We know two things: a) Rhode Island will shut down again as we go into winter, and perhaps even more intensely than last August and b) it is humanly impossible to 'cancel' the joy of the December season.

Theodor Geisel, creator of "The Grinch who Stole Christmas," wrote that Christmas will always come when there are hands to clasp.  We are living in a time when for many, this is not possible.  We are also reminded of the lyrics to the carol, "The Drummer Boy." Without being able to purchase a gift for the newborn king, a boy plays him a song.

After intense deliberation and scrutiny, BoP has decided to hold a contactless Christmas celebration on its 2.2 acres.
