Every year is like a merry go round; we do it all over again. To many people, particularly in this country, Xmas is a holy day and for others it can be whatever they want it to be. It's also a time for families getting together and even contacting friends we may have not spoken to for a while. At work we temporarily drop the formalities of class, rank, position, grade or titles and speak to each other on parity.
This time of the year gives us a chance to prepare for new starts and think about what we need to improve ourselves in the upcoming year. Whilst this is going on, people like me, see another side to this and have to work right through the festive season. I lose a bit of contact with the world during this period (except for a few text messages from close friends). The only celebration I have is the people I work with and when the clock hits midnight on New Year’s Eve, I shake hands with the closest person to me at the time!
I wish everyone a very MERRY XMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR including family and friends all over the world.
