Posted this earlier on another thread but realized that it may require more crowdsourcing/ other people might be in a similar pickle.

I have a weird Christmas bonus related question: I started a new job just around 4 months ago. When I got hired, the HR rep apologized for the low salary ( it is pretty low for being in a large city) but mentioned that there would be a nice little "bump" at Christmas. She offered this information, I didn't ask at all. No mention of it since. Should I email the woman and ask about it? I know that might be a bit of a faux pas, but I feel weird about saying nothing because she specifically mentioned it to get me to take the job. I should add, I don't have to interact with this woman on a regular basis at all, because the company is pretty large and she's in HR.
