Nobody is coming to our house for Thanksgiving this pandemic year. We decided to order a takeout Thanksgiving dinner, because it didn’t seem worth going to all the trouble for just the two of us. So I posted a question in the Facebook group for my neighborhood: “Looking for a restaurant that will do a nice takeout Thanksgiving dinner for two people. Any recommendations?” Within a few hours I had forty responses. Some were duplicates, and there were two that appeared many times. We picked one of those two. We’ll see how it turns out. There’ll be plenty of leftovers.

I have written so many previous holiday stories. . . . For a description of my Thanksgivings in pre-pandemic times, see Over the River and Through the Woods (from 2016) and/or Over the River Again (an updated version in 2018). For Chanukah see This Little Light of Mine and Back to December, and for New Year’s see Auld Lang Syne and Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.
