Christmas may be cancelled for many of us in the UK, but in spite of travel bans and increased regulations, we’re attempting to keep the spirit alive through thanks and good cheer that we hope will carry us into the new year.
2020 continues to present us with seemingly endless challenges, and we don’t really want to harp on about all that we have collectively tried to overcome. This year was hard, and we’ve been very lucky to be able to continue doing what we do. Many haven’t been as fortunate. We just want to say thank you, and let you know we’re out here rooting for you as well. Whether your loved ones are close at hand or a video call away, we at Moniker Projects wish you the very best on this unconventional holiday.
