So I’ve never done one of these, but there’s a first time for everything. At least I don’t think I’ve done one of these. My memory isn’t the best. We’ll go with this being my first time and roll with it. ^_^ I’m not familiar with this blogger, I think they commented on my blog or a comment and some people I know follow them so I followed them. Now they’re on my reader and they do this “Truthful Tuesday” thing so I figured, “Why not?” I mean, that’s how these things go, right. Anyway, go to dude’s blog to see the rules and whatnot’s and see other people’s answers. The question of the week is this:
Has this pandemic altered your holiday plans for later this year, or will it be “business as usual”?
By “later this year” the blog linked above explains that he means Thanksgiving and Christmas, though I would suppose that includes all other winter holidays for those who do not celebrate those particular holidays. Doug and I live in the USA so we do celebrate Thanksgiving… in our own way. But we’re not Christian, so we don’t celebrate Christmas. We’re Agnostic, so we do the overall “winter holiday” kind of thing.
As for the question, the virus isn’t gonna make a difference at all in our plans. We’ll probably put up a tree for the winter holidays. We already have it — it’s in our storage closet. We have the decorations and everything. We’ve had it for years and years so we don’t have to go out and buy a new one every year. We used to have Halloween decorations too — a ton of them, but we didn’t get any Halloween visitors in our old house in WA, so we stopped putting them up, and when we moved back here last year, we gave them away. As the days themselves, the pandemic isn’t gonna change that at all with one exception. His mom likes to have us over on Thanksgiving and I don’t think that’s going to happen. I’m pretty sure this won’t blow over by then and I don’t want to risk getting them sick. So we probably won’t go over there this year. Other than that, we’re both introverts so we usually “celebrate” most holidays by staying at home in our pajamas and playing video games. So yeah, the pandemic won’t change that a bit. Anyway, until then:
