For the (probably few) operators who are in the business of registering
and parking names under the NZ (New Zealand) ccTLD, we have just been
notified that the NZ registry, Domainz, is closing down for Christmas --
no modifications to the zone files until 6 January.

Does anybody know of _any_ other TLD registry that is closing down for
Christmas? I'd be interested to hear, if so.
