A Blue Christmas for 2020 from the X-Files?

As much as I don't like 'The X-Files' as a  series (and I'm only halfway through watching them all) I did find
this stand alone episode rather fitting for a 2020 viewing.
Yeah, I know that Fox was speaking about the Spanish Flu and not Covid 19, but the mood is still similar in terms of the feelings of hopelessness and loneliness throughout the world.
Although in Australia things don't seem that bad compared to most of what the rest of the planet is going through at the moment, and even live theatre is back with tickets to 'A Christmas Carol' going on sale.
I saw this play last year and it was really well done -
Chilling Charles Dickens Stories?
And as if Christmas isn't a mental strain in the best of times, 2020 will certainly be a test.
And if you voted for Trump, you are really in for a blue Christmas next year:-)
