This pandemic has enhanced my desire to refrain from visiting relatives.
 
2021-10-19 5:36:03 AM  
I gotta say, I was OK with skipping Thanksgiving last year, and the inevitable political debates that would have ensued.

Well, if you're a devout conservative Christian, just remember that the feasting and gift-giving parts of Christmas were lifted directly from Saturnalia, the Roman winter celebration it replaced. The tree came from German religions.

Enjoy your "Christian" holiday!

No plans to go anywhere. However, I just snagged myself a turkey yesterday at Walmart. Didn't want to deal with turkey shortage 2021 so I'm glad I was able to pick one up right after they were stocked here.

Same here. I'll hear the same shiat I heard last: Trump good. Biden bad.

40% of TSA isn't vaccinated?  I can see why airports are still so high risk then.

Wait until they find out about huge chunks of Christian theology lifted from Mithraism and Zoroastrianism.

Christian conservatives don't learn anything, and any information that conflicts with their beliefs are inherently wrong.

They're wilfully pig-ignorant zealots.

We don't teach Critical Christian Theory in this house! You are just and Anchrista and a SLM activist.

Don't forget the Norse holiday of Yule, of which many of the elements of Christmas was "borrowed" from

Don't go to Florida suspiciously absent

HighlanderRPI: Don't go to Florida suspiciously absent


Florida's probably one of the Covid-safer places you can go right now. We burned full-throttle through the Delta wave and now there aren't many targets left for the virus to infect.

It's just our little 4-person bubble, Mrs Samurai and my parents.  I'm tempted to get either a small turkey or a large breast and pressure cook it in the instant pot.

Maybe the CDC should tell people who actually are vaccinated and follow mask guidelines to just stay home until the "personal rights" people die off.

F*ck that. I can live my life AND watch the idiots and assholes die. The vaccine truly is great.
 
2021-10-19 8:00:56 AM  
So this has clarified no holidays without vaccination. I'm hoping the youngins in my house can get vaccinated soon. Even then...whew the misinformation and blatant disregard for others has strained relationships.
 
2021-10-19 8:05:21 AM  
Real World: CDC politely issues some entirely-reasonable advice and guidance around how everyone can see their loved-ones safely over the holidays if they wish to.

Right-wing News: CDC SAYS THANKSGIVING IS CANCELED!!! JACKBOOTED FEDERAL THUGS TO FORCE US ALL TO BE UTTERLY ALONE FOREVER!

Ah yes, another thread for all of the people too scared to leave home.

OH NOES! They might all get fired for not being vaccinated.

Stud Gerbil: This pandemic has enhanced my desire to refrain from visiting relatives.


I just got back from my aunt's funeral where the entire family attended.  The biggest concern of the entire thing was how to keep my brother (44) and cousin (52) from getting into another fist-fight. Part of the planning of the funeral was how to keep the two of them apart and out of the booze.

When my grandfather passed 14 years ago, we took his whiskey collection and deemed it funeral whiskey.  Whenever someone in my family passes, we all have a shot from his collection.  We couldn't do it this time because of those two.

So yeah, I'll use the pandemic as an excuse not to visit my family again for the holidays.

I just got back from a long weekend where I grew up (visiting family for a funeral), so I'm getting a kick out of this.

Simply amazed how many people can't seem to wear a mask properly. We were in 3 airports on Friday and Monday, and each of them had signage, plus audio notices, plus video on the TVs saying "Federal guidelines say you must wear a mask over your nose and mouth, or else you may not be flying today, or ever." The boarding announcement included it. The pilot would announce it before takeoff.

How many times do you think some member of the cabin crew needed to tell someone within earshot of me "you need to put on your mask over your nose and mouth" while we were flying? At least once on each plane, that I heard.

Some people shouldn't be allowed to participate in society; I was flying within earshot of several of them this weekend.

Oh good. A "I hate my family", "all conservatives must die", "go fark yourselves with you zealotmas celebrations", and "I'm hiding in my momma's basement until there is no trace of any virus" thread all mixed into one giant cesspool of leftist drivel.

Right. I think they should start up an antivax colony in northern Alaska, where you're free to be unvaxxed, unmasked, and you can have all the horse paste you can eat. You'd solve a lot of problems that way, especially by March.
 
2021-10-19 9:58:53 AM  
I'm probably never doing a Christmas again. I knew it was stressful but I didn't realize just how bad until went through all of November and December doing literally no Christmas prep at all.

My midwestern FIL in Iowa (vaccinated, pretty conservative but not a nutter) just watched an otherwise-healthy 30-something coworker die unvaccinated of Covid and leave behind a young wife & couple little kids to go on without him.

It's scared him pretty badly about all the antivax family he's got out there in the rural cornfields. We'd like to see him, but seeing him at Thanksgiving means a tightly-packed indoor gathering with all of them as well, which just isn't safe - mostly for them.

They'll likely just ridicule us in our absence for not attending, but I'd rather be ridiculed than hurt any of them.
 
2021-10-19 10:10:11 AM  
Well the FDA needs to hurry the fark up and authorize vaccines for kids under 12.

Clock's ticking motherfarkers.

So union oil workers wages, oil/gas annual payments, holidays in Hawaii; and stickin it to those leftist bastards in DC!  Sign me up!

I've got a 50 year old former classmate (Wisconsin) who is currently sedated, ventilated and on a dialysis machine. Her child is a high school senior and was in a different hospital last week. Even THAT's not enough to convince the two hold-outs in my family to get vaccinated. Farking anti-authority complex is going to kill the both of them.

I am going to see my folks and my brother and his family, all vaccinated. Only one that wont be there is my unvaccinated sister and her family, she tried to invite themselves, mom said they were welcome if they were vaccinated. Why yes my sister and her family were the only ones in the family that caught covid last January.
 
2021-10-19 1:07:37 PM  
Covid has done a wonderful job at teaching me just how many relatives I never ever want to be near again. Yeesh.

I knew there were some RWNJs in the family but good grief.

Beer can chicken. Smothered in butter and seasoning. Don't forget the pumpkin pie shortage. Get yours now!

Oh no, no oil jobs for you. You get to live on a colony. With other vaccine know-nothings. Where you have the freedumb to be sick. Heat optional.

If they already had it they are better protected than vaccinated folks that haven't had it.

or ridicule you while you are there.

That is the main reason we are not visiting our Trumpy family.  Why volunteer to spend days in their trailer so they can see the grandkids while berating us to defend every wrong thing they have heard about Biden?

How many grandchildren and grandparents do you think will kill each other this holiday season? And how many fights at the reading of the wills might happen? "They shouldn't get a dime, their kids killed grandma and grandpa!"

Flying pedant here! No one ever does "the reading of the will" anymore. If you're in someone's will, you either get a copy of the will in the mail, or a notice from either the estate executor or lawyer about the one paragraph or line in the will that says you get something (or, if things are looking spicy, a specific line that says you do not!). But not to worry, this only slightly delays the beginning of inheritance squabbles. The fighting can continue unabated after this slightly more uneven start!
