Have you lost it?

Dear Fellow Journalers,

Have you lost your Christmas spirit? I read an article about the numbers of cases of Covid 19 in my state this morning and it truly frightened me. I’ve been practicing social distancing, wearing PPE etc. and have become a virtual hermit. The percentage of cases in my state this past November was 4.78 and now it is 6.61% YIKES!

This year will be so different – no parties, no Christmas Eve Services, no big family gatherings around the tree on Christmas morning and no holiday shopping. Strange as it may seem, I liked shopping during the season -maybe not the long lines but the spirit everyone seemed to have.

What do you do when you’ve lost your spirit? There’s a mantra I read on Facebook (of course) that states:

DON’T LET COVID KILL CHRISTMAS!

So what should we do? One thing for sure is stop writing negative and scary entries in your journal. Some ideas flooding the internet are:

Virtual video toasts, Virtual game nights, Host an outside meal, volunteer by contract free donating, If putting up a tree seems pointless, take a collection of ornaments or table top decorations and set them up on a table or mantle.

Make your own greeting cards for family and close friends. Play Christmas music, watch Christmas movies, bake a favorite holiday treat each weekend. Last weekend I made fudge; this weekend it will be Kaluha Brownies. And finally, make a pot of your favorite hot beverage, snuggle under a warm and cosy quilt and read a holiday book. I am currently reading a Debbie Macomber Mrs. Miracle.

~Happy Holiday Journaling,

Sallie
