A Happy Holiday message to all my friends and colleagues!
This is Deasún Ó Conchúir in Zurich to wish all my customers, colleagues and friends all around the world all the very best for the coming year, and thanks for all the great fun we had working together during the year.
I’m standing in front of Bahnhofstrasse, which is the most expensive street in Zurich which is the biggest city in Switzerland but it’s not the capital. The capital is Bern. The four weeks coming up to Christmas are called Advent, and it’s during that time that we have Christmas markets and plenty of people out on the streets, and quite a lot of special things to eat and drink that only come at this time of year.
Then a week after Christmas is New Year, on the first of January, obviously. In between the two, most people take a holiday so effectively during December, business things tend to run down a little bit and people spend a bit more time on the friendly things in life.
Again, thanks very much for the great year that we’ve had and I wish everyone all the best for 2015.
