And a Merry Christmas to All!
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6
We’ve gotten down to that point in the year where business clearly takes a back seat to Christmas and Hanukkah celebrations and New Year’s Eve plans.
It’s that time where there isn’t much point in doing media outreach, unless maybe you’re in retail or other holiday-centric industries and you’ve got urgent last-minute news. Those of us who do spend much time in the office over the next couple of weeks will be primarily wrapping up 2017 and doing some planning and strategizing for 2018.
We hope that this coming year will be a good one for business for all of us, and for successfully getting our messages out there to customers, clients, and the people who influence them.
Basically, the only thing that really needs saying now is Merry Christmas! To our clients and to everyone we contact regularly, we wish you the best for the season. It is our wish that all among us can concentrate on what matters most at this time of year. That would be faith, family, and friends.
As much time as we may spend buying “things” for each other, in the end those things don’t really matter. What endures is the love we share, along with the fond memories of the time we have spent with the people we love. We hope that as individuals and as a nation that we can concentrate on that.
We hope also that we can focus on why this season is so special: that one truly special birth that so changed the world and which has changed so many lives in the more than 2000 years since then. May His blessings be upon all of us.
