We’ve been through a lot this year and to say that 2020 has been a roller coaster ride is somewhat a gross understatement.
A lot of people have lost their jobs, many businesses have permanently shut down, and more than the loss of our livelihood, many people had died due to the COVID-19 pandemic. All the more reason to be grateful; don’t you think so, too? We are in good health and it does seem like we really are seeing the light at the end of this lengthy COVID-19 tunnel already.
Having said all that, celebrating Thanksgiving is quite the challenge this year as big family get-togethers, especially with those who do not live with us, is a huge no.
Thankfully, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has posted an updated guidance on how to navigate the Thanksgiving celebrations this year. CDC reminded us that “Gatherings with family and friends who do not live with you can increase the chances of getting or spreading COVID-19 or the flu.”
The health institute has a number of suggestions on how we can still observe Thanksgiving this year—celebrating it virtually, for one. And, according to CDC, the best way to protect ourselves is to postpone travel and stay at home, to “have a small outdoor meal with family and friends who live in your community.” Or, you can have food and gifts delivered to your family’s doorstep if you don’t live with them.
Anyway, do you prefer having a small Thanksgiving dinner with just your immediate family or do you prefer attending a large dinner gathering with many of your extended family and friends? Why?
