Making Memories during a lockdown

When I think of making memories or celebrating during a crisis here are a few tips that I use: Plan: It will take a little extra time to think through how you usually celebrate and what your options are currently. It’s okay to change your traditions. Understand that it’s not the tradition that is special but it’s the thought behind the tradition. Don’t skip it just because it’s not like before.
