Just like everything else in 2020, this holiday season is going to be unlike any other. With rising COVID cases and families figuring out how to safely celebrate this year, it’s presenting a ton of challenges: How do we celebrate with family and maintain social distancing boundaries? How can we adjust our kids’ expectations while still keeping the innocent magic of the season? It’s yet another chapter in this year that is filled with uncertainty at every turn.
