T’is the Season to be jolly. Not really. Not this season, as we wonder collectively: “What will happen this year?” Christmas 2020 will be different for many people. For us, it will mean no family gathering. As I set my few Christmas decorations, I can’t help smiling at the incredible work and fun previous Christmas family reunions meant.
I used to cook for days and set a lovely table. The place would turn into a happy mess a few minutes after my young guests arrived, and the kids would insist on cleaning.
My Christmas decorations are cheering the place and reminding me that true happiness come from the heart. A two-foot tree is standing on a side table and decorated with a string of tiny lights, colored bulbs, and tiny Santas. I remove it and store it in its box every year. A Santa Claus that a friend of my mother gave me for my daughter’s birth, and a Nativity in Lenox, a Christmas gift from my mother many years ago, complete my decorations.
I count my blessings every day. The vaccines are coming and we have something to celebrate.
Over the past two months I published more books than in the past two years and contributed novels to several Authors’ Billboard anthologies.
So yes, it’s the Season to be Jolly.
