Celebrating Thanksgiving in 2020

Now that spooky season is over, the Nip Tuck team is looking forward to Thanksgiving! We love the gratitude-centered festivities, spending time with family, and eating lots of tasty food. Every year most of us travel to meet relatives or open up our homes to extended family. This year, the holidays will be different. With Covid cases on the rise and limited in-person interaction, Thanksgiving in 2020 will be a new experience. Check out some of the ways that people are still celebrating and making the holiday special.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thanksgiving with Immediate Family

Many people are choosing to stay home this year and observe the holiday with those that are closest to them – literally. Enjoying this time with your immediate household not only keeps everyone safe, but also eliminates the stress of travel. Everyone can stay in their comfy clothes truly relax. You also do not have to worry about cooking for a large group of people and the time-consuming cleanup that often follows.

Celebrating Alone

Although a traditional Thanksgiving is wonderful, there are no rules that dictate how the holiday should be celebrated. If you live alone and are staying home, having a special Thanksgiving “me” day is also an option. If you do not feel like cooking, you can support local restaurants and pick-up a hot holiday meal. Costco, Whole Foods, and other stores also offer holidays “feasts” that are available for pre-order. Pizza or your favorite foods are also options. You are celebrating alone this year – so eat whatever you want!

Virtually Celebrating the Holiday

Not being able to hug your extended family during this time does not deny you the opportunity to connect with them virtually! Thanks to apps like FaceTime, Zoom, and WhatsApp – you can still check in with your loved ones and wish them a very happy Thanksgiving. Take advantage of game apps such as Houseparty, Words with Friends, Yahtzee with Buddies to liven things up and virtually play a game or two.
