It's that last part of the countdown but still there's work to be done and those last meetings to schedule as a build towards the 'end of year'.
It can be quite disorientating, with many organisations powering down, the schools broken up for the festive season and the added variable of snow interfering with travel plans.
I've been in our main office every day this week and had some pretty early starts, although meetings today and tomorrow are by videoconference and phone. It's also a time to archive stuff and reset for the new year.
By the end of tomorrow I should be clear and then it will be a question of keeping a quiet check on email and breaking out the paper hats.
