Thanksgiving 2020 – A Chance to Purge Traditions

/

Thanksgiving 2020 is going to look different, but if you play your cards right it could be an opportunity. 

To quote Rahm Emanuel, “Never allow a good crisis go to waste. It’s an opportunity to do the things you once thought were impossible.” 

Thanksgiving 2020 is definitely a chance to do things you once thought were impossible.  The uncle you can’t stand—out.  In-laws, way too risky.  Sister with the annoying toddlers, oops sorry.   Your aunt who insists on bringing her incontinent dog—nope!  

Other traditions are on the table (pun intended) too.  Do you really need to make squash?  Brussel sprouts?  Canned cranberry gelatinous sludge?   

Think of some of the traditions you can finally put to rest: cleaning out the fridge to make room for the too-big turkey (those leftovers are safe for another year).  This year you don’t have to pretend you like to jog in cold weather during the Turkey Trot.  Another feature: you don’t have to watch a football game featuring the Detroit Lions, thank God.  You can skip Black Friday too, no more fighting the crowds to save $3 on socks.  

This year you can finally have a Thanksgiving you always dreamed of, just enjoying dinner with people you’ve had every single meal with for the last 10 months. 

Happy Thanksgiving!
