Let’s face it. This years Thanksgiving is going to be completely different than any other year. We know everyone will be missing not seeing your favourite uncle who drinks a little too much at the dinner and your in-laws snide remarks about your appetizer. Oh and don’t forget about your parents arguing over if the turkey is cooked enough cause no one wants it to be too dry. Just kidding, well if you are missing that then props to you. For everyone else, lets switch up Thanksgiving traditions this year and maybe make some new ones within your bubble.
