From all of us at Rikumo, we want to wish you a happy holiday season. Whatever you celebrate (and even if you don't), the holidays are a time for us to reflect on the lives we lead: the people we surround ourselves with, the decisions we've taken over the past year, and the places we want to go in the future. Wherever we are, and wherever we go, the people we hold dear are always there with us. Today, the most important thing is to be truly present with those we love, to spend not money but time, to exchange not only gifts but conversation. May you spend a wonderful holiday weekend with relatives, friends, or neighbors. Wherever you go, we wish you strength, happiness, serenity, and peace on these special days.
