This guy sums it up pretty nicely as far as the covid restrictions or whatever you want to call them.
First you have to give up. First you have to know, not fear, know that someday you're going to die.
My Dad will probably come over for Turkey sandwiches but that's about it. Wife did all the major holiday cooking in the past and she loved it. She loved the holidays and all the trappings. Me, not so much. The girls at work are having an outside gathering and took pity on this "old lonely guy" but I declined their invitation. The faster I get through these holidays with as little commotion as possible the better. As for the government and their edicts, they can kiss my hairy ass. If I could find a strip club open on Turkey day I would be front and center. Wouldn't be the first time I spent turkey day in a club of ill repute.

My wife & I will cook the meal on Tuesday and eat by ourselves. Our two boys are staying away. On Wednesday, my wife will bring the food to her 100 year old aunt & 99 year old mother, whom she stays with Wednesday thru Sunday of each week. This most certainly sucks but we have to be extra cautious that the old folk don't catch Covid.
Only good thing is I won't have to fight anyone for leftovers. I think one of the best things about Thanksgiving is the leftover turkey sandwiches on white bread with mayo & lots of salt & pepper. I'll be brining 2 turkey breasts in a honey/rum brine.
