Reimagine Thanksgiving During COVID
n tirelessly relentless fashion, we’ve all had to adjust and pivot over the last several months, trading in our cubicles for home offices and our classrooms for dining room tables. 2020 has been the year of COVID and quarantine, and one that seems to simultaneously be flying by and dragging on. Regardless of which side your feelings fall, it’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving is just days away.
Thanksgiving is often marked by tradition – gathering for food, football, and time with friends and family. However, many people aren’t gathering in groups out of an abundance of caution. While your old traditions are temporarily put on hold, this year presents you with the opportunity to introduce new traditions. Here are a few ideas and ways you can celebrate the holiday this year while creating new traditions for years to come.
A virtual meal together
Another day, another virtual get together. This time though, have everyone joining prepare (or purchase) their favorite meal to enjoy while chatting. Then next year, when we’re hopefully able to safely gather, have everyone bring this same meal in a shareable size for all to enjoy. Suddenly, a new tradition is born!
