Thanksgiving Day
Nov 26 , 2020

2020 is a year we will certainly not forget. Across the globe, we have learned to live, work, and socialize during a pandemic that just isn’t letting up. We have just entered the holiday season with no end in sight to social distancing. In the United States, arguably the most popular annual holiday is upon us—Thanksgiving. The month of November is usually filled with planning, baking, cooking, travel, and gathering for Friendsgivings, Thanksgivings, hometown happy hours, and more.

Before starting brainstorming on ways to celebrate Thanksgiving during this unique year, check out these guidelines, it remind us which activities are low risk and which higher-risk activities we should avoid.

Keep it Fresh with an Outdoor Friendsgiving

The weather has definitely turned brisk and even cold in November, but for those able to host an outdoor gathering, this might be the perfect way to still connect with friends safely. Keep the invite list to only a few households and plan a casual picnic at a nearby park. Set up picnic blankets or tables at least six feet apart and for extra safety have everyone bring their own meals.

Take the initiative to start new traditions to your gathering. Perhaps you can incorporate an outdoor activity or sport into the day? Play no-touch hide and seek or bring along a Corn Hole set and each household can have their own bean bags. Kick the soccer ball back and forth between households. Wearing masks, washing hands, and maintaining your distance should keep these activities safe while being fun for everyone.

Bring Back the Virtual Happy Hours

Last spring as we all adjusted to the stay-at-home orders, Zoom happy hours were a popular way to stay connected to friends, family, and colleagues. Many, many months later, and after a workday filled with video calls, it’s no surprise that we are experiencing Zoom fatigue. This month, we recommend you make an exception and bring together your favorite colleagues, but with no meeting agenda. Or invite your college friends for a virtual catch up and reminisce on the days when you could be together! Perhaps Thanksgiving is a time that you usually get to see hometown friends that you aren’t in touch with by phone or text throughout the year.

New or To Go Dishes for Thanksgiving at Home

This year, the only way to stay low risk during your Thanksgiving celebration is to keep it small and within your own household. Of course, you have spent the past seven months or more with your household, so another meal together might not cause everyone to jump for joy. Get creative with this year’s Thanksgiving menu.

Whatever version of Thanksgiving celebrations you choose this year—outdoor, virtual, or small— take a moment for yourself and consider all you have to be grateful for. This year has definitely been unlike any other, and although all of us are enduring the pandemic together, many of us may have also dealt with health, financial, or employment hardships too. Finding a way to still connect with old friends, neighbors, colleagues, and family is important to remind you of all the ways people can support each other and that ultimately we are stronger together.

From all of us to all of you at Thanksgiving. Hope we can cooperate with our customers for more new projects in filed of retractable screen, pleated screen system and mosquito nets in the season of 2021.
