Christmas this year has been relatively different for many people, thanks in no small part to the pandemic. With people still staying away from their loved ones, actress Selma Blair shared her experience.
Selma Blair took to Instagram to share her experience at being pretty much alone for Christmas. In a post, the actress reminisced on her situation, drawing comparisons to the many people going through the same thing.
It is worth noting that Blair was not entirely alone. As the post showed, the actress had her son, Arthur, with her for the holidays. Mother and son looked to have enjoyed themselves, unwrapping gifts and posing for the cameras.

In her captions, however, Blair was more reflective. The actress explained that this had been her first Christmas without her mother. At the same time, many people are staying alone due to the new coronavirus. Blair said:
"A quiet Christmas. We did not see our friends or family besides our tiny group. I have had trouble staying awake... I know the holidays can be hard for some."
Despite the loneliness, Blair was able to draw comfort with her family. The actress went on to explain that she was still hopeful that things would get back to normal.
Blair ended the post by sending her appreciation to the many frontline and healthcare workers who have been active throughout the lockdown.
Still, instead of just taking the award, the two decided to reenact the kiss.
Blair's mother, Molly Cooke, died back in May. The 82-year-old had worked as a judge for most of her life, and Blair paid a lovely tribute to her on social media.
The actress did not reveal the cause of her mother's death. So, it is unclear whether it was a complication from the novel coronavirus or not. Even with her mother's death, Blair has been a source of encouragement for many.
The actress, who has been open about fighting multiple sclerosis, reportedly said that she remains hopeful for the future, and she tries to share that with people.
When she is not being a source of joy and hope for others, Blair has been busy giving nostalgic vibes to fans. Earlier this month, Blair and fellow actress Sarah Michelle Gellar received the "Best Kiss" award at the MTV Movie Awards: Greatest of All Time.
The pair had won the award for their steamy lip-lock in the 1992 teen romantic movie "Cruel Intentions." Still, instead of just taking the award, the two decided to reenact the kiss.
Blair and Gellar explained that they had been proud of the kiss, notably because it represented a fundamental shift at the time. Amongst other things, it encouraged people to question their sexuality and be true to themselves.
The two eventually reenacted the kiss. In contrast, it might not have been as steamy as the original, Blair and Gellar definitely still know how to rock a smooch.
