Christmas was different last year. Not only was there no parade, but we didn't have a tree decorating party for almost the first time in decades. The occasion used to occur at our house and included my parents. For the past 16 years, ever since we all moved here, Shauna has had it at her place. Last year, COVID intervened. This year, we were back at Sha's on a Sunday afternoon.
When Sue and I arrived there, Sha and the kids had already erected the tree and strung the lights. We would first add the ribbon and then hang the decorations.
