How to celebrate Thanksgiving in 2020?

Thanksgiving Day is a national holiday in the United States, and Thanksgiving 2020 will take place on Thursday, November 26, 2020.

But how to celebrate safely and smoothly in 2020?

As CDC explains, the safest way to celebrate Thanksgiving is to celebrate at home with the people you live with, as gatherings with family and friends who do not live with you can increase the chances of getting or spreading the flu and the plandemic.

But are you really going to follow these nasty rules? Here a few guidelines to visit your friends and family during Thanksgiving.

How to travel safely during Thanksgiving 2020?

Travel may increase your chance of getting and spreading COVID-19. So one of the best advices is to stay home to protect yourself and others this year.

But if you don’t want to stay home alone, ask you the following questions:

  • Are you, someone in your household, or someone you will be visiting at increased risk for getting very sick from COVID-19?
  • Are cases high or increasing in your community or your destination?
  • Are hospitals in your community or your destination overwhelmed with patients who have COVID-19?
  • Does your home or destination have requirements or restrictions for travelers?
  • During the 14 days before your travel, have you or those you are visiting had close contact with people they don’t live with?
  • Do your plans include traveling by bus, train, or air which might make staying 6 feet apart difficult?
  • Are you traveling with people who don’t live with you?

If the answer to any of these questions is “yes,” talk with the people you live with and your family and friends about the risks of traveling for Thanksgiving.

Rules to follow if you do travel for Thanksgiving

  • Check travel restrictions before you go.
  • Get your flu shot before you travel.
  • Always wear a mask in public settings, when using public transportation, and when around people who you don’t live with.
  • Stay at least 6 feet apart from anyone who does not live with you.
  • Wash your hands often or use hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your mask, eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Bring extra supplies, such as masks and hand sanitizer.
  • Know when to delay your travel.

I wouldn’t do point 2 but it is up to you to follow the CDC advices.

How to make Thanksgiving safer?

1. Wear a mask

Although celebrating virtually or with the people you live with is the safest choice for Thanksgiving 2020, you still can attend a gathering. Here a few ‘rules’ to make your celebration safer:

  • Bring your own food, drinks, plates, cups, and utensils.
  • Wear a mask and safely store your mask while eating and drinking.
  • Avoid going in and out of the areas where food is being prepared or handled, such as in the kitchen.
  • Use single-use options, like salad dressing and condiment packets, and disposable items like food containers, plates, and utensils.

Rules to follow if you host a Thanksgiving gathering

If you have planned to invite friends and family at home this Thanksgiving, here some tips to make your party safer:

  • Have a small outdoor meal with family and friends who live in your community.
  • Limit the number of guests.
  • Have conversations with guests ahead of time to set expectations for celebrating together.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and items between use.
  • If celebrating indoors, bring in fresh air by opening windows and doors, if possible. Use a window fan in one of the open windows to blow air out of the window. This will pull fresh air in through the other open windows.
  • Limit the number of people in food preparation areas.
  • Have guests bring their own food and drink.
  • If sharing food, have one person serve food and use single-use options, like plastic utensils.

Consider Other Thanksgiving Activities

1. A virtual Thanksgiving meal

  • Schedule a time to share a meal together virtually.
  • Have people share recipes and show their turkey, dressing, or other dishes they prepared.

2. Play games with people in your household

  • Watch Thanksgiving Day parades, sports, and movies at home.
  • Find a fun game to play.

3. Shopping

  • Shop online sales the day after Thanksgiving and days leading up to the winter holidays.
  • Use contactless services for purchased items, like curbside pick-up.
  • Shop in open air markets staying 6 feet away from others and wear a mask.

4. Other Activities

Help people in need during Thanksgiving

  • Safely prepare traditional dishes and deliver them to family and neighbors in a way that does not involve contact with others (for example, leave them on the porch).
  • Participate in a gratitude activity, like writing down things you are grateful for and sharing with your friends and family.

  1. CENTCOM Announces Deployment Of B-52 Bombers To Middle East
    Sunday, 22 Nov 2020 01:24

    The United States Central Command, CENTCOM announced Saturday that B-52H ‘Stratofortress’ bombers are being deployed in the Middle East “to deter aggression and reassure U.S. partners and allies.”

    The news comes as The New York Times recently reported that after the US elections President Donald Trump discussed with officials the option of attacking Iran and reportedly was dissuaded from doing so.

    On Friday November 20, US Special Representative for Iran and Venezuela Elliot Abrams warned “Iran and its proxies” they would be “sorry” for any “military activities and terrorist activities that kill Americans.” He was speaking after a trip to Israel, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. At the same time the Associated Press reported that Iran’s Qods force commander Esmail Gha’ani asked proxy forces in Iraq not to engage in any provocations during the remainder of Trump’s term in office.

