As the world heads into the high season for bringing people together at the table—besides Thanksgiving in America, major holidays such as Hanukah, Diwali, Christmas, and Kwanzaa are around the corner—the question has stopped being who to invite and what the seating chart looks like.

Now it’s this: will folks gather together at all?

And the related question: what’s the best, most intimate way to celebrate when you’re separated by a screen?

Clearly, 2020 holiday parties will look nothing like before. But that doesn’t mean they won’t happen. The vast economic impact of a pared back travel and entertaining season aside, humans being humans, we will find a way to celebrate. After all, there are noted social and mental health benefits to being around friends and family, fights with relatives notwithstanding (and maybe even then).
