Monday is Thanksgiving, so it’s a long weekend here in this province. I decided to take Friday off as well, making it a four-day long weekend. In the past I’ve normally don’t use a vacation day to extend long weekends but for reasons that should be clear, I have a surplus of vacation days currently. I have about six weeks of vacation saved up, so I can spare an extra day.
I imagine Thanksgiving will be different for many people this year. In fact, I hope it will necessarily be different for anyone who has been used to large family gatherings for Thanksgiving. My sister and her husband will be staying on Vancouver Island this weekend. I might have a regular dinner with my parents on Monday but I’m not sure at this point. The goal will be to keep everyone safe this Thanksgiving, not to eat turkey. I am ok with that this year.
