Welcome December

December got its name from the Latin word decem (meaning ten) because it was originally the tenth month of the year in the Roman calendar, which began in March. The winter days following December were not included as part of any month. Later, the months of January and February were created out of the monthless period and added to the beginning of the calendar, but December retained its name.

December is a month of reflection. Another year is coming to an end. Was it a good year, what could we have done to make it better, what new things did we learn, which opportunities did we grab, did we make sure our last year’s plans came to life?

And talking about plans: December is also the time to make new ones, so make sure you think wisely. Don’t forget to write them down. And make sure to set your mind on getting them done. Every single one.

December also means Holiday season and parties. Gatherins. Friends. Family.

Christmas, New Year’s Eve.

So many things to do. Planning is needed.

Make lists. Make sure to check them regularly.

  • Christmas office dinner, old friends dinner, new friends dinner, old school mates, you name it. Contacts’ list, where to eat, plan a surprise, choose the budjet, make early reservations.
  • Christmas Eve and Christmas Day meals – Groceries and decoration
  • Christmas presents – Make the list ahead. Don’t forget about anyone. Settle a budjet and try to stick to it.
  • Christmas cards – do you still send them? Also, don’t forget to mail them!
  • New year’s Eve – Groceries and decoration (if you stay at home)
  • New year’s Eve – travel plans if you think about going abroad for a couple of days (bigger plans if you go on vacation and maybe better to start them earlier)
  • Holiday season outfits – yours and your kids.

And above all, make sure your spirit is high!

You have made it through a whole year and you might well get ready for the next one.

December thoughts.

Snug december everyone!
