The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has announced that in order to give their minority Christian community which comprises of only foreign workers a sense of belonging, Christmas will be celebrated as an official holiday this year. In a televised address to the nation, King Salman had this to say:

"It is with great pleasure that I announce that for this year only our minority Christian population who are here on temporary work visas in our wonderful country will be allowed to celebrate Christmas. That said, there are certain conditions which come with this announcement. There will be no religious gatherings, no reading of the bible, no displays of Nativity scenes, no Christmas trees, no wearing of Santa Claus outfits, no over-eating, no consumption of alcoholic drinks, no singing of Christmas Carols or publicly wishing people Merry Christmas and no hanging up of Christmas wreaths. If you want to give a gift to a family member, friend or loved one, make sure that the wrapping paper is a plain colour and that there is nothing printed on it that is synonymous with Christmas. And please note that you can only let your children play with their toys indoors. Anyone caught breaking these rules will be subjected to the severest of punishments which can only be meted out in this country. We the Caliphate sincerely hope that you take full advantage of this wonderful gesture of Yuletide generosity and remember that there will be absolutely no excuses for anyone reaching late for work on December 26th. They will be promptly fired and deported."

Adequate write up, but marred by superficial errors that make the majority of it barely readable.
