It’s finally November, and that means Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away! Aside from the yummy feast of turkey, mashed potatoes, and pie, the reason why I love this holiday so much is because it’s a time of the year when we’re able to gather with all of our family and friends.
In light of the current pandemic, Thanksgiving may look a bit different, but there are still ways to celebrate with our loved ones while staying safe. Read on to see how you can adjust your festivities this year for a fun and healthy holiday.
- Host a Virtual Thanksgiving Dinner
Though we’re not able to physically be in the same place due to social distancing, we can still gather for a virtual Thanksgiving dinner. Everyone can prepare for their feasts in the comfort of their own homes before meeting at a scheduled time for a video-call dinner party. This allows us to celebrate safely, while also giving us a chance to catch up with family and friends during the holiday season.
- Have a Digital Cook-Off
On that note, the virtual meetup doesn’t have to be strictly confined to dinnertime. If you’re in for some friendly competition, host a digital cook-off session! Get together over Zoom or FaceTime and pick a recipe that you would all like to tackle on Thanksgiving. Then, proceed to outdo one another! After you’re done, try letting the members of your household do a taste test.
- Share What You’re Thankful For
And of course, we can’t forget to give thanks on Thanksgiving! As the name suggests, this holiday is all about showing appreciation for everyone and everything in our lives. An easy way to do this is to go around the room (both physical and virtual) and have everyone share one thing that they’re thankful for.
I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving! Stay safe and healthy, and don’t forget to indulge in all of the turkey and mashed potatoes that you can!
