Dec 16: Distributed Dinner

Part of the 2020 good-times advent calendar! If you have ideas, and/or would like to see something fun drawn into the advent calendar, please let me know. Comment below or email/WhatsApp me and let’s have fun this next few weeks.

Saskatoon friend Robyn had a great suggestion:

We’re also planning to have a distanced potluck where we each make a usual component of the Christmas meal, package it up for the rest of the family, and then reheat at our respective homes and eat together over Hangouts or something. That way we still can kind of feel like we’re sitting down for a meal together and get to tell each other how good the food is etc. It will be very different but I’m still anticipating it as something to look forward to, and it will most definitely be memorable.

Obviously this works best if you live in the same community and not across the ocean, but this is a nice idea for distanced socializing. It checks the boxes of having something to plan for and look forward to, and also a different kind of event to break up all the time spent at home. It also has the benefit of eating food your friend and family prepared for you, and vice versa. This one doesn’t work for me this year, but I’d love to hear about it if you try it.
