Why do we do it? Do you work in between Christmas and New Year?

Getting up this morning, whilst finding my socks I was pondering why some businesses open in between Christmas and New Year and some businesses close completely.

I know that traditionally factories and building contractors etc stop work for the whole period. Some businesses shops, pharmacies, doctors surgeries etc have to open but I work in an office and most of my clients are businesses and factories that are shut until 6th January but still I go to work.

I won’t admit to being the most productive during this period.  I just seem to be tidying up, catching up with work that I kept putting off until another day and generally trying to get ahead with next years work.  Today, I spent the whole day on one thing which apparently is supposed to make my life easier and be more standardised (ooh how I hate that word).

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those people that do work over Christmas and New Year to keep our country running and that’s why we go to work, to keep the cogs of this country turning 🙂 So to all of you that are working over the New Year,  Thank you and I wish you all a very happy new year. Regards xx Elaine
