We are beginning to see warnings and advisories not to congregate. This is coming from both across the border in Canada and here in the US. We are being warned not to get together now in an effort to save our gatherings at Christmas. For now, however, even the Christmas celebrations are in doubt. Over the border, there are threats for the government that they will cancel Christmas. People have to take our health issues seriously they have stated. They inform that they know that gatherings of all kinds are what are causing the spread of the pandemic. In the US it is the same with warnings that if we continue to ignore the advice to not gather in any way. Then numbers of cases and deaths will continue to rise and here too Christmas celebrations are at risk.
