You couldn't make it up

According to Brand Republic, budget hotel chain Travelodge is offering any couple with first names Joseph and Mary a free night's accommodation over the Christmas holiday!

The puff on the company website continues the, er, festive theme:

"Today's Mary and Joseph will stay in a spacious Travelodge family room which can also cater for a baby and a manger.

"A free car-parking space will be provided for the donkey and there are plenty of £29 rooms available for the shepherds and Wise Men to book."
No, no, please stop...

The Brand Republic story says there is a dedicated "microsite" for customers to sign up for the amazing deal. As far as we can tell it's actually an email address at head office.

Bah humbug!

I wonder if the free night is in the barn... err manger... out back?

Hope you are well Kevin. :)

Best, Heather

...and did the ad truly say a free night's stay over "Christmas," or did it offer a free night stay "for the holidays?"

Just curious. ;)
