NOT going to Christmas Revels this year (viz. 2020) has been the BIGGEST impact COVID-19 has had on my life!

I was worried that this would come to pass in May 2020 — & ALAS it did.

I checked it out. IT IS GOOD. Well worth the money to rent or even BUY.

We have to SUPPORT Revels. We need them back, LIVE, in 2021.

So, come on. Be a sport. It is Christmas.

It will cheer you UP. SMILE.

NO LIVE ‘Christmas Revels’ 2020 In Cambridge, MA — I Am Beyond Crushed, My WORST COVID Nightmare.

by Anura Guruge



My family will testify that I had been DREADING this — i.e., NO live Cambridge Revels — for MONTHS! I just had a horrible feeling. I am crushed. Feel cheated by COVID, feel lost. Yes, I fully appreciate that in the bigger scheme of things that this is but mere bagatelle, but it is something that I truly look forward to year-to-year.

Way back, maybe as early as April, I was going around saying: “I hope Christmas Revels will not get cancelled“. Just a few few ago, my 14-year old daughter, who also likes her Revels assured me that there was plenty of time for them to get the show on stage. I knew otherwise & it has proved to be the case. I am crushed.

Truth be told the COVID-19 pandemic did not impact me much. This was the biggest & bitterest blow.

I am a bit of recluse as the best of times. Other than my mandatory daily walks (including the mile at night) I can go 5-days without ever getting in a car to go anywhere (& I do have 5-cars). I am happy to be at home & write. Plus Teischan was already been homeschooled. So, there was no change there.

Yes, I do miss going out to eat. That is a big change. I probably used to eat out at least 4-times a month. Now I haven’t even done fast food or take out in 5-months. But, it hasn’t bothered me too much. I still eat & I can always afford to lose some weight.

Vacations was another change. Normally, at a minimum, we would have gone to Acadia for a few days at the end of June. But, we have been compensating for that with our weekly, day-trips. Plus, we have something planned for later.

But, Revels. Aahhhh!

I am crushed. Teischan & I had already planned to go to the LAST showing — which used to be our custom. Same with the circus. Go for the last performance (in town). Now nothing.

Virtual does NOT cut it with I.

I understand. It would have been near impossible to have pulled it off. But, I am, nonetheless, sad.

2020 will NOT feel right without Revels.

I will always blame COVID-19 for depriving us of Revels.

They are GOOD FOLK.

Definitely more charitable than I! I REFUSE to celebrate the Summer Solstice. I HATE the Summer Solstice. It depresses I NO END. Winter is coming. Days are getting shorter.

Yikes. I can’t wait for the Winter Solstice. Ahhhh! Revel.
