PICK A SIDE: How will you be celebrating Mother’s Day?
Published May 7, 2021 at 11:04 am
Having nearly reached 14 months of the pandemic, many are fed up with the restrictions—Ontario is one of the last places in North America still in lockdown.
While there appears to be a light at the end of the tunnel, as some experts anticipate 65 per cent of Ontarians could be vaccinated by the end of May, for now, the province remains in lockdown.
As a result, Ontarians will have to spend another holiday without physically being with their friends and family. This weekend is Mother’s Day, the second consecutive Mother’s Day under lockdown in Ontario.
Initially, when the pandemic first started, people welcomed any way they could connect with their friends and family members, even if it was through a screen.
However, now more than a full year into the health crisis, some are feeling fatigued from being unable to spend time with their loved ones, and the novelty of spending holidays and special events over Zoom has worn off for many.
Although, while many may be sick of Zoom events, few other options means some will suffer through another Zoom holiday in order to spend time with those they care about, and send their mothers some love.
Others who simply can’t stomach another Zoom event might just plan to send their mother flowers and call them on the phone.
Some who don’t want to risk contracting the virus, but also don’t want to communicate through a screen, might plan to drive by their mother’s house—the popular trend at the beginning of the pandemic.
So, readers, how are you planning on celebrating the second consecutive Mother’s Day in lockdown?
