Festive season

Spencer Robinson, Suva
Wednesday, November 29, 2017

The month of November will soon become history as we fast approach the final month of this year.

The month of December is considered to be a time of joy and festivity as it is the season of Christmas.

Christmas break-up parties will be high on the agenda as the majority of organisations, associations and groups make final preparation for a joyous and memorable occasion.

Indeed, employees and members of associations or groups deserve to enjoy and celebrate as a team for all their hard work, dedication and contribution throughout this very challenging and exciting 2017. While celebrations will come in the form of a variety of delicious food, music, kava and of course alcohol, it is important that we enjoy and drink responsibly and refrain from drinking and driving.

The celebrations should also be a time to reflect on our success and shortfalls while at the same time making amends for improvement for the coming new year.

In addition, December should be a time to appreciate and cherish the one thing that makes home the best place to be in the world today, that is, our beloved families. Work commitments during the year had also meant less time spent with the family so please make it your priority to spend quality time with your wonderful families this Christmas.

Therefore, my best wishes to all of you in your respective break up parties and have a blessed Christmas and an enjoyable new year, 2018.
