To oyster farmers, caterers, delivery people, food traders. To all those who urgently wrap gifts, for themselves or for their customers.
To those who, caught in the course of time, have turned to Amazon to please their loved ones.
To those on call this evening, carers, firefighters, security personnel. And also to those who will be alone this evening.
To those who are on strike. To those who curse them or make good fortune against bad luck.
To impatient children.
And to all of you, close or more distant friends.
MERRY CHRISTMAS !
