With traditional ways of celebrating on pause, Christmas 2020 was definitely one for the books.
Despite COVID-19 – or maybe even because of it – I, and many people I know, celebrated the Christmas season well. As one of my good friends remarked, COVID-19 didn’t spoil her Christmas. She mused that she made new memories; memories that will stand apart from the typical and standard Christmas ones.
This holiday season, we adapted with grit and grace. We accepted the public health restrictions that COVID-19 forced upon us. We decorated, even when Christmas trees were in short supply. We baked, even though we expected no house guests. We found ways to connect with those not in our household or core bubbles. We found church services online. We shared in the joy of the season.
