I was happy to see that the Organic Prepper just had an article on Preparing for Christmas now. I am done with my Christmas shopping and have been collecting special food items that I plan on bringing out Christmas day. It may sound paranoid but I do think Christmas will be disrupted. Here’s Why You Should Start Getting Ready for Christmas NOW It’s probably no surprise to learn that what has been one of the strangest years in recent history could culminate in a very strange Christmas. Our nation is reeling from an economy that was crashed by COVID lockdowns, the potential second wave of a pandemic which will result in more economic damage, a broken supply chain, civil unrest, and a presidential election that will almost certainly be hotly contested, regardless of who “wins.” Here's Why You Should Start Getting Ready for Christmas NOW If you are planning on traveling over Christmas, that could be a problem. I have heard airlines are asking people to get a covid test prior to flying. So if we are in a second wave then getting a test may not be easy. What about stocking up on your favorite Christmas meal foods now, ahead of the crowd. In March the supermarkets were wiped out of most foods in my area so buying your canned cranberry now may be a good idea. Also, I have been purchasing soaps, wipes and hand sanitizers that will go in gift baskets. I have certain folks in my life that do not prep but these things will be valued especially if we are in a second wave.
