Much has happened over the past 18 months, and we have all been working hard to adjust and survive in the new normal. BEST believes that the fact that we have all made it this far is something worth being thankful for. It’s so easy to get wrapped up in the busyness of each day that we often forget to be thankful and appreciative for all the wonderful things in our lives. BEST sees Thanksgiving as more than just a holiday; it’s an opportunity to ponder the lessons we’ve learned from the previous year, think about how we can spread happiness in our communities, and to look back at all the great memories and good people who came into our lives.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, this year’s Thanksgiving will likely look very different than previous years. The safest way to celebrate Thanksgiving is at home with the people you live with (in order to celebrate with the lowest risk of spreading disease) and to keep gatherings as small as possible. If the weather is good where you live on Sunday, you can even consider bringing your gathering outside to ensure proper air circulation and further decrease your and your guests’ risk. Lastly, it’s important to ensure that you and everyone at your gathering is fully vaccinated.
We hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving and stay safe this holiday long weekend!
