Inclusive family time in december

Dear Sir or Madam,

Sleep 17 more times and it's Christmas. The time of the year when you sit in the living room with your family for three days being contemplative. That's what the legend says. No matter how Christmas looks like, or whether you celebrate it traditionally or not, it remains a celebration for the whole family. Consistent with this occasion, our Topic of the Month December is about inclusive family life.

Have a contemplative week,

Anne Hofmann
