MercatorNet update ~ Week ending 16 December 2005
http://www.mercatornet.com
Hi,
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from the staff of MercatorNet! This week's issue includes a couple of features on how to celebrate in view of the controversy in the US over Christmas greetings.
Well be taking a break over Christmas ourselves, so our next issue will be on the weekend of New Years Eve -- make sure to check your InBox as soon as possible after the revelry is over!

Finally, consider giving your friends and relatives a lasting Christmas present: MercatorNets weekly reminder. Send us their email addresses and we will invite them to sign up on your recommendation. (We dont spam!) Some readers have given us dozens of names and nearly all of their contacts happily signed up. We would
really appreciate your support.
Cheers, Michael Cook
Editor
