    We love the Holderness Family who are locals. They certainly are needed this year!

    For everyone who said they wanted that “simple Christmas” and “time together with family” – you’re welcome. Signed, COVID.

    She is so funny. This has been a strange year. But it’s good to see we haven’t lost our sense of humor.

    In much the same vein, I’d like to post a Christmas poem (with my apologies to Clement Clark Moore).

    ’Twas the night be fore Christmas and throughout the whole town
    No scrap of toilet paper at all could be found.
    Meat counters were empty and grocery shelves bare
    And shoppers hoped soon something good would be there.
    My wife in her kerchief and I in my jeans
    Had just settled down for a long quarantine.

    But the stock market crashed with such a loud clatter
    I turned on the news to see what was the matter.
    Announcers blamed Washington for the germ
    Though the case for a Chinese birthplace was firm.
    Freezers were bought out across the whole nation
    As citizens feared food supply devastation.

    Then schools were dismissed for such a long term
    That parents all over were starting to squirm.
    Kids were bored and unruly, and most ran amuck
    And their parents began to feel that they were stuck.
    At least if they died from this boomer doom blast
    Perhaps they’d find some peace and quiet at last.

    But the citizens stocked and they stockpiled and hoarded
    Thinking for months food might not be afforded.
    Bars were all closed from the pandemic fear
    So folks could not share a cup of Christmas cheer.
    The government’s talk and the media’s shouts
    Assaulted us all ’til our ears were worn out.

    So my wife and I turned off the news to bed down
    Annoyed with the panic that was all around.
    The hogwash was piled so high and so deep
    The best thing we could do was to just get some sleep.

    Ha ha! That was hilarious! I did used to make homemade cookies for our teachers … but as an introvert, in years past I battled family and friend alike to carve out a Christmas just with my husband, sons, and dog. I stopped going to stores to shop a long time ago, we just usually order online and wait for the packages. So … Christmas will probably look exactly the same in many ways. Introverts Unite! … or not. It’s Thanksgiving that we always spent with lots of people.

      We, too, had already become introverts with online shopping and very few get-togethers, Christmas with just our family. Not any different for us this year, except no church.

    Thank you. What a truly funny video! It really is the stark contrast to 2019 and how we all wanted to slow down – just not quite this much.
