SJ’s Strategies for Thanksgiving During a Pandemic
Thanksgiving this year is likely to look a lot different for many people. Here are a few tips for making the most of it:
- Keep up traditions as much as possible and translate ones into virtual versions as feasible. This may help create some feelings of normalcy.
- Add something new in such as a family/friend virtual trivia game on Kahoot.
- Use breakout rooms that mimic table assignments for portions of a virtual Thanksgiving get together.
- Expand your celebration virtually to include relatives and friends who live far away who you normally would not get to spend the holiday with.
