2020 is drawing to a close at last. It was a year that made huge demands on all of us. The COVID-19 pandemic has gripped the world and stopped it in its tracks. Christmas is coming, and this year everything will be different – that much is certain. Atmospheric Christmas markets in the run-up to Christmas, merry Christmas parties with friends and colleagues, long-awaited family get-togethers, heading into the mountains for a skiing holiday – all these things will be very restricted this year… if they happen at all.

So, this holiday season is unlike any other, to cap off a year unlike any other. Throughout this season, and as we move into a new, and hopefully better, year, we wish you moments of peace amid the difficulties, connections with family and friends even if they cannot be in person, the warmth of memories from holidays past, and wonderful glimpses of the joy that still lives under the surface.

We wish you endurance, strength, health, and as much happiness as these times can allow!

Season’s Greetings from the entire SVH Team.
