It’s hard to believe that Christmas is almost here once again! Tomorrow marks the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year. Exams are winding down for those in school, and last-minute shoppers will soon be filling the stores to scrounge for the leftover items to give as gifts.
As for me, I just finished running a study, so I have some data to analyze, which makes me happy. That’s not to say I won’t spend some time relaxing during the holiday season! But of course, as always, it will never be long enough. Soon I’ll be back at school for another term. Running research, marking assignments, taking classes…the wonderful cocoon of academia. But I’ll be sure to enjoy the time spent with my family this Christmas.
Whatever holiday you are celebrating this season (Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Winter Solstice, Newtonmas, or even Festivus!), I wish you and those you love a very wonderful and happy holiday season. Enjoy the time shared with others, the celebration of new life, and the wonderful spirit of giving. All the best, and happy holidays!
