We all probably agree that it will not be too sad to usher out 2020. Almost everything looks and feels different this year, including holiday celebrations.
Maybe you're forgoing the packed house with a sit-down meal and only having your immediate family members. Or, perhaps you'll be spending the holiday alone or with your furry best pal. Whatever the case, there are ways to make your Thanksgiving feel festive and special, even while social distancing. You might even find that your reimagined Thanksgiving celebration is worth repeating and could lead to new traditions that last for years to come.
So put your thinking cap on…Here are some ideas to get you started on reinventing your holiday celebration
Decorate for the season A surefire way to get in the spirit of the season is to decorate. Even if no one is coming over this year, it's a fact that your surroundings have much to do with your mood #fengshui. So clean like company is coming and pull out the decorations!
Watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade The show will go on. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio confirmed that the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade will be held virtually without a crowd. So gather round with family, pets, or solo with a cuddly blanket. You don't want to miss this once-in-a-lifetime (fingers crossed) virtual event.
Go on a walk or bike ride Get outside (with your mask)! Visit a park or take a walk in the neighborhood. Enjoy some fresh air with your family, your dog, or on your own. Maybe pull the bike out and take a spin and enjoy the Fall foliage and enjoy a little exercise before feasting.
Make it together Get everyone into the act. Cooking together can be a memorable and fun activity. Have each person pick their part of the meal that they are responsible for, from selecting the dish to actually being the lead in preparing it…with everyone's help.
Host a virtual party Get the entire family together on Zoom say something for which you are thankful. Or have a virtual cocktail with friends that you are thankful to have.
Whether or not you plan to celebrate solo or invite some guests, holiday cleaning should be on your to-do list. With most people spending more time at home, it is essential that a home's healthy environment be kept up. Don't underestimate the importance of clean textiles such as carpet, area rugs, upholstery, wood floors, and tile.
