How have your celebrations and observances changed under the present pandemic conditions?

Asked by Jeruba (51920points) April 8th, 2020

People go right on having birthdays, anniversaries, religious observances, and other special calendar-driven dates, regardless of what’s happening out there.

How have yours changed under present conditions?

And is there anything you like about the forced adaptations?

This past Saturday was my 28th wedding anniversary. I spent it working and my husband spent it with abdominal pain. We couldn’t have done what our original plan was before the pandemic. I had hoped to finally visit a Tibet restaurant that’s a few doors down from our house. They are delivering food but our situation kept us from doing so. Maybe next payday we can celebrate with delivery.

I haven’t had any yet.
My only occasion so far was a surgery I had to miss.

Well, we cancelled our Easter Dinner with family and friends, but as a consolation, I plan to eat an entire ring of jumbo shrimp cocktail by myself.

With a crab-stuffed mushroom chaser.

^ Weren’t your family gatherings stressful for you or am I thinking of someone else? If it was you this may be a blessing in disguise. :)

@Jonsblond: They are, but my wife and daughter really love hosting holidays, so we keep on with them.

@Dutchess_lll: Luckily the butcher shop up the street has remained open, so we at least get some yummy food. Still near Boston, come on by.
