I have already received your invitation letter. I am very thankful to you for this offer. Unluckily, I am unable to visit you this holiday since I will be working overtime during the period. As you might know, I have been promoted to a manager’s position recently. I am now managing a very important project which was given to my company last month. This project plays a significant role in the development of this company since this is a government project worth more than a million dollars and it is also about the reputation of my company. Hence, I have to make sure the project can be finished on time by working through this holiday. By the way, I also want to inform you that I am going to get married in March. I hope you can come here and spend your valuable time with us. I look forward to seeing you here soon.
