Who else is just skipping it this year?
To be forthright, I’ve never enjoyed the holidays. I’ve always had to work and never had the time to decorate, shop or cook for the holiday, however I always felt pressured to do it. So for this year I am not doing anything different on Tday than any other Thursday. For Christmas I’m not putting up a tree, buying gifts or planning anything at all. I actually feel liberated. My son and his wife are expecting their first baby on Christmas Day so they aren’t coming(they wouldn’t regardless due to COVID-19). Daughter may come up, but it would only be for a day or so. She works at a COVID testing lab so gets tested regularl, otherwise she wouldn’t be visiting.
