Due to circumstances beyond the control of the elves and reindeer, I have found it necessary to deliver one of your gifts a bit early this Christmas.
To ensure that you do not forfeit this gift, the following rule is immediately in place:
You are forthwith and hereby forbidden to look upon the front porch of your house until Christmas morning. This includes, but is not limited to, prohibition against: looking out of the window in your dining room; gazing toward your front porch as you drive along the county road in front of your property; gazing toward your front porch as you drive along your drive way; walking in your yard beyond the side of your house facing your flower garden; walking anywhere in your front yard; walking anywhere in your front pasture; and any and all possible situations not covered here that might allow you to gaze upon your aforementioned gift.
Your cooperation is appreciated. Merry Christmas!!!
