Starting in March, historical events began to unfold at every turn. Many of us kept looking at our loved ones, wondering if things could get any stranger. A global pandemic, devastating wildfires for the third year running, looming economic uncertainty, highly controversial elections, lockdowns, food shortages, an odd scarcity in toilet paper have all become the hallmark of 2020. There is even a Christmas tree ornament dedicated to the more globally felt events of 2020.
We feel confident that you have endured multiple personal hurdles that added insult to an already disastrous year. Now on the brink of 2021, we are all holding our breath; what will happen now? Dare we dream? Dare we ask for a calmer sense of normalcy around the corner? No matter the answer, we wanted to take a minute and focus on some of the lighter moments and maybe tickle your funny bone with some of the more amusing tales we found online.
Curl up on the sofa, get a cup of hot cocoa, and laugh with us awhile.

We depart with this final quote from Bruce Sanguin and sincerely wish you all the best holiday 2020 can bring you! We are still here and always willing to support you in any way we can!
