There are couple of unfortunate facts about this year’s COVID Christmas. One: restaurants have taken a huge hit during this pandemic and really need our support. Two: A lot of us are burned out from the shifting landscape of public health protocols, sick kids, school, event cancellations, and work insecurity. One solution for this year’s smaller Christmas meal is to take a load off and order from a local restaurant.
