    Swedish...Norwegian...close enough :-)

    Lets see:

    Besides the "I [heart] cum":

    "We would like to let as many trees as possible live - even after Christmas!
    To reduce the use of paper, we have decided to not send any Christmas cards this year.
    Instead, we will with these lines wish all of our customers, distributors and other persons of concern a true
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year"

    According the first comment on the Engrish Funny site, it is from a major healthcare provider. A quick Google.se search on "cum" brings up C.U.M. (from the Italian "Collezione uomo moderno") Clubwear (designer clothing) and Club Queer, a (surprise!) gay nightclub.

    Cum has no particular meaning in Swedish that I can find and means cum / sperm / ejaculate when used in Swedish as well (borrowed from English).

    Nope. It's from a Swedish Real Estate company - Locum (from the latin obviously, since they're real estate). Their company logo is spelled all in lower case.

    Just saw that on the comments section as well. Swedish radio picked up on it, so it's probably become a national snicker.

    Locum's current Christmas greeting is pretty tame (though it includes a note that they are donating to UNICEF this Christmas in lieu of sending Christmas cards).

    Thank you, Nick.

    I see the heart is in place of the "o" in locum....and it just looks funny in English.
