They canceled Christmas

The mayor of Strasbourg, Madame Jeanne Barseghian, in view of the ever worsening pandemic in town, decided to reduce the yearly Christmas market to it's simplest expression: a big tree, lights, and not much else. No chalets, no market, no Vin Chaud... And many businesses going bankrupt.

It should have marked the 450th anniversary, uninterrupted since 1570 AD, even during wars.

It'll be the same here, I imagine.
