We were asked our Thanksgiving plans.

We intend to cook a huge turkey, have homemade everything from cranberry sauce to pie and more than the table can comfortably hold, have more loved ones than the table can comfortably seat, and have the time of our lives in one great big memorable celebration of all that blesses us and all those we love.

Next year. When we can also give thanks for all of us having been vaccinated.

So, yeah. The two of us and all the screen time with loved ones we can get. There is no responsible alternative. None.

100% right. We did this for Canadian Thanksgiving in October and will do it again for American Thanksgiving…and beyond. The love and good food can still be at the table, even if the guests are only there via zoom.

Every giving of thanks is important, no matter the size or scope. So zoom it up at mealtime on thanksgiving and have a show and tell of what’s on every (little) table.
Next year, we hope, will be better!

I wish more people realized this. I’m getting more and more worried.

You are so correct, it is the only responsible thing to do. Our governor decided as a state we need to have all restaurants go back to only take-out service, gyms etc closed, for the next four weeks. He also said that no one is to have Thanksgiving dinner with anyone outside of their immediate household, or any other meal for the next four weeks. Four weeks equals two generations of the virus cycle, so any less amount of time defeats Tanya chance of getting ahead of it. Here’s hoping people take him seriously and follow up.

any less amount of time defeats *any* chance
