Default Holiday gatherings

Hi VT

I haven't posted for a long time. Life is going okay. I still live with my uncle's family while my mom battles her bipolar disorder.

Because of COVID I was only able to see my mom once since March. She is currently in a group home setting and they got extremely strict about visitors to the point where it wasn't worth going anymore. There was talk of her coming to visit for Thanksgiving and staying through Christmas but that got cancelled with the rise in COVID cases.

It will be a small Thanksgiving this year with my older and younger cousin, aunt and uncle. After dinner we will do a bonfire (outdoor event) with the family next door. They have two young boys who we sometimes look after when their parents are working. I think they're inviting another family too, with teens our age, so I hope they are nice. I'm just sad my mom won't be able to come.

What are y'all doing for holidays?

E

Yea COvid is really complicating things as it has done all year. My family usually pops up to Michigan to see family but not this year. Gonna stay home and keep things smaller. Glad you are doing okay, Evan. Be safe, everyone!

Yeah not even sure what's happening after lockdown and if its really going to change much from what we can do now

Though have read they're planning on letting a few family groups form a bubble for over Christmas, but whether that will happen I'm not sure

Normally we'd celebrate with other relatives, but this year we'll just stay at home and celebrate here. It'll be me, my parents and siblings.

Awww Im so sorry to hear about that!! I hope everything works out! My parents and I usually have the family over for Thanksgiving. My aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents come. But with Covid getting bad we decided to play it safe. So itll just be me, my 2 older brothers and my mom and dad. Were just gonna hangout and watch football, then eat dinner and do our yearly secret Santa drawing.

Most likely will just be home with family, parents and brothers. Normally we go somewhere to relatives or relatives come over but this year I think we'll be on our own.

I'm sorry you won't be able to see your mom for the holiday. I know that must be difficult

We aren't doing much here because its just going to be me and my parents. It probably won't be much more than a regular sit down dinner for us (whenever we are able to do that anyways)

Thanksgiving will Mom-Dad and their tax write off.
The boyfriend will bring over the desserts that he is
working on. Might go over his house for a drink.
Dont know what is up for Christmas-NO Christmas
parties this year so that sucks.

Will you be trying to keep distant in any way (1 meter?) or just forget about it for that day?

I'm in Utah for Thanksgiving. I don't know what the restrictions are here and I don't care.

I'm here with my mom and dad, my aunt (mom's sister), and my uncle (dad's brother) and his family, and another cousin who came in from Colorado. There are 10 of us in all.

And it's fucking cold up here!!

We will be celebrating the holidays with just our immediate family. That was agreed upon by all our relatives. My mom is a nurse too and has to deal directly with Covid 19 patients so that kind of ups the chances for our family contracting the virus but so far so good.

I am gay and happy with that.
I love talking to people very open & willing to listen.
I am also glad to try help with questions or problems.
Hit me up for anything. I promise I don't bite.

More than likely not, because we're close family.

Many of my relatives live in Europe, so it's not as if our Thanksgivings are huge to begin with, but this year it's going to be my parents and my two siblings. My sister is driving down from San Francisco tomorrow.
