A Covid Christmas Submitted by Poppy Flynn Written by Jan Age 10

Christmas in our family is always spent with family. We wake up Christmas morning, wake up Mum and Dad and my siblings, we go downstairs and take it in turns to open presents. After we have done that we go and put flowers on my sister’s grave, then we go to my Mamgu and Tadcu’s house for Christmas dinner with my aunty and cousins. We eat a lot and have fun and have lots of laughs, then we exchange presents before we have pudding. Once we have said goodbye, we go home to play with some of our presents and watch a Christmas film. On Boxing Day, we go to visit our Nan and Grandad where we do Christmas Day all over again with all my other aunts, uncles and cousins there with us.

This year it will be very different. Because of coronavirus we will not be able to do all that this year. Welsh covid rules say we can only mix with two households which means I can’t see the majority of my family. So, this Christmas we will be spending it at home so that we keep everybody safe.

After we have dinner we open presents and play charades. We have done this since I was a baby.

Hopefully next Christmas we can spend it all with family once again. Stay Safe. Wash hands. Stay 2 metres apart,

And have a safe but happy Christmas.

*Mamgu and Tadcu are the welsh words for grandmother and grandfather. - 66 -
