It’s officially here, the holiday that so many people around the globe look forward to all year. Whether you’ve been counting down for the bright, flashing lights or looking forward to that delicious holiday feast – the time has come! Today, I want to take a moment to wish you all a Happy Holidays!
There is no doubt that this year looks a little different for most of us.
Travel plans have been cancelled and families are getting together virtually through video conferencing programs like Zoom, Skype, House Party and Google Meets.
Just last night, we sat in the living room celebrating virtually with my husband’s family.
While we can’t get together with our loved ones in person, we live in an age where technology still connects us – something that wasn’t available to those who have lived through pandemics throughout history.
Around the globe, first responders and medical personnel are doing an incredible job on the front lines of this battle.
Thank you to all those who have been working tirelessly, making personal sacrifices, to allow us to share in this holiday celebration with family both near and far.
While we celebrate Yule in our house (which is already behind us), we have also adopted some of the more common Christmas festivities including gathering around our Christmas tree to open gifts.
We make sure that each of our pets has a gift under the tree to open Christmas morning.
This year, Jinx opened her own gift up for the first time. It was definitely one of those moments where we all laughing hard enough that we completely forgot about the crazy year that brought us to this point.
(Don’t worry, I made a point of grabbing a video so that you could all laugh along with us.)
Stay tuned to our social media platforms for more pictures and videos over the coming days.
I promise that I have a lot of fun and adorable moments to share!
Happy Holidays to you and your family, from our ‘pack’!
How are you celebrating this holiday season?
I’d love to hear all about it, including your favourite traditions, funniest moments and more!