    CENTCOM said in its statement that “aircrews assigned to the 5th Bomb Wing, Minot Air Force Base, ND conducted a short-notice, long-range mission into the Middle East on November 21”. It added that the mission demonstrated the military’s ability to deploy airpower anywhere in the world on short notice.

    In May the US had also announced the deployment of B-52 bombers to Qatar, a US ally, but today’s statement says, “The last U.S. long-range bomber presence in the Middle East was in early 2020.”

    The United Nations International Atomic Energy Agency reported this week that Iran has moved a cascade of advanced uranium enrichment centrifuges underground at its main nuclear site in Natanz, central Iran.

    Will There Be A Military Escalation With Iran In Trump’s Final Weeks?

    Citing Iraqi officials, Associated Press has reported from Baghdad that Iran has instructed allies across the Middle East not to provoke the United States in the final weeks of the Trump administration. A ‘high alert’ warning was delivered this week by Esmail Ghaani, head of Iran’s Quds Force.

    With his court challenges to the US presidential election floundering, President Donald Trump has barely appeared in public and is becoming more unpredictable as the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden looms on January 20. The New York Times reported on November 17 that Trump had been talked out of attacking Iran’s nuclear facilities. Just days after the November 3 election, Trump “terminated” Defense Secretary Mark Esper.

    On Thursday [November 19], an adviser to Iran’s supreme leader warned in an Associated Press interview that any American attack on Iran could provoke a “full-fledged war” in the region. “We are not after starting a war,” said Hossein Dehghan, a former defense minister and ex-officer in the Revolutionary Guards.

    While Trump has announced troop withdrawals from Iraq and Afghanistan before mid-January − to 2,500 each, from 3,000 in Iraq and 4,500 in Afghanistan – the US retains wide options for military strikes. Trump officials claim their latest sanctions on Iran will stymie Biden in efforts to re-enter Iran’s 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, a deal Trump abandoned in 2018 and for which he harbors deep distaste as the work of predecessor President Barack Obama.

    Iraq is a perennial flashpoint between the US and Iraq. In January, Trump authorized a missile attack that killed Iranian general Qasem Soleimani, Iraqi militia leader Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, and nine others. The Trump administration threatened in September to close the US embassy unless the Iraqi government stopped insurgents’ attacks.

    Just hours after Ghaani delivered Iran’s message in Baghdad − while he was still in Iraq − Katyusha rockets were fired at the fortified Green Zone, which houses the US embassy, killing a child and wounding five civilians.

  2. Iran’s allies on high alert in Trump’s final weeks in office
    QASSIM ABDUL-ZAHRA and SAMYA KULLAB, Associated Press
    Nov. 20, 2020
    Updated: Nov. 20, 2020 6:12 p.m.
    World War 3 is reshaping our futue?
    Middle East to be on high alert and avoid provoking tensions with the U.S. that could give an outgoing Trump administration cause to launch attacks in the U.S. president’s final weeks in office, Iraqi officials have said.

    The request — delivered by a senior Iranian general to allies in Baghdad this week — reflects the growing regional anxiety over President Donald Trump’s unpredictable behavior and the uncertainty in the chaotic transition period until President-elect Joe Biden takes over in two months.

    Iran’s allies have collectively welcomed Trump’s election defeat. Under his presidency, tensions with Iran escalated, reaching fever pitch at the beginning of the year with the U.S. airstrike that killed Iran’s top general, Qassim Soleimani, at the Baghdad airport. Iran launched a ballistic missile attack in response to the fatal drone strike, targeting U.S. soldiers in Iraq and wounding dozens.

    Trump also unilaterally withdrew America in 2018 from Iran’s nuclear deal with world powers, meant to prevent it from developing nuclear weapons, and re-imposed punishing sanctions on Iran, crippling its economy.

    Iran has since abandoned all limits on its uranium enrichment program, even as the deal’s other international partners have tried unsuccessfully to salvage it. The incoming Biden administration has stated plans to rejoin or renegotiate the 2015 nuclear accord.

    But there is growing concern over what Trump, who is refusing to concede the election, might do in the last days of his presidency — including a potential strike on America’s enemies abroad. On Thursday, an adviser to Iran’s supreme leader warned in an interview with The Associated Press that any American attack on Iran could set off a “full-fledged war” in the region.

    “We don’t welcome war. We are not after starting a war,” said Hossein Dehghan, who served in Iran’s paramilitary Revolutionary Guard before becoming a defense minister under President Hassan Rouhani.

