For 46 weeks of the year, there's lots of freelance and contract work
However, I find that right around now it's basically hard to find any contracts or freelance work.
I find there's just not much there until about January 15.
Surprisingly this seems to be a worldwide phenomenon. Global new year!
Obviously all contractors/freelancers financially plan for this.
But, is there any specific tricks to find more works at this time of the year, which freelance/contractor software engineers have found?
I thought this might be an interesting question for the site, with broad application.
 it starts at about 2pm London time, on the Thursday before December!
