People Are Making Gingerbread Men With Masks For Christmas 2020

With 2020 almost coming to an end, many of us are saying, "finally." The year that was supposed to kick off a brand new decade for all of us turned into one of the craziest years all over the world. From a global pandemic to a wild head-turning election, it's safe to say that everyone is ready for the year to be over.

But, before we count down the days until the ball drops, Christmas is coming right around the corner.


The traditional fun things that many people do for Christmas seem to be taking a back seat this year, as many officials are urging people to stay home and not travel.

On top of that, some officials are limiting the amount of people allowed in people's homes.

Some governors are saying that there can be no more than 10 people in a home for any holiday gatherings at this point in time.

It's hard to get in the spirit of the holidays with a pandemic on everyone's mind.
