Holiday Temperature Checks

Looks like the turkey’s not the only item with a thermometer in it this Thanksgiving. A new survey of 2,000 Americans finds 30% of respondents plan on setting up a mandatory “temperature check” at their front door for all holiday get togethers this year including Thanksgiving and Christmas. It’s safe to say we’re all ready bid adieu to 2020 but it’s certainly clear we have our work cut out for us this holiday season. 70% say hosts this year are under much more pressure to keep everyone safe during parties. 54% of those surveyed plan on enforcing strict social distancing rules so it’s safe to assume the post Thanksgiving meal game of TWISTER is out. Other new party rules include only having one person serve food and drinks at 37%. 24% mandatory RSVPs and 27% say take the entire event outside. Four in 10 respondents say they’re planning on a virtual Thanksgiving Day this year which makes it awfully tough to pass the cranberry sauce. It certainly counds like the MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR…if you like face masks, Lysol wipes, hand sanitizers and thermometers as stocking stuffers.
