For those looking for a long winter's nap, this Christmas holiday is, calendrically speaking, the perfect storm. Most employees in Estonia will work only two full days in the 12-day period from the winter solstice to New Year's Day.

Estonian Public Broadcasting, Estonia's taxpayer-funded independent media organization consisting of Estonian TV, Estonian Radio and online operations, will remain busy over the holidays, however, with a number of specials on all of its program services.

ERR News, the English-language online news service, will be on standby for any breaking news from the region. We'll also be recapping 2013 and looking ahead to 2014. Otherwise, we remind readers that only next Friday and Monday, December 27 and 30, will be full regular publishing days.

To all our readers, rest ye merry (emphasis on "rest") and have a great holiday week!