    The concern does not appear to be rooted in anything concrete — Trump has, in fact, ordered a drawdown in U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan to be completed by mid-January — but rather in general nervousness about the unpredictability of Trump’s actions. His firing of Defense Secretary Mark Esper two days after the election triggered a flurry of speculation about whether it was related to a broader plan to strike abroad.

    Iraq, where the U.S.-Iran rivalry has chiefly played out, is seen as a potential arena. Frequent attacks against the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad in recent months led a frustrated Trump administration to threaten to close the mission, a move that sparked a diplomatic crisis and diplomatic back channel messaging that led to an informal truce a few weeks ahead of the U.S. election.

    With two months to go until a Biden administration takes over, Iranian Gen. Esmail Ghaani, head of the Guard’s expeditionary Quds Force, delivered Tehran’s request during a meeting with Iranian-backed Iraqi militia factions and Shiite politicians in Baghdad this week, according to two senior Iraqi Shiite politicians who attended the meetings in Baghdad.

    The message: Stand down to avoid giving Trump the opportunity to initiate a fresh tit-for-tat round of violence.

    And to the Iraqi Shiite paramilitaries: Be calm and cease attacks for now against American presence in Iraq.

    However, if there was a U.S. aggression by the Trump administration, Iran’s response would “be in line with the type of strike,” one of the Iraqi politicians cited Ghaani as saying.

    An Iraqi government official also confirmed Ghaani’s meetings with Iranian-backed factions in Iraq this week. All Iraqi officials spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the private meetings.

    Meanwhile, in Lebanon, the leader of the Iran-backed militant Hezbollah group, Hasan Nasrallah, warned followers and allies to be vigilant during Trump’s remaining weeks in office.

    “All of us … should be on high alert in these next two months so that it passes peacefully,” Nasrallah said in televised remarks earlier this month even as he urged followers to “be prepared to face any danger, aggression or harm” and to respond in kind “if the US or Israel’s follies go that far.”

    But only hours after Ghaani delivered Iran’s message in Baghdad — and while he was still in Iraq — a barrage of Katyusha rockets were fired at the Iraqi capital’s heavily fortified Green Zone, landing a few hundred meters (yards) from the U.S. Embassy. A few of the rockets that landed just outside the Green Zone killed a child and wounded five civilians.

    The attack — contrary to instructions to avoid escalation — could indicate potential disagreement within militia ranks, or a deliberate plan by the factions to offer mixed messages and keep their intentions ambiguous.

    A little-known militia group, Ashab al-Kahf, believed to have links with the powerful Kataib Hezbollah, claimed responsibility for the rocket attack. For its part, Kataib Hezbollah denied it had carried out the barrage, and claimed the truce initiated in October was still in place.

    That claim was countered by Qais al-Khazali, the head of the powerful Iran-aligned Asaib Ahl al-Haq militia group, who said in a televised interview on Thursday that the truce had ended.
    This regime of Iran gives money to all Terrorists and is null and void and any PR weather is Donal J Trump or Joe Biden any deals with this regime not acceptable. This regime has taken hostages and still has UK and USA citizens and Australians citizens as hostages in evin prison fema camp.

  3. Yes to Peace full protests no to Shitoulution USA!Learn it from Middle East Beirut. Or Persia. We must all think of USA and love and appreciate each others.

  4. Met a ” old Karen ” out at the Wallymart. She beefed me on no mask.

    Lol, she had an 02 tank, so I put the mask back on. Felt sorry she was so brainwashed and frightened. When she left, I took it back off. I even showed the mask police at the door a picture ( on my phone) of the back of the box on ear loop masks, where it says, will not protect against virus. Lol.

  5. Vengeance – Nasruddin style

    One day, Mullah Nasruddin heard a knock on his door. He opened the door and found his daughter standing there crying with a bruise on her eye. “What happened?” Nasruddin asked. She said that she got into a fight with her husband and he beat her. To his, Nasruddin responded by slapping his daughter in the face. He closed the door and quickly called her husband. When he picked up the phone, he told his daughter’s husband, “I heard about what you did, but I’ve had my vengeance – because you hit my daughter, I slapped your wife, take that!”.

    Deductive reasoning

    – “How old are you, Mullah?”, a boy asked.
    – Mullah Nasruddin responded, “3 years older than my brother”.
    – “How do you know that?” the boy asked.
    -“Reasoning!”, said Mullah Nasruddin. “Last year, I heard my brother tell someone that I was 2 years older than him. A year has passed. Now, I am older by one year. I shall soon be old enough to be his grandfather!”
    More useful

    One day Mullah Nasruddin entered his favorite teahouse and declared, “The moon is more useful than the sun”. An old man asked, “Why Mullah?” Mullah Nasruddin replied, “Because we need the light more during the night than during the day”.
    Have a nice day !
