In Texas, we spend the entire month of August baking in the 100+ degree temperatures and end up feeling as dried out as the week-old turkey leftovers from Thanksgiving. So, inevitably, I begin daydreaming about Christmas, cooler temperatures, and fun times with family and friends. This year, 2020, my Christmas fever is out of control!
As I watch everything unfolding in the world around me, I am craving JOYlike never before. I’m betting you are too…even if you don’t know it.
Many people may be worried the Christmas Holidays are going to be ruined like many of the other benchmarks of 2020. I have a very different perspective.
We may not be able to celebrate with the big events or travel the way we usually do, but I believe, if we let it, 2020 will refocus our priorities for the season and make some of the best memories our families will ever have from the holidays. So, the question of the year is, how do we make that happen?
In The World According to Wendy,I believe we must first focus on our own mindset in order to have a Merry COVID Christmas. So, let’s start there. You pack up other decorations that are out year-round to make room for your Christmas home décor to go out, right? Consider this the process of packing up the distractions and clutter of this year in your mind to start with a blank slate for laying out your plans for the Christmas season.
You’ve checked your attitude, established your goal, and embraced the fact that some extra thought has to go into this year’s festivities, so what’s next? We need ideas and new ways to do things, so each week for the next 12 weeks, I’ll be sharing my top 12 ideas on how to create a Merry COVID Christmas. I hope it will bring you inspiration and encouragement as you plot your holiday strategy. Please feel free to share any ideas you have, too. You can reach me at email@example.com.
Please join us next week as we “Throw Out The Rules” and begin our 12-week process to creating a Merry COVID Christmas!
