Well here we are again. Another Christmas spent coping with Covid -- that holiday guest who just doesn't seem to realize that they've overstayed their welcome.

Sadly, the recent Covid surge is bringing chaos to our daily lives. We are unsure whether or not we will be able to finally get together with our loved ones, and each day doesn't seem to bring any more clarity. Indeed, here in VOOMcart's stomping grounds of Ontario, it seems as though we are perpetually braced for the next restrictions announced by Premier Doug Ford.

We admit that we are fanatics -- where else can you get realtime stats in such a fascinating format? But the downside to the unrelenting news is that the covid numbers are going the wrong way, economic uncertainty is hovering throughout the world, and self-isolation is taking a toll. We are craving human contact more than ever this holiday season and yet again, it seems just outside our reality.

So! With the prospect of a quiet Christmas again, it is going to take some effort for us all to keep the claus-o-meter peaking with good Christmas vibes. As we begin to self-isolate, quarantine, and organize our "bubble" of safe human contact again, we thought we'd reach out with some ideas to find a little joie de vivre with your VOOMcart.
