    CONCORD (KPIX) — Thousands of first responders were working on Thanksgiving Day, spending the holiday away from their families but that doesn’t mean there wasn’t time to celebrate. In the driveway behind Contra Costa County fire station 6 in downtown Concord, fire engineer Jeff Ornellas was deep-frying a turkey. “I’d probably say I’m going on like seven years of at-work Thanksgivings. All seven have been fried,” he said laughing. “This originally started out as a crab cooker,” he explained as he stood by his deep-fryer. Now he has become the “Turkey Dude.” The turkey cooked for an hour and a half and, within a few minutes of Ornellas pulling the bird out of the boiling oil, a medical emergency call came in to the station. Ornellas asked another firefighter to cover the turkey with foil as he and the engine crew rushed to the truck bay. Turkey will have to wait. “When they come back, we’ll cut it up,” said one of the other firefighters. Twenty minutes later, they were back. Thanksgiving dinner was served, complete with sparkling non-alcoholic apple...

    NANTUCKET, Mass. (AP) — President Joe Biden on Thursday wished Americans a happy and closer-to-normal Thanksgiving, the second celebrated in the shadow of the coronavirus pandemic, in remarks welcoming the resumption of holiday traditions in many homes. “As we give thanks for what we have, we also keep in our hearts those who have been lost and those who have lost so much,” the president said in a video greeting recorded with first lady Jill Biden at the White House before their trip to Nantucket, Massachusetts, for the holiday weekend. On Nantucket, the Bidens visited the Coast Guard station at Brant Point to meet virtually with U.S. servicemembers from around the world and chat with personnel at the station.

    NANTUCKET (CBS/AP) – President Joe Biden and his family are spending a private Thanksgiving on Nantucket, continuing a long family tradition. The Bidens arrived on the island Tuesday night with their children and grandchildren. They’re staying at the home of billionaire businessman David Rubenstein, a family friend. They have no public events scheduled during their visit. According to Nantucket Magazine, the Bidens started spending Thanksgiving on the island back in 1975. Joe and Jill Biden were still dating when they first visited Nantucket, with Biden’s sons, Beau and Hunter, in the mid-1970s. The couple was looking for a way out of choosing which of their families to spend Thanksgiving with, the first lady wrote in her memoir. Biden was a U.S. senator back then and his chief of staff suggested they go to Nantucket. “And although neither Joe nor I had ever been, we decided that sounded as good as anywhere,” she wrote. So they packed a cooler with sandwiches and sodas, loaded the boys into the station wagon and drove six hours to the Cape, where a ferry chugged...

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Chanukah starts at sundown this Sunday. This year, the holiday falls right after Thanksgiving, which means Jewish Americans will go from turkey to Black Friday and back again to having family around the table on Sunday.

The Holy Temple in Jerusalem was retaken by the Maccabees from the Greeks in the second century BCE. Oil kept the menorah lit eight days instead of the one night it was supposed to last.

    As if families don’t have enough to squabble about, now we have coronavirus conflicts. On the one side are family members who live in self-imposed isolation, afraid of their own breath. On the other are those who gamely go to school, work, restaurants, gyms and airports and wonder what all the fuss is about. I’ve given up trying to be the holiday mediator. You can make peace with your family’s politics, find common ground on religion, and even agree on whether or not the giblets belong in the gravy, but man, oh man, try to find common ground on how much togetherness is acceptable during a pandemic and opinions fall as far apart as galaxies. Our Thanksgiving rose and fell over such issues. As I lower my expectations again for the upcoming holidays, I’m hearing Judy Garland sing “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” — “Someday soon, we all will be together. If the fates allow. Until then, we’ll have to muddle through, somehow.” (Frank Sinatra later jollied up that last line to “Hang a shining star upon the highest bough,” but...
    The San Jose mayor flouted coronavirus restrictions in California to spend Thanksgiving with family from outside of his household. The NBC Bay Area Investigative Unit reported that Democratic Mayor Sam Liccardo traveled to his elderly parents’ home to celebrate Thanksgiving with additional family members. “This is a private event, not public,” said Jim Reed, Liccardo’s chief of staff, when asked about the dinner. “We are going to redraw the line between what is personal and what is public because that line has become blurred.” Liccardo’s office initially said that he was spending the holiday with his immediate family at home. On the day after Thanksgiving, however, his office told the NBC team that they “misspoke” and he celebrated the holiday at his parents’ home. The Democratic mayor has been supportive of coronavirus restrictions and said the day before Thanksgiving that local residents should “cancel the big gatherings.” “Cases are spiking, in part because we’re letting our guard (and masks) down with family & friends. Let’s cancel the big gatherings this year and focus on keeping each other...

