Plenty of Room at Inn for Mary and Joseph

Heh... a London hotel is offering a free room to couples with given names "Mary" and "Joseph."

"We are trying to make up for the hotel industry not having any rooms left on Christmas Eve 2004 years ago," said hotel manager Sandy Leckie. Well, Sandy, it was actually 2008 years ago (or 2007, if you don't believe the Year Zero existed), and it wasn't Christmas Eve (Christmas didn't exist yet, and there's no way the shepherds were sleeping outdoors in winter anyway... Jesus was probably born in the spring), but otherwise it's a nice sentiment I suppose. :)

If you really care about knowing what that all means, you either know the code already, or you can get it decoded for you here.
