Merry Christmas!

The most wonderful time of year has arrived at last! I’d like to wish you all, my Dear Readers, that these beautiful days may be merry, peaceful, filled with joy and laughter. I sincerely hope that mine will be just as described (although I’m fighting a pretty nasty flu at the moment). Let us fill ourselves with good vibes, spend time with our loved ones, and get ready for the new year that’s approaching faster than I expected. Museum Assistant will soon be celebrating its first birthday, can imagine?

Merry Christmas!

With love,

Your Museum Assistant
