Wish You a Merry Burning Christmas Tree

On Nov 12, 2019, a Christmas tree was set on fire during the protest in Hong Kong. Then, all universities in Hong Kong closed, people were arrested; three month later, the pandemic took over the world.

So, I wish you a Merry Burning Christmas Tree from human being’s last celebration before the apocalypse begins.
