This Christmas, it may be hard not to feel a little bit Grinchy. But before you say, “Bah, humbug,” and try to fast forward into the new year, the EAST COBBER has found that there are still some Christmas traditions still being scheduled–some in person and some virtually. The Coronavirus pandemic may mean local holiday events won’t look exactly the same as they have in the past but you can still find lots of holiday fun as listed below.
