Dear SIT Members,

December is here and we have entered the last month of the year. For me, it seems like this month holds the biggest oppositions and transitions of them all. In the Northern hemisphere, the days have become dark and cold, while the sun shines on the Southern hemisphere from the “highest“ point in the sky. For us who follow the Christian holidays, Christmas is fast approaching and should be a joyful holiday, spent with family and friends. However, be careful that this holiday does not turn into a stressful time, in which shopping, last-minute-end-of-the-year-work, and a schedule packed with social gatherings, overshadows the magic of this time.

If Halloween, Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Christmas had not been stressful enough, there is always New Year Eve, falling on the last day of December. The conclusion of one year and the beginning of the next, makes for a natural time of reflection on the year that has passed, and on the path of the next. If this path does not feel like (the Australian) summer, you might want to get inspired by the sun and the coming solstice, and change direction.

Denmark (where I live) has become famous for the word “Hygge”. This word can be translated to ‘having a nice time in a cozy atmosphere.’ It is especially associated with this time of the year, where we (due to the cold weather and the short days), gather inside to a cup of tea or hot chocolate, often in the light from candles or the heat from a fireplace. I will encourage everybody to remember this Danish word, and spend this holiday, not caught up in work, but by “hygge” with your family and friends.

I wish you all a wonderful (and “hyggelig”) holiday season and a happy New Year!
