Diary: Thank you, but a simple card would have done

Campaign would like to thank all of you out there for sending us your compliments of the season.

However, we could have managed without the card from Delaney Lund Knox Warren & Partners. When opened, it boomed out an in-your-face rendition of We Wish You a Merry Christmas recorded by the entire agency.

And what was WCRS thinking of with its "limited edition snowman by Scandinavia's top snow sculptor, Erd Derfenberg"? By the time it reached our desks, the dirty snow had melted and the carrot nose disintegrated. We were left with a plastic bag containing what looked like nuclear effluent.

A more enduring festive greeting came from Rainey Kelly Campbell Roalfe/Y&R - a card featuring a Christmas tree topped by a flashing light. A fortnight later, the thing still hasn't switched off!

And why did OMD send everyone a reprint of its 2006 calendar having said the original version was "flawed"? We can't spot the mistake and OMD won't say what it is.
