I love this time of year, before getting into the start of the New Year

Categories: Verity

I love this time of year, after Christmas and before everyone is back in the office.

Here are some of the reasons:

  1. There are several statutory holidays.
  2. The Christmas rush is over, and people are less stressed.
  3. Boxing Day sales.
  4. Many people are off work, with time to relax and catch up with friends.
  5. There is still an opportunity to get hyped for New Year's Eve, especially if you're in Scotland with Hogmannay.
  6. I like the opportunity to go into the office on the days between the statutory holidays; it's less frantic, and you can get things done with less interruption with many people away.
  7. It's a minimal number of days to take off work if you want to get away, and visit family, friends, or just other places.
  8. In NZ it's the start of summer vacations.
  9. Towns are quieter, with many people on holiday.

What do you like about this time of year?
