It is already mid-December and all of us are busy preparing for Christmas and New Year’s festivities. This time of celebration is an opportunity to take a break and spend a little more time with those who are dear to us. In keeping with tradition, it is also time to share our wishes for the coming year.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you a merry Christmas and a happy holiday season, with joy, health and peace. And for the coming year, let’s wish for more openness and tolerance in the world as this is much needed.
