First of all: thank you to all of you – our loyal magazine subscribers and readers; our advertising and publication clients; our industry partners and vendors; our writers and photographers; our blog and social media followers; and all of the people who’ve worked with us to keep learning, growing and thriving over the last year, against all the odds in these troubled times. We hope the holiday season has begun beautifully for you!

We’ll be officially closed for the holidays from Monday 19 December and will re-open on Tuesday 3 January. But of course, we’ll still be around online and in and out of the office from time to time if you need anything, especially if you take advantage of the last-minute gift ideas from MEP!

We’ve also got lots in store for next year, including 20th anniversary celebrations for both MEP and Caribbean Beat! Stay tuned. 🙂

So from our family to yours, we wish you all a truly blessed and restorative holiday season, with joy, peace, hope and prosperity in the new year and always!

And here’s last year’s greeting card (minus Hazel and JT, however!) for some holiday laughs!