    We all know Kobe Bryant as one of the greatest basketball players to ever walk the court. But more than that, he’s also a family man who has always shown how much they mean to him. He created a legacy in the game that will inspire players to come for decades, but more than that, he has also inspired people to love and cherish their families. However, earlier this year we all received the terrible news of Kobe’s unexpected demise in a terrible helicopter crash. There were eight other people on board, one of which was Kobe’s daughter, Gianna Bryant. This news shook the world, but to date, we hear people talking about him and telling their favorite ‘Kobe story’. What’s beautiful is that they’re not just limited to NBA, but how he otherwise touched their lives. Even when he passed away earlier this year, his wife continued to post his pictures with his daughters on social media. Kobe always took pride in being a ‘girl dad’. He had retired from the NBA in 2016 with an aim to spend...
    The Australian wife of disgraced Hillsong pastor Carl Lentz was beaming as she celebrated Thanksgiving with her family in Los Angeles.  Laura Lentz and her husband were dumped from the megachurch's New York City branch earlier this month after Mr Lentz admitted to an affair.  The couple, who are parents to Charlie, 16, Ava, 14, and Roman, 11, are said to be undergoing intense therapy after their marriage was thrown into the spotlight.  The family-of-five have now relocated to California, where they appeared to enjoy Thanksgiving celebrations.  On Thursday, Ava shared a picture to her Instagram story of Ms Lentz smiling for the camera. 'Happy Thanksgiving!!' she wrote. Ms Lentz was dressed in a white jumper which displayed an image of TV character Rachel Green from hit comedy, Friends.    Laura Lentz (pictured above) poses for a photo where she is wearing a jumper displaying Rachel's Thanksgiving Trifle from the hit show Friends Lentz has been married to his Australian-born wife, Laura, for 17 years.

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A worldwide pandemic is making this Thanksgiving very different. No matter how small the gathering, or how far apart, people are doing whatever they can to make it memorable. “It’s different, it’s a different experience for sure. Kind of cool to do my own thing and start traditions with just me and my husband,” said Nicole Schmatz from Monticello. The 28-year-old decided she and her husband would not be able to gather with their family this year. Instead, the holiday presented a new challenge: making her first turkey. “Lot of videos have been watched on how to do it and I did a little Facetime with my aunt this morning trying to make sure I was doing everything right,” she said. Kate Hogan and her family would normally be having a big open house style Thanksgiving for family and friends at her mom’s house. “It’s been something that’s super fun and special to me,” she said. This year, her mom brought the cinnamon rolls and bacon to her. “She met me with her mask on outside; turkey headband,...
    Thanksgiving is looking a bit different in 2020, even for President Trump and President-elect Joe Biden. The current commander-in-chief spent Thursday morning golfing at his Trump National Golf Club, a short drive from the White House. After golfing, he headed home, where he is scheduled to take part in a video call with military members for the Thanksgiving holiday. He will then have dinner with his wife, First Lady Melania Trump, and son Barron at the White House. Biden, meanwhile, is hunkered down at his Rehoboth Beach, Del., beach house alongside wife, incoming First Lady Jill Biden. The two are being joined by daughter Ashley Biden and her husband Howard Krein. In their video remarks to celebrate the holiday, the two said that they would be having separate Thanksgivings from the remainder of their family because of the coronavirus pandemic. “I’ve got a big family you’ve probably heard a lot about,” Biden joked during a virtual meeting with healthcare workers last week, “We do everything together.” The only thing they aren’t going to do, the president-elect said, was gather for...
    The Washington Post drew flak Thursday for a story about the world's "dread" about Americans' Thanksgiving celebrations during the coronavirus pandemic. "As Americans prepare to gather for Thanksgiving, the world watches with dread and disbelief," the Post tweeted, with a story compiling foreign criticism of U.S. citizens choosing to travel as COVID-19 cases spike nationwide. Among those quoted was Yap Boum, a Cameroonian epidemiologist who said he found it "really crazy" that Americans would risk the health of themselves and loved ones. The Post reported that international outlets and foreign journalists were "covering Thanksgiving travel in the United States extensively, with a mixture of concern, bewilderment and schadenfreude." Conservative commentator Drew Holden, known for his Twitter threads exposing media hypocrisy and inconsistencies, noted that the Post did not take a scolding tone when covering crowded victory celebrations for President-elect Joe Biden. Another user observed such a tone was also absent from a piece on protests against the White House in June. REP. BRAD WENSTRUP: BIDEN CELEBRATIONS OK BUT OTHERS ARE NOT.

