History will teach us nothing

USA Today on the 1918 influenza and Thanksgiving, and then Christmas.

So does this imply that people should stick with their nuclear families for Thanksgiving to avoid adverse outcomes?

We were planning on driving to my MIL and do Turkey day with with her, my family, and my BIL family with a total of 11 but even that seemed too much especially since 2 flew in from out of state last Friday, so the 6 of us will be at home with or 16.5 lbs Turkey - smallest one I could get. Looks like we’ll be hitting the Turkey leftover recipes hard this year.
