Much like everything else, thanksgiving in 2020 is going to look very different. Here are some tips to get you through this festive season with ease.
- Consider a virtual gathering or a small outdoor gathering: This year has pushed us into a never experienced before the digital era. Nine months into the pandemic, and you have probably already had all your meetings, birthday parties, dinners, happy hours, and more virtually. Your platform options are endless – Zoom, Google Hangouts, Microsoft Teams, and more. You can make the whole virtual party more interesting with themes, games, etc. If you prefer meeting people in person, keep your gatherings small and socially distanced to be safe.
- Order Thanksgiving Dinner to Go: Although thanksgiving is all about being thankful and sharing a meal with the family,2020 has been all about being cautious and safe. Continue with this theme and consider a to-go shared meal from your favorite restaurant instead of making a meal at home whether you have a virtual or socially distanced party.
- Play Games: One thing that can make any party enjoyable is joint activities. You can play a plethora of games, whether you decide on a Zoom party or a socially distanced get-together. You can have name tags, themes, and much more to keep it engaging.
- Minimize or eliminate alcohol: Sharing a few bottles of wine around the table may be a Thanksgiving tradition, but CDC advises against the ritual this year, asserting alcohol a high-risk activity since it clouds judgment. If you are planning to stick with a virtual celebration, guests can, of course, enjoy their liquor at the comfort of their home.
