Title: Christmas with Coronavirus
Post by: thaiga on October 10, 2020, 04:27:35 PM
Christmas with Coronavirus
Christmas this year for us expats might not seem any different as to any other
BUT .. giving thought to back home and around the globe, is Christmas really going to be cancelled, a time when people get together, parties, family gatherings, they could be cancelled, what about Santa wearing a mask over that big beard and a plastic screen in front of him, OMG where are we going in this world. will christmas gifts instead of socks and a tie be hand sanitiser and a box of masks.

reading an article from the BBC.com the UK. under the heading of

The big day - and the big dinner
Under the new guidance, there will be a limit of six people from multiple households at social gatherings in England, and six people from two households in Scotland. There are some exceptions, but a family of five, for example, could be left with an awkward decision: do we invite grandma or granddad?

Either way, the rules mean there will be fewer places at the table for the all-important Christmas dinner - though there might be more turkey to go around.


then there's xmas eve in the pub, midnight mass, office parties, shopping, pantomines the list goes on, new years eve at Trafalgar square.

Home Alone at 30: how the unlikely Christmas comedy has endured
No one could have predicted that a simple family film would have been such a box office smash in 1990 or that it would remain a favorite decades after.

a kid’s parents leaving for Christmas vacation without him, noticing that they have forgotten him, and then going home. And though everyone loves the hyper-violent hi-jinks, the script saves the main event for the final 30 minutes, hanging with young Kevin for about an hour before he must fend off the attacks of robbers Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern.

Christmas this year is going to be tough, the worry of the much dreaded virus, will our families be safe and being so far apart, thank god for the technology, the internet. acts of love and kindness are more important now than they ever was. just like one christmas card can put a smile on someones face 🎅
