I know you don’t want to hear this, but Christmas Eve is nine months from today! We don’t know what this holiday season will be like, though we all certainly hope that we’ll be back to our more usual holiday celebrations with gathering of family and friends. It’s likely that we will still be dealing with some effects of the pandemic. Some families will have empty places at their tables. Others may need to limit or eliminate their holiday spending because of economic losses. Travel may be limited. But, even with the unknowns, since I want you to be relaxed and ready when Christmas Eve rolls around, I’ll keep posting the Christmas Countdown to keep you on track.
