A LOVING family has started a magical new festive tradition of peering at elderly relatives through glass.
The Johnsons are determined not to leave their oldest family members to enjoy a moment of the festivities in peace despite the pandemic.
Francesca Johnson said: “These are special times to share as a family. We’re making memories of shouted one-way conversations with our elders that will last a lifetime.
“Seeing their faces light up with a mixture of confusion and annoyance when we wave at them through their back windows has been magical.”
Helen Johnson, 84, said: “It’s such a relief not to have to be in the same house as those boring people for once.
“I only wish they weren’t hanging around steaming up my windows with all the chat I can’t hear because I deliberately didn’t put my hearing aids in this morning.
“I’ve slipped a fiver in each of their Christmas cards, and promised to stay alive until I get the vaccine. What more do I have to do to get them to leave me the f**k alone for once?”
