As we begin to prepare for the holidays this year, we know it might feel a little overwhelming as parents, since we are all still dealing with COVID and trying to follow the CDC guidelines about limiting the number of people gathering. And as much as we want our holidays to be happy, we also want them to be safe. So we wanted to share a couple of great articles we found about how to do that.
