Who wouldn’t be when most have received their bonuses & perks and when everyone’s favorite Christmas carols incessantly play over the airlanes and inside the shopping malls.
As Christmas Day nears, everybody seems to be in a mad rush for last- minute shopping and for the lucky & privileged set, it’s the time to hie off to exotic and foreign destinations for their annual family holidays.

On the debit side, the traffic situation has been getting horrendous and not a few motorists have blown not only their horns but their tops as well. Lighten up folks. Brace yourselves for the traffic mayhem, brave the kilometric queues at the malls and do mind your battle with the bulge if you cannot resist the calorific indulgence the next couple of weeks.
On a personal note, life has seemed to be better and brighter. Setbacks and drawbacks were made bearable with the presence & support of a few but reliable friends. Even with all the uncertainties & the negativity, I try to be more grateful because it is gratitude that makes you acquire peace of mind, tranquility and clarity.
Tis the season to be merry! What better way to cap off a most memorable year than celebrating it in a most meaningful way.