    Donald Trump Jr. declared that he was “Rona” free and preparing to spend Thanksgiving with his family late Wednesday, less than a week after he tested positive for the virus. “Got to start our Thanksgiving a little bit early… I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to be cleared to be with my family but I got the medical OK. I’m all done with the Rona so @kimberlyguilfoyle and I made our back up plan meal today and are just going to double up on the Thanksgiving day feast,” he posted on Instagram. “We hope that you and yours have a wonderful Thanksgiving,” he said in the post, complete with turkey emojis. He and Guilfoyle, his girlfriend, also shared a video about their Thanksgiving plans. “Happy to be healthy.  And we get to spend Thanksgiving the way it’s meant to be. So we weren’t sure if that was going to be the case. So KG and I bought enough for probably a Thanksgiving for six or seven just for us,” President Trump’s oldest son said. He pointed to a table...
    President-elect Joe Biden and his wife, Jill, wrote an op-ed on Thursday celebrating Thanksgiving and sympathizing with families who remain separated over the holiday due to the coronavirus pandemic. "This year, our turkey will be smaller and the clatter of cooking a little quieter. There will be no family walks in the cold or playful bickering amongst the grandkids. Like millions of Americans, we are temporarily letting go of the traditions we can't do safely," the Bidens wrote in an op-ed for CNN. "It is not a small sacrifice. These moments with our loved ones — time that's lost — can't be returned. Yet, we know it's the price of protecting each other and one we don't pay alone. Isolated in our own dining rooms and kitchens, scattered from coast to coast, we are healing together." Thanksgiving has always been a special time for the Biden family. And while I know this isn’t the way many of us hoped to spend the holiday, the small act of staying home is a gift to our fellow Americans. pic.twitter.com/4mHOEFIcjV— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden)...
    Thanksgiving Day is a special time to spend at home with those who are the closest to you, but this year is a little different. The circles have gotten tighter thanks to a spike in the coronavirus cases. But that does not mean the stars are not putting on their finest clothes to enjoy some turkey and wine with those dear to them. Celebrities took to Instagram early on Thursday to show off the decor they have put out to ring in the annual food fest holiday.

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo canceled his Thanksgiving plans after he was met with harsh backlash for saying his 89-year-old mother would join him for the holiday after he spent weeks telling New Yorkers that Thanksgiving celebrations must be downsized. “The story is, my mom is going to come up and two of my girls,” Cuomo had said on Monday during an interview. He added, “But the plans change. But that’s my plan.” The comments were met with immediate criticism, including from Rep. Elise Stefanik, who called Cuomo the “WORST Governor in America.” “This is one of the many reasons why Cuomo is the WORST Governor in America. His arrogance and hypocrisy knows no bounds. Do as I say, not as I do. Rules for thee, but not for me. Family for me, but none for you. A despised, hypocritical, tyrannical, hubris-laden Governor,” Stefanik tweeted of the governor.

