Let’s get those calendars ready.
Soon, we’ll be flipping the calendars to 2021. And it will be a hard one, ya know? I mean, who doesn’t want to hang on to 2020, what with the shortages of toilet paper, being shut down or held back, not being able to travel fully, and, oh yeah, a deadly virus.
Add to that one of the most nasty and contentious presidential campaigns (as well as other offices) in my lifetime and who wouldn’t want it to end.
Alas, we need to end it with a bang, don’t we?
It’s December. The holiday season! Parties galore! Maybe it’s for the office. Or something among friends! Booze will be flowing freely, I am sure. Some great food with everybody dipping their hands into the servings.
Mmmm mmmm good!
Imagine all those hugs. Maybe a few smooches. And depending on the party and people, who knows what else.
Goodness, the holidays are upon us and the people are ready.
But wait, 2020. You’ve really messed up our year, haven’t you?
People are anxious. Tired. Nervous. Well, probably half. The other half seem to think they are bionic and can just waddle through everything.
So party season?
It won’t be like it usually is. The holidays – for many – will be smaller. The office parties and huge gatherings? I’d think most will be skipped this year.
This virus is real and maybe with vaccines and such coming, we’ll start seeing something change.
But the party season?
I’m honestly going to be happy if my family stays healthy and we can have a small gathering for Christmas (it’s usually only seven or eight of us).
I’m not much of a party goer. I used to love our softball team parties for the holidays back when I still played. But outside of that, I was never much for going to them. When I was younger, I loved the holidays with bars. However, I honestly haven’t been in a true bar for a beer since I stopped playing softball a few years ago.
For those who live in areas where the “restrictions” may not be as strong, I hope you will all consider being smart this holiday season. Follow public health protocols. What we don’t need this party season is a massive breakout.
Stay smart. Stay healthy. Wear a mask.
