During a typical year, many people look forward to the holiday season — and with what COVID-19 threw at us in 2020, most people are ready to get back to a more “normal” season for 2021.
However, now we are having surges in Covid-19 with the variants. Radio City has cancelled its season in New York. Many other places are canceling as well. So let’s enjoy it while we can. Who knows what’s in store for us. Let’s stay positive!
The Jersey Shore might not be your first destination during the winter holidays, but many towns dotting the coastline have some special events worth checking out, despite the cold.
