“It’s the most wonderful time of the year,” sings Andy Williams. And I have to agree.
People seem more cheerful, everything is on sale and homes are dressed up to the nines in Christmas decorations.
Christmas is also a time where many reflect on the year and be grateful for their blessings, and I have to count IKEA as one of them.

Pei Chyi and I are both business owners, and life doesn’t stop during the Christmas season. I’ve been racing to complete projects in December, so that I can have a peaceful year end break. Throw a hyperactive 2-year old in the mix and you have a recipe for mental meltdown!
