Despite the unusual circumstances surrounding Christmas due to COVID, parking lots at the mall and mega retail stores have been full, and delivery services have had difficulty making sure online shopping purchases were delivered before Christmas Day as a result of this massive retail spending spree.
Religious gatherings for all faiths were cancelled.
Our eight-year-old granddaughter, Makenna, after receiving lots of gifts from Santa together with her six-year-old sister, Emery, wrote the following thank you letter to Santa.
hope you had a wonderful Christmas and will have a happy new year! And hope Mrs Clause has a merry christmas and a happy new year And I am thankful for Christmas, presents and family, Because Christmas is not just about Presents it’s about when Jesus was born.
Love Makenna, Emery, mom and dad MERRY CHRISTMAS”
Out of the mouths of babes.
