    We just got our holiday 'guidelines' and one iron-clad rule download today.

    The rule: No gatherings of more than 5 people that are not members of a single household.
    If you choose to go to someone else's house there can only be 5 total - guests and hosts included.

    Normal guidelines
    Wear a mask
    6ft distancing
    Wash hands

    The following preventive measures are also recommended:
    ● Bring your own food, drinks, plates, cups, and utensils.
    ● Avoid going in and out of the areas where food is being prepared or handled, such as in
    the kitchen.

    Consider Other Thanksgiving Activities
    Host a virtual Thanksgiving meal with friends and family who don’t live with you.
    ● Schedule a time to share a meal together virtually.
    ● Have people share recipes and show their turkey, dressing, or other dishes they prepared.
    ● Watch movies, sports, or other television shows at home.
    ● Find a fun game to play.
    ● Safely prepare traditional dishes and deliver them to family and neighbors in a way that
    does not involve contact with others (for example, leave them on the porch).
    ● Participate in a gratitude activity, like writing down things you are grateful for and
    sharing with your friends and family.

    This could be the best Thanksgiving ever!
    No annoying relatives allowed - can't bring their out-of-control kids to wreck the house
    Everyone required to open up their phones and proceed to ignore all others in the room.
    Make and eat the food you want to eat, don't touch anyone else's
    No one forced to try Auntie's Meatloaf Surprise.
    If you want to give food - throw it on their porch like a UPS delivery van (don't stop or slow down).

    As good as all this sounds I can't wait to see what they come up with for Christmas.

    We've pretty much decided to just cancel it. Same thing probably for Christmas, too.

    I like your last paragraph..... so true. I'm gonna really get a lotta stuff done without all the stuff going on and preparations needed.

    Thanksgiving is cancelled for my family also. Parents are staying in Florida and my sister and I are doing our own thing. Gun season starts tomorrow so Thanksgiving depends on if they fill all their tags or not. In my perfect world this includes all the boys home (love) and hunting, me preparing a turkey dinner then everyone relaxing with some bar games, deer stories and beer after. Of course, plans could be derailed if someone kills a deer before dinner, then it's, skip the sit down meal and go straight to the beer.

    At any rate, even though I miss my parents, my sister and I are secretly excited to do our thing for the first time in our lives. It will be only the second turkey we have each been "allowed" to make. Our mother never allows us to host so we are pretty excited, just don't tell my mom LOL

    we normally just have the kids and grand kids so shouldn't be an issue but with that said and not to start a long drawn out thread of what's right and what's wrong but...
    my house ...my rules
    (also agree with Gino, that last paragraph ...good stuff right there..haha)

    hope everyone can enjoy the day and enjoy their family
    happy thanksgiving

    I'm going to have an anxiety attack for Thanksgiving. It's already starting. Had plans, now most likely will have to cancel, haven't fully decided yet (waiting on intel)... Quite frankly, I'm getting depressed. :(

    We will have our usual family affair. More than 10 less than 20 My family are not participating in this policing policy. So we will enjoy our normal life.

    Gonna shove a turkey in the smoker early Thursday, help cook a few things, and eat like I normally would on Thanksgiving. Just with way fewer people, unfortunately.

    Since this ain't a law, it won't be followed.

    We voluntarily will limit our gathering to one of our son's family of 3 and Zoom with the rest. Wouldn't be followed by many regardless of it being a law or not. In fact, making it a law would probably make it worse. Even FB and Twit wouldn't be able to suppress reports of police entering private residences to enforce, and I suspect many cops would refuse to enforce anyway. In the U.S., if you want people to behave a certain way, you have to convince them it is the right thing to do.

    Following the lead of our Governor and state legislators, We are not changing anything. It will be a normal Thanksgiving followed by a Mrs. and Daughter in a flurry of Christmas shopping (24 hours straight) depending on what is open and not and while they are shopping I will probably go play poker at one of the Indian casinos since they can operate indoors.

    You've probably mentioned it before, but curious why your location is showing China? VPN? Anyway happy Thanksgiving wherever it is.
