5 Fun Ways to Celebrate Thanksgiving

5 Fun Ways to Celebrate Thanksgiving

Oct 05, 2020Takasa Team

 

It’s no secret that COVID-19 has upended the way we celebrate holidays. With Thanksgiving just around the corner, we’re all wondering the same thing: How do we celebrate this festive day of food and company in a safe and enjoyable way?

Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! While things might look a little different this year, here are a few simple and creative ways to enjoy the perfect Thanksgiving. 

 

Host a Dinner Outdoors

According to global health experts, it’s far safer to socialize outdoors than indoors. While the weather can be unpredictable, it’s still possible to enjoy a delicious Thanksgiving feast outside, even if the sky is a bit grey! 


If you have a backyard or patio, create a dreamy dinner spread with all your favourite trappings. Grab your favourite tableware and cutlery, hang up some fairy lights and enjoy a magical meal. For extra warmth, light your favourite eco-friendly candles to create the perfect ambience for you and your guests. We LOVE this Silk Tonka Bean, Jasmine and Coconut candle from Mala the Brand. Just remember to space out your seating and keep your gathering intimate (no more than 6 guests from your COVID “bubble”).


Safety Essentials:

- This year, skip the shared drink pitchers and serve beverages individually or away from the table
- Keep sanitizer on hand
- Wash your hands frequently in between handling food
- Rinse fruits and veggies thoroughly before serving
- Wipe down surfaces frequently 

     

     

    Have a Picnic 

     

    No backyard? Head to your favourite local park! Pack your favourite eats, a scrumptious charcuterie board and your go-to wines for a truly Pinterest-worthy picnic. If you live in Vancouver, there is no shortage of stunning spots to enjoy a meal with a view.

    Visit a Pumpkin Patch

    We’ve all had to get a bit creative with our socializing this year, but that’s where the fun is! Instead of hosting a typical Thanksgiving meal, why not take the family pumpkin-picking? Not only is it a great way to support your local farmers, it’s also the quintessential Fall activity. 


    Even better, bring the camera and snap some gorgeous photos. Be sure to sanitize frequently and stay socially-distanced! 



    Skip the Cooking and Support a Local Restaurant

    There’s no better time to support small businesses. The restaurant industry has been hit hard by the pandemic, so why not skip the cooking this year and treat yourself to a feast, courtesy of your favourite local restaurant?


    Ordering out is a great way to support the community AND take the cooking off your plate. It’s also safer, as each guest will have their own individual containers. 


    Go for a Hike

    Taking care of our physical and mental health is more important than ever. Instead of lounging with some Netflix, awaken the senses with an invigorating Thanksgiving Day hike.


    Spending time in nature is not only vital to our health, it’s also the perfect opportunity to give thanks and recharge the body and mind. 


    British Columbians are spoiled for choice when it comes to hiking hotspots. Whether you’re going with a partner or with a handful of friends and family, remember to pack the essentials and stay safe! 


    There you have it! What are you thankful for this year?
