Dear readers,

Welcome to our final issue of 2023. It’s been a busy term with many highs and lows, and now it’s finally time to take a breather as we look ahead to the new year.

The fall semester has flown by and it’s hard to believe we’ve already put out eight issues of Interrobang since August. We’ve spanned topics ranging from sex to tech to mental health, and we’ve got even more exciting themes to cover in 2024.

Listen live on

This time of year is one of reflection, a time for coming together and looking back on the past year in anticipation for the next. The holidays have also become synonymous with the idea of peace and joy. But for many around the world, peace and joy are in short supply right now. So as you enjoy your break, cuddling up with family and friends and savouring the privilege of a peaceful holiday season, spare a thought for those unable to do the same, both abroad and close to home.

Our Holiday Issue explores how and why Canadians are spending less on holiday shopping this year, and how some of the best gifts you can give are those without a price tag. We also look at some of the ways you can give back to your community through volunteer work and donations.

We hope you find this issue both informative and fun, and from all of us here at the Interrobang, happy holidays and have a beautiful new year!
