People Need People, Covid Or No Covid


By: Veronica Leighton


After two years of Covid-19 restrictions (masks, distancing, hand washing), we are now feeling free and no-worries at all in celebrating Christmas 2022 this time. Hallelujah! Of course, we have to be conscious of the health precautions that have been inculcated in our minds during the pandemic to keep ourselves safe and healthy as viruses, bacteria, and germs always lurk in many corners of the world that we live in.

These days of Christmas season, back again in our midst of activities are office parties, private personal parties, club socials, church fellowships, community get-togethers and dances — you name it all, and they are back with a vengeance for many party animals out there. Though Covid altered the ways we connect to one another, from limiting hugs and kisses to limiting the overall number of people we socialize with, we are now finding out that the party must go on. Socialization is a must f or humans, just like what Barbra Streisand sings in “People.” “People who need people are the luckiest people in the world…”, Covid or no Covid.

On this page shows what we are talking about through images/ pictures of various activities that have happened around us at the start of this busy month.
