December is a joyous season-no matter what. MUT’s December could not have been stolen by COVID-19. Staff came in unprecedented numbers to receive their gifts-more than they have done so. The mood at reception was festive and electric. “For a few minutes we forgot about COVID-19 within these premises. We were reminded of the joy that December once held for us. It was refreshing to listen to songs that one is so familiar with outside campus”, commented many staff members.
