It’s the festive season, the time of the year where people take a break from whatever they do, either work, studies or anything to spend some quality time with their families and beloved ones. What is also special about the festive season is how the whole world celebrates it with happy rituals like baking holiday-themed cookies, sharing gifts, decorating homes and trees, expats traveling to their homelands, families having dinner together, and much more.
And while celebrations might vary from one country to the other, the festive season is known to be the season where love and kindness are spread throughout the whole world.
