A COVID Christmas
How are your holiday plans changing due to COVID? It seems like we're all learning to adapt and create new holiday memories. I normally sing in Christmas Eve services and I'm adjusting to knowing that might not happen this year. I won't be spending Christmas Day with my parents, Andrew and I will have a quiet holiday alone with our pets.
Don't get me wrong, a day off with the opportunity to sleep in and watch movies on television sound completely relaxing after a stress filled year.
How does music play into your holiday? Will there be songs around the Christmas tree or to celebrate Hanukkah? Do your holiday dreams include a new guitar or amplifier? How about a drum set or an effects pedal? Do your stockings need guitar picks or drum sticks?
We're all doing things a little differently this year. If you've never thought about shopping local this holiday season, I would like to encourage you to do so this year. Order one less gift from Amazon and help support the struggling business owners in your community. We're all reinventing ourselves daily, doing our best to keep our door open and our employees paid.
Local businesses pay local taxes. They provide local jobs and give back to local charities. We're the first to step up when Meals By Grace needs help feeding needy families. We help provide gifts to kids in foster care and drop off cat litter at the animal shelter when they put out a call for help. We don't do it for thanks and often we do it without any fanfare. We do it because we care about the community we live in and we want our community to thrive.
This year when you shop, think about stores like Dutch Monkey Doughnuts, Simple Strands, Talk of the Table, and The Gibson Company. Think about Giorgio's and Marie's Deli. Think about the small shops and restaurants that are part of this community we all love. They've all worked hard to get through a summer, fall, and now the beginning of a winter of COVID. Support them so that they can continue to support the community we live in.
And, if it's on your list, stop by Music Authority and let us help you find that guitar, amplifier, drum set, or stocking stuffer for your tree. We would be honored to serve you this holiday season.
