“We’re cancelling it this year, unfortunately, yeah. My family is in New Jersey and they’re really cracking down because it’s really spiking over there. So, keep the kids safe and just do without this year. We’ll cook at home for ourselves and do something on the phone. That’s about it, but actually, physically going to a Thanksgiving dinner? Not this year. We’ll just call and wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving. That’s all we can do. Hopefully, next year we’ll see this thing go away. I don’t know. Viruses never go away. They’re always going to be there. It depends on how our bodies adjust to it.”

“My plan for Thanksgiving is staying home because they cancelled. Yeah, my family cancelled it because they’re not having Thanksgiving, because it’s a big family so nobody’s getting together. We might have a little something, but it’s just me and my wife, and that’s it. We might buy a little turkey and cook it and that’s it. Yes, I’m disappointed because everything is shutting down again and it’s crazy. When is this going to stop, or when will they have a vaccine to cure everybody that’s sick? Millions of people are just falling down now. It’s horrible.”

“Of course, I will be with family. I’m going to go to my brother’s house, and I’m going to be with brothers and sisters. Yes, it’s going to be limited to a small family group. It’s not disappointing for me. I like big crowds, but I take it as it comes. I’m going to live my life normally. Whatever happens, happens. I won’t restrict myself. I could get hit by a car or, God forbid, you know? Death comes in different ways but it’s not going to stop me from living.”

“I think we should give the country back to the native Americans, as in the indigenous people of this land. It’s canceled. I’ll be with my husband and my cat. We normally travel to New Jersey. We might do ZOOM. They’ve been doing a lot of ZOOM lately. I hope we’re done with this by this time next year.”

“Well, this year is different because of the pandemic. During the summer, we thought, by now, we’d be back to normal, and winter is about to start and COVID is our main concern right now. Thanksgiving is always with family and friends. Every year, I invite people and they come over and get together at my family party. They live all over the city and some come from upstate, but so far this year, I didn’t invite anybody and I’m not thinking of inviting anyone, just my immediate family. Maybe I’ll watch TV and stay home.”
