The 2020 Christmas season has a new nickname – COVID Christmas. This year, Australians are celebrating Christmas in creative ways and once again, technology has saved many from holiday loneliness.
Many Australian residents are urged to limit their Christmas movements but throughout Australia, the Christmas spirit has not dampened. Pictured in the cover is the Brisbane Christmas Tree which has been in display since 1 December in King George Square.
For many, tomorrow’s COVID Christmas means time to turn to this year’s Christmas miracle, a video call on our devices – to stay connected to our beloveds.
So wherever you are, we urge you to stay connected to your loved ones. Wipe down your smudged laptop screen, make a call to your friends and family who might be in other parts of the world. Let’s work together to keep our spirits up and end 2020 with a bang.
From all of us at Brightannica, we wish you a Merry Christmas. May the joy of Christmas be with you and your family.
