Christmas may be considered “the most wonderful time of the year,” but 2020 has been very stressful.
The best thing to do this holiday season is to stay home due to the covid-19 pandemic. There are many ways to celebrate Christmas while social distancing. You can also have video calls with loved ones, get takeout from your favorite local restaurant, and attend online church services.
