There was little doubt that this year’s Wassailfest was not going to survive the 2020 pandemic. The only question was when the city would announce its inevitable cancellation. 

That happened late last week, and while it sparked a familiar outburst of anger from some in our community, it remained the only reasonable response to a virus that has killed 120 people in Comal County and  put so many in our hospitals over the summer months that administrators from CHRISTUS and Resolute both made public appeals to people to follow health guidance.
