Happy Thanksgiving if you’re reading this in the United States (or are a U.S. citizen elsewhere). If you’re not, then, well, “happy next Thursday.”
Pandemic Thanksgiving means just my wife, daughter, and me eating turkey at home while Zooming and FaceTiming relatives. Including my Mom and stepdad who are 45 minutes away in the suburbs, but it’s just too risky to spend hours together indoors right now. I hope that if you celebrate the holiday, you do so with similar safety, but that you feel accompanied.
It’s a rough start to what will be a rough winter in the northern hemisphere. As of this weekend, we’ve entered the 2 months of the year with the least daylight, and it’s all too noticeable. We should all make a point to go out for a walk each day while it’s light out. (I’ve been bad at this, so I’m writing this for me, too.) At least in 30 days, the days will start getting longer again.
