A warm welcome to the ones reading this blog. It’s the time for Christmas and New year so almost all of us are pretty much excited and in a merry mood. We all know what happened this year, yes, I am talking about the frightening COVID-19 outbreak. Due to Covid, Christmas and New Year’s celebrations will not be the same as we all need to avoid large gatherings and stay low-key.

Just because it is Christmas does not mean we do not need to follow proper hygiene and physical distancing. At least, I am ensuring that I practice good hygiene and maintain 6 feet distance from people whenever I step out. As the title suggests, I have recently given birth to my baby girl and she is only a month old now so I am almost fussing over her and learning the art of newborn parenting. My baby girl’s birth is another reason for me to have a low-key celebration during Christmas as I don’t want people to create a crowd in my house in this pandemic era. I have planned a very decent Christmas brunch and dinner and would rather spend the entire day with my husband, my 10-year-old son, and my baby girl. Had it been a normal Christmas, I would have invited my family and my husband’s family for a small get-together but this year I’m seriously not taking any risk. However, we both have promised our extended families that we will connect with them through Google Meet. We will open our presents in front of them and have fun.
So, yeah! We are still decorating our beloved Christmas tree with previous year’s decoration items and also with the new items bought from the online store. 24th December is gonna be a very busy day as we both adults would be busy wrapping gifts and decorating the tree and the living room. On the day of Christmas morning, we are going to have a very basic breakfast of blueberry pancakes, french toast, coffee and hot cocoa with toasted marshmallows. For Christmas lunch, I’m making sweet potato salad, spaghetti with meatballs, and chicken casserole. Our Christmas dinner menu would consist of roast turkeys (we will choose smaller ones because it’s just the few of us), roast potatoes, vegetable salad, pigs in blankets, brussels sprouts with bacon, mushroom and corn soup, and for dessert, my husband is making Classic Christmas pudding, mince pies, and fruit cake. That’s about it!
