Stories of Celebration During COVID-19

//// By: Harisa Paco, MSW, LICSW, CMC ////

During March and April our whole world saw this pandemic wreak havoc on our lives. And yet, I’ve been amazed by creative ways that people have celebrated while social distancing. It feels like we’re constantly being bombarded by bad news, it’s tough to think about the current status of our cities, our country, and the world.

And so, to keep us in good spirits, and remember the good work that some have done, here is a compilation of stories of celebration from across the globe. May and June are usually big celebration months — we hope you take inspiration from these stories and find ways to celebrate every day.
