COVID Holidays

I’m of the impression that special care has been used for the Xmas decorations this year. Maybe to encourage us to do the usual holiday spending, or maybe just to cheer us up. But I see more lights, windows made as pretty as possible, and the city decorations hanged just so! It is enjoyable to […]
