Illustrator Beya Rebai was commissioned by The Washington Post for their Christmas Anthology; the theme for 2021 was ‘Return and Restoration’, a group of stories about ways in which people are hoping to return to some sense of the way things were, before the pandemic.

“Today, we offer five stories of return — a couple who pushed their wedding date back three times, a mother and daughter whose separation had gone on too long, a funeral director who dreams about getting a little less business, a boy who rediscovered the faces and frolics of other kids, and a Santa who insisted on finding a way once again to hug and to ho-ho-ho.”
