Thanksgiving Social Distancing Edition

Thanksgiving: Social Distancing Edition

Thanksgiving this year is a little different. Before you start carving the turkey, check out these social distancing holiday tips.

Happy (almost) Thanksgiving! We are super excited to eat delicious food, talk to some amazing people, and just show everyone how thankful we are this year.

Unfortunately, COVID-19 is still around, so we cannot celebrate the way we usually do. Luckily enough, we came up with different ideas to have a socially distant Thanksgiving. Keep reading to learn more!

Keep it Small

Every year we look forward to the family gathering. We love hanging out with aunts, uncles, cousins, and family friends that we have not seen in a while, but this year you will need to hold out on having a grand get-together. Instead, Thanksgiving needs to stay small this year. Celebrate the holiday with close family members like immediate family (parents and siblings). The fewer people you have around, the safer you are this year. Thanksgiving is all about being thankful for one another, and keeping it small is one of the ways you can say that you are grateful for everyone who could not attend.

Have it Outdoors

If you do decide to have a little more people over, then opt for an outdoor Thanksgiving. This way you can separate tables and keep people semi-away from each other. Plus, the autumn breeze is perfect for this holiday. You can even set up distancing games and activities. Also, prepare for a system to let one table at a time to go get food. You want everyone to have a good time, but you also want everyone to stay safe.

Turn it into a Potluck

Since Thanksgiving is smaller this year, there is no need to create a huge feast. And make the holiday cooking easier on you by asking each attendee to bring a dish — potluck style. Asking everyone to bring one dish cuts down on your time and costs, which means you can take that extra money and spend it during Black Friday!

Wear Masks

Even though you are visiting family, you should still stay safe. That is why you need to wear a mask when you arrive. You can still talk and see others with a mask on, so you do not have to worry about it getting in the way. This is an important step, especially if you are visiting the elderly, young children, or people with pre-existing health issues. And since Thanksgiving is also all about the eating, you can take off your mask once you are sitting down. But do not forget to put it back on after the meal!

Carry Hand Sanitizer

Just like wearing a mask carrying hand sanitizer is crucial as well. Between touching others, being in someone else’s home, and everyone grabbing utensils to pick up food, you will come across a lot of germs. And while we do not want to think anyone is sick, it is better to be safe.

Have a Virtual Thanksgiving

The safest way to celebrate Thanksgiving this year is to have a virtual party. This allows everyone to be safe at home while still chatting and eating with everyone. Each group can create a small meal and sit in front of a computer or phone and just chit chat and enjoy each other’s company. You also can do fun virtual games and express what you are thankful for and why. You do not need to be near each other to still celebrate what this holiday is all about.

We hope that you have a fun and safe Thanksgiving. Eat a lot of delicious food, and remember to wear a mask and carry hand sanitizer if you do go out.
