What Christmas looked like….
Almost didnt put up any festive décor, save for that splash of tinsel salvaged from the forgotten paraphernalia of Christmas past.
2020 feels like the year Christmas was almost cancelled, I say almost because for all intents and purposes this festive season could have slipped into a none event, a day just like any other day, add that up with financial challenges, travel restrictions, COVID measures and the scare of a new COVID strain that’s more infectious….
Earlier in the month I had been toying with idea of dressing up as Santa, a Rasta Santa to be precise, for the fun of it…. I mean why waste a perfectly good beard that has more salt than pepper?
When I went out searching for a Santa outfit, I couldn’t find one in my price range but I did run into a clown running a funny business painting festive smiles on kids faces.
While I didn’t get to dress up as Bra Santa I managed to get a Christmas look going and got into the spirit of the day
…and of course my nephew and nieces were suitably awed.
I think I make a dashing Santa, if you know anyone hiring Santas they can book me for next Christmas ^_^
We didn’t have supplies to cook up a festive dinner but we ordered takeaway… When you have a home cooked meal everyday out of necessity, takeaway fast food acquires a certain prestige to rival gourmet cooking. Thanks to the Dial A Delivery service, Christmas was served or is it saved.
From notifications in the family group chat looks like Christmas Day got off to a rocky start but still it did not disappear quietly into a non event.
And it rained!!! It appears our Christmas tradition is to have rain showers on Christmas Day which is usually a bummer when one plans to have a family barbecue outdoors on Christmas… Some have snow on Christmas Day we have rain.
What has your festive season looked like
PS what is Boxing Day anyway? Happy Holidays to you and yours
