The holiday rush is true for almost everyone in the country. It isn’t an understatement to say that these three months are hardly enough time and that the last quarter of the year often carries the heaviest load of work. People are juggling tight deadlines at work while keeping up with their Christmas gift shopping and noche buena preparations. Knowing this, countless brands and organizations call for attention as the merriest day of the year draws ever nearer – their marketing taking advantage of everything the season brings with it.

Amidst all these, it’ll be a struggle for some to find their footing, whether as a consumer or otherwise. As everyone transitions to a new normal, organizations and businesses have to find a way to strengthen their presence.
