas.html
There is also the chance to enter the Emerald Holiday Quiz to win a book from the Emerald Bookstore.
