How to Celebrate New Year’s During the Pandemic

We all know that 2020 was a year full of unexpected challenges, hardships, and stress because of the COVID-19 pandemic. This year, New Year’s Day will be much more than the first day of the new calendar year; it will mark the beginning of a year that ideally brings new life adventures and positive health changes, which is definitely worth celebrating.
