To make this holiday even more memorable, here’s a tip for everyone: Making a big meal together is one of the most central bonding experiences of big holiday gatherings. Social distancing doesn't have to change that. Even if you're not spending the holidays with your family, set up a virtual hangout to cook together, whether it's a small or big group.This is especially important for folks who have to stay away from grandparents. If you think you'll be having a hard time with it, just imagine being part of a high-risk group like the elderly who've been especially cooped up, isolated, and afraid.  Even if they're not cooking anything themselves, ask high-risk family members to join you, and maybe even teach you their trademark family recipe.
