The concept of Thanksgiving originated in 1621. As we have learned from our history studies, it was a bitterly cold winter after the Pilgrims first landed in America. They were able to survive by the generosity of the Native Americans that shared food with them. To repay their new friends, the Pilgrims held a three-day feast. The bounty they shared included dried fruits, boiled pumpkin, turkey, venison and other foods. A slightly different menu from what we are accustomed to but no doubt a delightful feast at that time.
Over the many years the theme of a celebration of harvest has continued to be a cherished event. We think of Thanksgiving as a time to give thanks for our foundation of this great Nation and for family and friends. It is also the official start of the holiday season and a special time of fellowship with those closest to us. After receiving encouragement from some people, President Lincoln declared Thanksgiving a nationwide holiday in 1863.
As many people will be traveling and or hosting the Thanksgiving Day meal, there are guidelines to contemplate according to the CDC. Some of their modified guidelines from last year are:
- Protect those not yet eligible for vaccination such as young children by getting yourself and other eligible people around them vaccinated.
- Wear well-fitting masks over your nose and mouth if you are in public indoor settings if you are not fully vaccinated.
- Even those who are fully vaccinated should wear a mask in public indoor settings in communities with substantial to high transmission.
- Avoid crowded, poorly ventilated spaces.
- If you are sick or have symptoms, do not host or attend a gathering.
- Get tested if you have symptoms of COVID-19 or have a close contact with someone who has COVID-19.
If you are considering traveling for a holiday or event, visit CDC’s travel page to help you decide what is best for you and your family. CDC still recommends delaying travel until you are fully vaccinated.
- If you are not fully vaccinated and must travel, follow CDC’s domestic traveler or international travel recommendations for unvaccinated people.
- If you will be traveling in a group or family with unvaccinated people, choose safer travel options.
- Everyone, even people who are fully vaccinated, is required to wear a mask on public transportation and follow international travel recommendations”.
