Thanksgiving is this week and to say it'll be unconventional would be an understatement.

Tonight, three stories about what adapting to a pandemic Thanksgiving looks like.

First, the town of Wellesley has held a Thanksgiving meal for local seniors for decades — first run by the town's Veterans Council, now organized by the Fire Department. But because of the pandemic, the Fire Department had to cancel this year's in person event for the first time ever. Wellesley Fire Chief Richard DeLorie talked about how his department adapted this trusted tradition because of COVID-19.

Then, Arun talked with GBH News reporter Craig LeMoult on how listeners are celebrating Thanksgiving differently this year. Lastly we heard from Dr. Anne Fishel, she's the director of the Family and Couples Therapy Program at MGH and the director and co-founder of the Family Dinner Project. She discussed how to maintain relationships, romantic and otherwise, while marking a different holiday season.
