This post was created to see if people feel comfortable attending Thanksgiving with family or not. It was not meant to judge anyone. However if anyone is meeting with family, two weeks later we would like to know if anyone came down with Covid because all the experts say some will.
I don't know if you read about the family that got together to celebrate one of the kid's birthday. There were around 20 people and 13 came down with Covid and one is hospitalized.
I haven't seen that, but I don't watch the news anymore.
I'm comfortable with it. For us, on my husband's side, it isn't any different than dinner at the in-law's every Sunday. We go, 1 or 2 of his siblings and their spouses/kid (only one other than ours) come, his aunt, grandma, and whatever of his cousins are in. Usually 12-14 on Sunday, probably 16-18 for Thanksgiving, depending on who else is going to see the other side of their family. We don't get together as often with my sister and her family, but we do see them at least once a month or so, and that will be a group of 8. Nobody will be flying, and most of us are local; hubby's sister lives about 2 hours away but visits every few weeks. 1 of his siblings and 2 cousins are out of state and aren't coming due to work schedules.
