Why Do Public Relations Professionals Love Lists?

Public Relations Professionals Love ListsOnce again it is the end of the year, and as I stated in a blog post last year, it is the “the fun time when we in the public relations industry enjoy making lists.” And we love reading lists, too! So this year instead of making my own list from the HMA Public Relations team I wanted to share a fun list from Laura Hale Brockway (and no, not because we share the same last name) on PR Daily called “Holiday puns every communicator should avoid.”

What are the top seven puns every public relations professional should avoid?

  • Yule love this
  • Fleece Navidad
  • Let’s get elfed up
  • Brace your elves
  • You’ll love our new Santa-tizer
  • All I want for Christmas is ewe
  • Don’t be shellfish this Christmas

A few on the list you may need to avoid depending on who you’re talking to, but most are “pun-tastic” (I mean who doesn’t like saying “let’s get elfed up”) and I will for sure incorporate them into my conversations over the next week.
Which of the above would you avoid? Why? Any other holiday favorites you want to share?
