December

December is the month of the balance sheets, of the closings, of the celebrations, one cycle begins and another ends.
As we are
19 April, 2018

Argentines love to get together for any reason, or no reason at all. But what during the year is a source of joy and enjoyment, as December approaches, becomes worry and stress. Year-end meetings are multiplying: we have to see each other before the end of the year. As if on the 31st the world was ending, as if in January it were forbidden to get together.

And so the agenda explodes, the plans overlap, and our obsession to meet “before the end of the year” means that the days are not enough, the hangovers become chronic and we regain all the kilos we had lost “to make it through the summer”.

December is the month of the balance sheets, of the closings, of the celebrations. The month in which one cycle ends and another begins. In Argentina, it’s the month when the pace of the weekend is from Monday to Sunday, restaurants are overcrowded, and WhatsApp groups are exploding, reviving and multiplying.

But let’s not despair: January will come with its nights off, its Saturday series marathons, the empty city, the mineral water and the salads. And we can even lock ourselves in the house and not see anyone for a long, long time.
