Nov. 14: COVID Birthdays became a bland day, knowing you couldn’t celebrate like you usually did back then. People began to Zoom and FaceTime with friends and family, or have presents delivered days later to their doorsteps from others. 

It was my mom’s birthday that day. We all gave her flowers and made her breakfast this morning, but our biggest surprise was when a family friend came over to celebrate! We all wore masks and stood 6 feet apart, chatting and wishing birthday wishes. The adults had a glass of champagne at 2 o’clock in the day, and we all were freezing in the cold weather. 

“We haven’t celebrated like THIS before!” said my dad Arthur Yagudayev when coming out of the house in the freezing cold with a glass in hand. 
“It’s something really special,” said Galya Strukova, one of our friends that brought the party to our door. 

I hope that everybody that celebrated their birthdays this year has celebrated to the fullest, and enjoyed all of the nuances and people around them. There are more birthdays ahead, and I’m sure your quarantine birthday is the most memorable.- Photo/Art Editor and Design Editor Ethel Yagudayeva
