According to the news Canada has record numbers and about 2 weeks before hospitals are scrambling & overwhelmed... just in time for Christmas. Ho ho ho.
The rest of the world doesn't appear much better off.
I'm not feeling 'Christmasy' this year, as I'm sure many are not - I'm excited to see how we will be creative in new ways this holiday! I do believe the world is becomeing a little more thoughtful' , AWAKE & that is hopeful. A good thing to focus on.
No Christmas tree. Not with the puppy, a few favorite decorations like the stable Norm made many moons ago... I have 'skipped' Christmas before, it was less stressful & less work! More quality time relaxing & watching wood burn, snow falling... dog snuggling.
We plan on a special meal, exchange a gift -HOMEMADE (by the grace of God) but that's all. In the past I've alwasy encouraged ***NOT Going into debt at Christmas***
& this year is NOT the exception.
Please don't. Be honest with your children & they will become wise beings.
Adding debt - adds stress & that takes away from the quality of life...
2020 has been stressful enough.
Do support local business, perhaps smaller stores as they are hurting the most from what I've been reading.. these small communities 'rely on each other' we are shopping local, local takeout, local farm' supplies... Amazon- is not hurting.
Preferably handcrafted, I also hope to purchase a couple of Music CD's from some Canadian artists. Please support your community & country.
Tom's got bird houses! $15 - $40 all money goes to local charity!
& you are helping birds.
Either way... the Grinch is back Christmas 2020
