A COVID Christmas: Light of Hope


Items contained in the picture: A lighted Christmas tree, an electric fireplace, a rocking chair, three unlit battery-operated candles, a Santa rug, and a coffee table.

Context: While Rowan's classes moved to remote learning, many gatherings of friends and family were halted. Every year, Christmas and other holidays are celebrated with the people who want to celebrate with others. However, COVID-19 forced many families to be separated from one another to avoid getting sick. Facetime or Zoom calls were the fastest way of connecting with friends and family to celebrate the holiday season. In addition, the holiday decorations helped fill the emptiness of being alone for the holidays. Remembering those days of the year seemed to be long and drawn out during the pandemic, but looking at the lights on the tree can give a feeling of hope of when families and friends can come together and celebrate again.
