Christmas Without the Joy of Shopping


Title (Dublin Core)

Christmas Without the Joy of Shopping

Description (Dublin Core)

My story deals with how I had to change my gift giving approach for my son in the 2020 holiday season. I chose not to shop in stores for his gifts, to reduce my exposure to the virus and avoid passing on a virus from myself to others. Instead, I gave him gift certificates. This change reduced the holiday joy for me, as I greatly enjoy shopping for just the right gifts for him by directly engaging in the shopping experience in a physical location, and he appreciates the effort and the unique gifts I always found for him.
This is a response to the #pandemicprompt on the holidays for Arizona State University, HST 580.
