Our annual Xmas Jokestravaganza

Do They Know It’s Christmas?
Yes we do! Welcome to The Pickering Group’s merry post, the last for 2020 – and it’s a cracker.
Simply Having a Wonderful Christmastime!
We hope you have a safe and happy holiday season, however you spend it. Chasing the ultimate shade of golden brown, on a turkey or your tan; fighting for the best spot in the campground for the Maui van that you insist calling a Tiny Home; or picking sticky chunks of candy cane out of the good rug til New Years. It’s all Christmas, and it’s all good. Apart from the rug, that’s a write off. 
Last Christmas
Last year we started our tradition of providing you with cracker jokes that you can read aloud to your loved ones around the dinner table until they politely ask you to stop. They’re puns! They’re vaguely business related! They’re better than the paper hats! (note: please print this post and make your own paper hat as none will be provided).
Traditions are sacred, so without further ado let’s crack on:
