December 2020 – Exclamation Points!

This Christmas is indeed different. Annual holiday parties have been canceled, holiday events are virtual – if at all – and the number one stocking stuffer this year is a mask.  When I look back at Christmas last year, we truly could not have anticipated such devastating changes in only 12 short...
