December newsletter: Merry Christmas, voorpret & our monthly poll: every day or everyday?

Welcome to the LEaF newsletter

It is almost time for LEaF HQ to shut up shop for the Christmas period. Like many other businesses, we’ll be closed from Friday 23rd December until Tuesday 3rd January, and we are very much looking forward to spending some time with our loved ones, and away from our screens. I want to take this opportunity to say a huge thankyou to all of our clients and to all of the incredible translators and international SEOs who help make LEaF such a great place to work. Have a wonderful couple of weeks with your families and loved ones – it’s fair to say that, after the last two years, we all very much deserve a proper break! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all! πŸŽ…πŸΌπŸŽ„β›„οΈπŸŽ

Merry Christmas from LEaF!

We don’t send out Christmas cards at LEaF Translations because of our commitment to being a sustainable company. Instead, we make a charity donation. This year we have bought two Bundles of Warmth from the Choose Love shop and we have made a food donation to the Collective Sharehouse, a local food bank. To find out more about our gifts, read our blog post here.

Christmas Countdown LEaF Translations

Word of the month

The festivities are well underway here at LEaF Translations and we are very much enjoying the excitement of the run up to Christmas Day.​​​​​​​​
Make sure to enjoy this time, it is very easy to get caught up in the stress of the Christmas rush but take a step back every now and then to appreciate every moment.​​​​​​​​


  • If you haven’t been following it already, make sure to check out our Christmas Countdown on Instagram. We are nearing the end now, but check out the posts you’ve missed to find out about Christmas around the world, translation tips, and language trivia. @leaftranslations
  • The LEaF Translations team enjoyed a lovely festive day in York to celebrate Christmas. We had a great meal at Il Paradiso Del Cibo, followed by a walk around the Christmas markets.
  • We will be closed from 23rd December to 3rd January to enjoy the Christmas festivities. Merry Christmas!

What do you think?

In last month’s poll, we asked you:

Fill the gap: “The athlete trains _____ from 8am to 9am”
1) everyday         2) every day

89% of you got the correct answer, which was ‘every day’. 
Everyday is an adjective used to describe something that is seen or used daily. (Synonyms would be ordinary or typical.) Every day is a phrase that simply means ‘each day’, like in the question here.

We are looking forward to all of our monthly polls in 2023, don’t forget to follow us on LinkedIn and Instagram to take part!
