The difference between how Americans are spending this Thanksgiving compared to how they spent last Thanksgiving is stark. Last year just 46% of people told Monmouth they would be with the same number (or more) people that Thanksgiving as in pre-Covid celebrations. A majority (53%) said they would spend time with fewer people than normal over the holidays in 2020; that number is down to 31% this year.
Experts suggest that the number of people who have previously been vaccinated, combined with the number of people who have been infected by Covid-19, means that this winter will likely be the last season in which Covid-19 is considered a pandemic as opposed to endemic.
The Point: Which means by next Thanksgiving, this will all be behind us. We all should hope so.
