It has been a trying year for everyone and, unfortunately, we are not out of the woods yet as Covid-19 continues to ravage the world. Although we will not be able to gather together in familia it is important to remember that keeping your distance this year ensures that next year you will be able to gather the whole familia together to celebrate.

With that I want to wish you and yours a wonderful Christmas Day, may all your wishes come true. For those that do not celebrate Christmas, I wish you the very best in whatever fashion you celebrate this season.

¡Feliz Navidad!
