You know, when I first read this it never occurred to me that the Christmas Party was late. I just thought it was about those weird people who like to celebrate Christmas in July (you know, because it's better to eat roast turkey and Christmas pudding when the weather's cold). There's quite a movement of such people in Australia; they call the celebration Yulefeast. It's only now at 0430 on a hot late spring night in Sydney that it occurs to me that if you live in Prague Christmas in July would be completely pointless because it's actually cold and snowy for Christmas in December.
