If 2020 was a movie, this would be the review: zero stars, would not recommend.
A pandemic swept the country, bringing masks and loneliness with it, racial riots and looting exploded, and the presidential election just will not end. Plus, the killer horns.
Thanksgiving gatherings across the country have been canceled, meaning families will not gather for parties and football. So now the question is: Should the last big holiday of the year even happen?
With the social distancing mandate, children have to wonder if Santa slips down the chimney (or at least jumps through a window) to deliver presents. He’s a little old and he do eat a lot of cakes, then maybe he would be considered “in danger.”
But finally, there is some good news in 2020. Jolly Old St. Nick has “innate immunity” to the virus, says Dr. Anthony Fauci, an immunologist and director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases who served in the White House Coronavirus. Special Unit.
“Santa Claus is exempt from this because Santa Claus of all the good qualities has a lot of good innate immunity,” Fauci told USA Today last week. “Santa Claus spreads no infections to anyone.”
But Santa Claus is not going to appear as usual in malls across the United States, The New York Times reported last week.
“We mark all most of the boxes. We are almost all older, we are almost all overweight and almost all have some form of health condition. “Diabetes, breathing problems, you say,” Stephen Arnold, a 70-year-old professional Santa Claus, told the Times. “So we all have to be careful. And to do that, we join our former clients and try to get creative. ”
Macy’s, which has hosted Santa since 1861, will be virtual this holiday season.
“To replicate the magical experience of visiting Macy’s Santaland for children and their families, we are switching to a virtual engagement this year,” Susan Tercero, Macy’s Vice President of Branded Entertainment, said in a news release.
“The experience starts with a greeting from virtual elves that lead the way through Santa’s village and workshop and stop to see the sights and play interactive games. At the end, the children meet Santa Claus through an interactive video, where they can share their holiday wish list and take a selfie, which families can download immediately with Santa Claus, ”CNN reported.
And Santa Claus will still show up at the department store Thanksgiving Day Parade, though the parade will be very different from previous years. “In September, Macy’s announced that they were switching the event to a ‘TV-only’ presentation this year, giving up the traditional 2.5-mile New York City route and reducing the number of parade participants by 75%. And the 80 to 100 handlers who normally fly the balloons will be replaced by special vehicles, ”CNN reported.
