With all the focus that advertising places on gifts, food and decorations, it’s easy to forget what Christmas is really about. There are very few occasions in the year when we have the opportunity and the time to just sit back and spend quality time with our family, but Christmas is one of them.
For some, getting the extended family together in one place can be stressful, but it’s important not to get too swept up in the planning and fuss, and instead to just enjoy one of the few opportunities you get to really bond with your kids, your parents and the others that you’re close to.
When we’re busy working all year, we’ll often make a conscious effort to book some time off for a school play, a birthday celebration or to help a loved one through sickness, but we don’t always get the time to just appreciate one another. That’s what the Christmas season brings us – a few days in the year set aside just for family.
Switch off from work, switch off from stress and focus on what Christmas is all about – spending time with the most important people in our lives. That’s how we’ll be spending our festive break.
Thank you to all our wonderful customers for sending work our way in 2016. We’ll be back, well rested and inspired to make more great signs for you on Tuesday 3rd January. Until then, have a very Merry Christmas and we wish you all the best for 2017. We’ll see you there!
