It's an Odd Christmas Eve

Socially Distant

Usually I'm looking forward to family visits on Christmas, but there are no visits this year. I feel sad about it but eventually this pandemic will be under control. In the meantime we can chat online, at least.

Do you like my antlers and mask?

Sigh! Lynn is still struggling to recover from Covid. Her temperature went down yesterday but today it went back up a little. I know she's tired of staying home and feeling ill.

Well, I have a few cell phone pictures of sights and signs to show you, starting with two from Fishers Hill.
Someone dresses their geese statues for each season.

I could have cropped out the dirty snow below the JOY sign but it seems fitting for this year. We look for a little joy where we can find it. 

The final two images are from downtown Front Royal. Shop windows on Main Street are decorated for Christmas.

I hope that if are celebrating Christmas tomorrow, you do it safely but also feel warmth and joy.



  1. Hello,
    Love the photos! Merry Christmas to you and your family!I wish you all the best in 2021, a happy and healthy New Year!

  2. ...thanks Linda for spreading the JOY! Stay healthy and enjoy your Christmas.

  3. You were also decorated well for the season! I loved finding Mini Mouse right along with the nutcrackers...I doubt that she cracks nuts, but you never know. Have a safe and happy holiday!

  4. Merry Christmas! Love your mask and reindeer antlers. Hope your family has a great holiday season.

  5. It is definitely a weird holiday this year.
