The corridors are deserted.
No-one is responding to emails and phone calls.
The traffic patterns are all wrong.
Everywhere there are signs about closing down.
Everyone is wrapping things up.
People are hugging and saying goodbye.
We have been told not to go to work.
We have been advised to stay home.
People are hurrying to be with their families.
Everyone is stocking up – buying extra provisions.
The air is crackling with heat.
What is happening?
It’s nearly Christmas!
