The world we knew is now a thing of the past. Whatever you call this thing — a pandemic, the Coronavirus, COVID-19 — it seems to have changed everything.
Does that mean it has changed Christmas too?
While the answer to that question is yet to be written we can safely assume at this point in time, Spring of 2020, that we can look to our Christmases past to see if this has happened before.
It has. In this episode of the Merry Little Podcast we explore the theme of Christmas in Crisis — times when a hard reset of life resulted in Christmas done differently. We find that we have been through this before. Many times.
How do you think it will go? What just might be different? From the American Civil War to World War II we appear to be repeating a pattern.
