Here’s to everyone who’s not letting fear or government nonsense interfere with their usual Christmas festivities

Sorry for the short article. This week I’m absolutely swamped with the usual preparations for my family’s annual Polish and French Canadian Christmas Eve extravaganza. 

Our feast will include Pierogies, kapusta, crepes, meat pies, and so much more.  My job every year is to make the kapusta.  I follow a recipe that has been handed down through the generations from the Szczecin region of Poland.  I’ve also brewed two batches of homebrew beer to share with everyone.

I’m living in the household where our extended family gathers for every holiday.  The usual throng of relatives will gather here again this Christmas Eve.  Not a single relative has canceled out. We are not altering our festivities in any way at all.  We have done this all during pandemic, except for the Easter Brunch that happened a couple weeks into the pandemic.  We canceled that particular holiday gathering at the beginning out of an abundance of caution because no one knew just then the true nature of the Wuhan Virus. 

Ever since then we have held every single family gathering including major holidays, minor holidays, and a great many birthdays.  Not a single one of us wears a mask or gives a damn about anyone’s vaccination status.  Everyone hugs the customary amount and no one social distances at all. 

Last year the governor of our state banned all gathering in private homes of over ten people.  We steadfastly ignored his ban even though we faced heavy fines.  We are determined to do the same again if that idiot institutes the same fascist restrictions.

Unfortunately a large segment of the population in this country have succumbed to the fear and restrictions, and are canceling their Christmas festivities once again this year. They are missing out on so much.

It saddens me and angers me so much that so many countries have descended into abject tyranny and are placing draconian restrictions on the Christmas festivities of their entire populations. 

Mass non-compliance and mass resistance to all of this tyranny is the only way everyone’s holidays festivities will be truly free again.
