Good morning, my friends! How are you ho-ho-holding up so far? I hope that your packages have all reached their destinations, that your socially distanced in-person shopping is done, and that you’ve successfully scaled back your expectations for this year to fit a Christmas that’s going to be different no matter what.

First, let me give you a song to listen to while you read the rest of this post:

It’s off If The Fates Allow: A Hadestown Holiday Album, from the cast of the Tony-winning musical and was my surprise favorite for Christmas albums this year. You can buy and/or stream the album at the link above.

Now, here at the Burrow, while we are in a bit of an isolated holding pattern as we await the hopefully negative results of Rudi’s COVID test, I have closed my work laptop for what I believe is the final time this year. (Tomorrow it will get put into the laptop bag for the first time since I brought it home in March.)

I have several pounds of butter, sugar, and flour that I plan to start converting to cookies on a daily basis; a literal pile of books to read, projects to knit, and music to listen to; and video calls to schedule with loved ones celebrating in their own little boxes around the world. I will turn off all my alarms before I head to bed and instead will rely on the instincts of a 20-pound cat who is convinced he is starving to get me up for the next ten days.

Today, on our penultimate day of the Virtual Advent Tour, we have two stops for you. When I zonked on the sofa after an epic workday, Rudi sweetly wrote me an extra blog post in case I needed it. I am not one to look askance at such a generous Christmas present nor I am so selfish as to keep it for myself. So first, I will send you off to Random Duck for some COVID Christmas carols. Go start up one of his songs in one tab and then come back here for our second stop. We’ll wait….

Then, we also have our fourth and final post from Deb Nance at Readerbuzz. She shares with us her Christmas village, which looks like a jolly place to spend this year’s holidays!

And we’ll see you back here tomorrow morning with one final stop on our Virtual Advent Tour!
