If 2020 was a movie, it would be the review: zero stars, I wouldn’t recommend it.
A pandemic has swept across the country resulting in masks and loneliness, race riots and looting have exploded, and the presidential election simply will not end. Plus, murder hornets.
Thanksgiving gatherings across the country have been canceled, meaning families will not be gathering for the holidays and football. So now the question is: will the last big vacation of the year even take place?
With mandatory social distancing, kids have to wonder if Santa will be sliding down the fireplace (or at least going through a window) to deliver gifts. He is a bit old and he Is eats a lot of cookies so maybe he would be considered “at risk”. He could be a “super spreader” – and the fact that he slips into every house (and apartment) around the world, if there’s a guy who could. really spreading COVID-19 is Santa Claus.
But finally, there is good news in 2020. Jolly Old St. Nick has “innate immunity” to the virus, says Dr. Anthony Fauci, immunologist and director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases who served on the White House Coronavirus Response Force.
“Santa is exempt from this because Santa, of all good qualities, has a lot of good innate immunity,” Fauci told USA Today last week. “Santa Claus will not pass any infection on to anyone.”
But Santa Claus will not be making his regular appearances at malls across the United States, The New York Times reported last week.
“We all check most of the boxes. Almost all of us are elderly, almost all of us obese, and almost all of us have some health problem. Diabetes, respiratory problems, you name it, ”Stephen Arnold, a 70-year-old professional Santa, told The Times. “So we all need to be very careful. And to do this, we join with our old clients and try to be creative. “
Macy’s, which has been welcoming Santa Claus since 1861, will go virtual this holiday season.
“To replicate the magical experience of visiting Macy’s Santaland for children and their families, we will be moving to a virtual engagement this year,” said Susan Tercero, vice president of Branded Entertainment at Macy’s, in a press release.
“The experience begins with a greeting from the virtual elves who show the way through Santa’s village and workshop, stopping to see the sites and play interactive games. At the end, the kids will meet Santa through an interactive video, where they can share their holiday wishlist and take a selfie, which families can download immediately, with Santa, ”CNN reported.
And Santa will always appear at the Department Store’s Thanksgiving Parade, although the parade is very different from years past. “In September, Macy’s announced it was moving the event to a ‘TV-only special presentation’ this year, forgoing the traditional 2.5-mile New York route and reducing parade attendance by 75%. And the 80 to 100 handlers who normally run the balloons will be replaced by special vehicles, ”CNN reported.
