I’ve always found the week between Christmas and New Year rather curious.
Depending on which country you live in, you may find heaps of people going on leave. In the UK and Australia, this is shopping week. There’re big sales to take advantage of (Or do you think perhaps, just maybe, that it’s the shops taking advantage of you?)
Some offices may close entirely this week. Those who at work may be in for a quiet time (thank goodness!). There’s less to do. It’s an opportunity for long lunches or long chats over coffee with colleagues.
It’s an odd in-between time between two major celebrations. One religious. The other secular. Although even the Christian one is celebrated by those of other religions for it’s morphed, for so many people, into a cultural (and very commercial) event.
After all, who doesn’t want presents?
So as I sit alone in my office… I’d like to wish you a Happy and Merry In-Between Week!
