The holidays are my absolute favorite time of the year. But things are different this year and I fear I’ll be saddened by this season of solitude and home confinement. Going from big celebrations with my extended family to spending the holidays alone due to the risk of covid-19 is a real possibility right now.
Nevertheless, I know I am not alone here. In a recent column, Michael Casten wrote about a different kind of Halloween this year and the preparation for the upcoming holiday season. Along with his daughter who has SMA, his wife is also considered to be a high-risk case because she is immunocompromised.
Reading about their new traditions gave me hope. No, things aren’t going to be the same this year. But that doesn’t mean we can’t find new ways to make it just as special.
