Today’s question: “Has this pandemic altered your holiday plans for later this year,
or will it be ‘business as usual’?”
Personally I think taking ‘The Path of Least Resistance’ with regards to the future
of the most horrific year I’ve experienced within my lifetime is a good option as
news articles are wrought with grim tales.
I’ve given up hope for future positive changes the last quarter of year 2020.
This dismal thought pattern rings true throughout the community of we older folk.
I suppose some families will adapt in order to celebrate with the question of
safety lurking in their minds.
Few restaurants offer inside eating at this time thus a hindrance for
those who wish not to cook their own feasts. Take-out meals for these
holidays will likely be on the expensive side.
Tis doubtful I’ll patronize local department stores as already I dislike ‘The
Twilight Zone’ seen at the supermarkets. Thus the alternative is to shop online
which for me takes more time than hands-on shopping at retail stores.
As for a family dinner which to date hasn’t been a topic of discussion I feel
there will be less attendees.
Overall, it’s a most sad state of affairs especially for families with children
who’ve been forced into a whirlwind life of upheaval.
I rather doubt there’ll be the usual pattern of celebrations during either
of the two holidays in question.
All we can do is continue to pray and take one-day-at-a-time until life
returns to normal.
