Holiday Tips/Guides for a 2020 Holiday Season
The holiday is upon us once more, even if this year it looks a bit different. The CDC holiday guidelines urge for the safety of all, that “the safest way to celebrate the winter holidays is to celebrate at home with people who live with you.”. While we could sit and bemoan these changes, it might be a good idea to remember what the holiday season is about.
The winters have always been hard for humanity, which is why we recognized the need to celebrate during this time. Every year, we put aside our differences to collectively choose joy over despair. This year, we need that more than ever. So let’s embrace these changes, knowing that they’re for the good of us all, and create a holiday season that once again chooses joy, kindness, and togetherness.
To help with some holiday ideas, here are some fantastic Issuu publications with their tips and guides to tackling this 2020 holiday season.
