On behalf of European Tribune, may be wish all of our readers and contributors here a happy Christmas, season's greetings, winter solstice or whatever way you like to characterise or frame it yourself!
It's been a tough year for most of us, with Covid and associated social restrictions making life difficult for many of us, and tragic, awful, or lonely for some. Here's to wishing for you that next year will offer more hope, health and happiness to all, with more effective vaccines and treatments for those who fall ill.
The pandemic has also reminded us of the importance of our social bonds as friends, relatives and citizens and the dangers of the extreme individualism, selfishness, egotism and narcissism of the few who refuse to accept any of their social responsibilities.
In an age of consumerism, perhaps the best gift we can give each other is the space and respect we need to keep well. Keep safe, good friends, until we can meet up again!
