I bet your tree is beautiful!Well, you made me smile. I would never ever put up a Christmas tree until after Thanksgiving. But here I am trying to add joy to the our shelter in place life. I put up our artificial tree last weekend. It is now decorated with Easter Eggs, white lights and a white crepe paper streamer garland.
I think I know what you mean. I find it hard to imagine that one day this is going to be over, it's such a huge part of our lives right now with the news, the daily figures, the precautions, the changing of our every day working/shopping/living life world. It's hard to think about Black Friday crowds, packed malls, Christmas carols playing in the stores, the hustle and bustle of people carrying shopping bags full of gifts, planning family and friends celebrations. It's almost surreal, like the world has stopped and how and when will it get going again?I think this Christmas is going to look very different. I just don't know how but I think I need to begin adjusting to the idea now.
I have been thinking this as well. We go to NYC every other Dec and this the year we are suppose to go however we already decided not to go even if this has virus has cleared out. well before then. I am thinking we will staying home more this year and even second guessing if we will be hosting. We usually host Christmas Eve & Christmas Day dinner along with another family gathering between Christmas and New Years.I think this Christmas is going to look very different. I just don't know how but I think I need to begin adjusting to the idea now.
I have been thinking this too.This has been on my mind too! It's hard to imagine things being back to "normal"
We'll see! I think what drives me crazy the most is the UNCERTAINTY of it all. Maybe this will all be a bad dream by Christmas - maybe we'll all still be wearing masks and isolating - maybe we'll be somewhere in between.
This is where I am at. I cannot afford to wait and see what happens and be behind. If we are going to have a weird Christmas it will be the best weird Christmas ever.I'm trying to get myself kick started on crafting the homemade gifts I planned - and trying to stay positive as much as possible.
Mary, great questions, this is exactly what I have been pondering.If we have a pandemic Christmas, then what do I want to do make it feel like Christmas?
What foods do I want to eat at Christmas?
What special drinks do I want to have at Christmas?
If Christmas activities are cancelled, then what can I do at home to make Christmas special?
Who will be receiving gifts this year?
What gifts will I be giving?
