For most of us, Thanksgiving is going to look a little different this year. But whether that means a smaller gathering, a virtual celebration over Zoom, or a meal with immediate family only, the meaning behind the holiday hasn't changed.
In fact, taking the opportunity to take stock of what we have, express gratitude for our loved ones, and appreciate the things that bring value to our daily lives is something we could all use right now.
While it makes sense for many of us to scale back our usual Thanksgiving Day plans this year, it's still worth marking the occasion in our homes and at our tables. For your celebratory meal, maybe that means roasting a chicken for four instead of a turkey for twelve, and choosing three favourite side dishes rather than cooking up a whole harvest. But even with fewer guests, take the time to set the table with your prettiest dishes, and add some decorative touches to your space. In other words: Host yourself — you deserve it!
