Handling the holidays while handling Covid

As we enter the holiday season this year, we are faced with many new and unique challenges brought on by this pandemic. No longer, for example, can family gatherings be the norm as we ask ourselves who may be spreading the virus. It’s especially difficult for those who have lost loved ones or jobs to even contemplate a holiday season that’s supposed to be joyous when everything seems so bleak. Although the prospects of 2021 are brighter because of the vaccines that are being rolled out, we nevertheless are still left with the question, how do we celebrate? Or, perhaps for many, do we celebrate?

In this episode, my daughter Lauren and I explore the challenges of the holidays, suggesting insights and creative options for not allowing Covid to victimize us or our holidays.
