My Thanksgiving Day here by myself was very quiet. Instead of being in Madrid or Sacramento with one of my daughters, I was home alone. We talked via WhatsApp, which I enjoyed and appreciated.
It’s Giving Tuesday, the day that follows Thanksgiving on Thursday, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday. It’s designated for giving to charities and organizations.
Cyber Monday used to be the leftovers from Black Friday. However, it’s becoming one of the biggest shopping day of the year – if not the biggest.
It’s a strange Thanksgiving this year, sitting at home by myself eating my turkey dinner rather than being in Madrid or Sacramento with one of my daughters. However, by staying home, I’m increasing the changes that I’ll be alive next summer to visit them.
Don't travel for Thanksgiving, officials advise, but if you're traveling anyway, here are the safest states
Families often gather for Thanksgiving, but this year, due to the pandemic, things are different. In order to minimize virus transmission and promote safety, families and friends should choose smaller, separate dinners connected by video calls, whether by choice or because of state regulations.
The pandemic is really changing things for Thanksgiving this week. I gave up in March any idea of going to Madrid or Sacramento where my daughters live with their families for the holidays. My hope is we can visit next year.
The holidays may be different during the pandemic because family gatherings may be smaller or people may be visiting virtually. However, it’s still important to protect yourself from possible dangers associated with holiday trees, candles, cooking fires, and unsafe toys.
To help you make the best choices for your Black Friday shopping, you need to know what to buy and what not to buy. Even on the biggest sales holiday of the year, not every deal is a good deal.
With the pandemic, many local holiday markets and craft fairs have moved online. Scammers are creating phony copycat events that charge for admission and steal your credit card information.
Our governor, Jay Inslee, shut down many of Washington state’s activities again Monday to try to slow the spread of the coronavirus. One of the recommendations? Cancel Thanksgiving plans.
