Although Pa. has shut down yet again due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the rise in number of cases within the state, people living on the Main Line have continued to celebrate the holidays by putting up festive decorations, inside and out. On Dec. 13, I was able to capture scenes with lots of decor throughout towns such as Wayne and King of Prussia, as well as my own home in Shand Vassar. Outside in public spaces, lights are strung and Christmas trees are put up to keep the holiday spirit alive as many people have to stay inside and cannot participate in the usual festivities.
As some folks stay inside their own homes for the majority of the winter, decorations indoors go above and beyond to fuel the holiday spirit many people love. Many families have to adapt their traditions along with changing times as restrictions are laid and rules are put into place. Taking a look inside my own home, many decorations were put out in order to brighten our moods, dulled by the virus keeping us away from friends and family. All through my town people strive to keep the vibes alive as the holiday season is upon us.
