Are you dreading explaining that Covid-19 trumps Christmas to your children this year? Fear not, for Yoopies has created the Guide to how to manage the holidays with children given the current restrictions.

Given the uncertainty we are currently facing, it seems sensible to plan Christmas from a distance.

We know that we need to be mindful about being thorough with our disinfecting at home and that in public places cleaning regimes have been significantly upped to try to combat the virus, including things like fogging in schools and workplaces. What about our clothing? We wash our hands but what about the clothes we are wearing?
As COVID-19 doesn’t seem to be going anywhere fast, loungewear remains a frequent purchase of people at the moment. So many people are ditching those fancy outfits in favour of comfy and cosy numbers to wear at home, because we won’t be going far for a while will we?
We are living through a pandemic. We have never done this before. We are learning new things everyday about not only COVID-19, but also about the pattern of pandemics in the past. This is all new, this is not a time for resistance, it is a time for listening and responding and considering others in a way you may have never done before.
So how is back to school going for you all with this new normal? It certainly feels quite different this year doesn’t it?