    Brent Hofacker/Shutterstock Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.Thanksgiving is the only holiday I really celebrate. It has everything I look for in a holiday: It’s secular, it promises good food, and it’s an annual opportunity to take a break from my usual cynicism and focus on what I’m thankful for. I normally spend Thanksgiving at my parents’ house in Massachusetts, but because coronavirus cases are soaring in my city and I don’t want to get on a plane, my boyfriend and I are planning to stay in our apartment and prepare a feast for two. He’ll cook a turkey, and I’ll put together the stuffing and sides. We’ll buy some pies and crack open a bottle of wine, thankful to have survived the Trump era and, thus far, the pandemic. Some people are getting creative with their Thanksgiving plans, setting up heated outdoor dining areas in their backyards or converting their garages into well-ventilated gathering places—neither of which is feasible for...
    Just like the rest of 2020, Thanksgiving this year will be one for the record books.

If you’re planning to enjoy Thanksgiving in a fun, new or unusual way, we want to hear about it. Tell us what you’re eating, who you’re Zooming with and what new traditions you’re starting. We may use your story in our Thanksgiving coverage. Our photo team is also looking for families that want to take part in documenting this historic day.

    Concerns about large gatherings may lead to changes in expectations for this year’s Thanksgiving and other holiday celebrations. How can we downsize our guest list and meal spread — and maximize the enjoyment to prioritize everyone’s safety? If your large celebration is now going to be an intimate gathering, you may want to consider the location. A large dining room table may add to the loneliness instead of the joy, so make it cozy by sitting at a kitchen table, or counter or even a card table. Dress up the place settings to make dinner feel special. If your typical Thanksgiving or holiday celebration has you preparing for days in advance, consider quality over quantity. What are your absolute must-haves? And what are you willing to do without? As you plan your holiday meal, consider these tips: — Set realistic goals. — Focus on traditions. — Consider a brunch — Host a Zoom dinner. — Try a new spin on turkey. — Play up the sides — see recipes below.

    Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said that people should cancel their Thanksgiving plans because of the coronavirus pandemic, but was seen celebrating with a large crowd of people after former Vice President Joe Biden won the presidential election. Lightfoot announced Thursday that a stay-at-home order for Chicago would go into effect Monday. Under the stay-at-home advisory, Chicagoans are supposed to remain home except for essential reasons, stop allowing guests into their homes, even if they are family, avoid travel that is non-essential, and “cancel traditional Thanksgiving plans,” Lightfoot said on Twitter.

    MSNBC host Chris Hayes exchanged Thanksgiving pumpkin pie for a wet blanket Tuesday, as he slammed the Trump administration for not encouraging Americans to hold "virtual" holiday celebrations this year. As coronavirus cases and hospitalizations have increased across the country, Hayes accused the White House on Twitter of not caring about the American people  "Right now, if we had [an] administration that cared one whit about protecting Americans there would be national coordinated messaging all over the place about making Thanksgiving virtual this year (or outdoors where weather permits)! But there is none because they don't care," Hayes wrote.  CNN DOESN'T SOUND ALARM ON COVID 'SUPERSPREADERS' AS THOUSANDS CELEBRATE BIDEN WIN IN THE STREETS Critics piled on the "All In" host for wanting to quash in-person Thanksgiving celebrations.  "This is clinically sociopathic," reacted Omri Ceren, national security adviser for Sen.

    The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends Americans host Thanksgiving Dinner virtually or outdoors during the coronavirus pandemic. “Celebrating virtually or with members of your own household (who are consistently taking measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19) poses the lowest risk for spread,” the CDC announced in a new list of recommendations for celebrating Thanksgiving in 2020. The guidance suggests Americans schedule a time to share a meal together virtually over a computer, rather than invite people to their homes. “Have people share recipes and show their turkey, dressing, or other dishes they prepared,” the list recommends. The guidance also encourages Americans to just stay at home, watch sports and movies, or “find a fun game to play.” Another option is to leave a meal on the front porch of a neighbor or a loved one, rather than meet them for the holiday. If Americans do risk hosting an in-person meal with people outside of their household, the CDC recommends it be held outdoors or inside with the windows open.

    TEXAS – The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) updated its guide to celebrating Thanksgiving due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
