Which holiday will produce the greater number of COVID cases: Thanksgiving or Christmas / New Year's?

Have Americans "learned their lesson" from Thanksgiving about avoiding gatherings, not traveling for the holidays, and wearing a mask? Or will a large number of Americans continue to "live normally" during Christmas and New Year's despite the COVID surge that we are currently in that resulted from Thanksgiving?

People have learned nothing. Idiots will continue to live normally because they are patriots and fighting the Demrats that want to control their lives.

Here in PA starting today. Dine In has been banned till January. Gyms, Theaters, Museums are to be closed.

Covid ain’t real.

Some Bubba from my home parish in Louisiana said so on Facebook. Duh.

"Trump should have done more on January 2 when he learned about this so he could have prevented 300,000 deaths!!@$!Q#%##$#$T!"

Even if would have told everyone to wear a mask, you'd have idiots defying it.

I would hope so, as there's no evidence they've had any impact on the spread of this virus.

All I know is my hospital is full, and the last few weekends my unit is running 30-40% covids. Intermediate and ICU are more. If there's going to be a let up, I'd welcome it just from a work perspective.

What KGB said. We've been in Code Red restrictions for over a month, with some really mindless restrictions and people being fined for not wearing a mask. Cases have gone up and deaths are in the double digits every day. 

You can shop but only buy certain things. You can only go certain places as many businesses are deemed non essential. No gatherings of more than 5 people. Mandatory masks. Etc, etc, etc. 


An example of the stupidity : as of yesterday Xmas wrapping paper was removed from the restricted list but you can't buy Xmas greeting cards and most items one would give as present are restricted or can only order online. Many people do not, have not nor will they ever order online either by preference or being they do not have this capability. Not to mention the posts I see on the Facebook of people ordering online only to have porch pirates stealing their packages or having them delivered to a completely wrong address. 


We live out in the country so most of this doesn't really affect us and my girlfriend is a kind of year long Xmas, birthday and anniversary shopper where if she sees something that would be a good gift for someone she will buy it and put it aside regardless of when it is. 


Typically most people we get anything for this time of year get wine or scotch or for a couple of my friends boxes of cigars. 

Bottom line is if you want to mandate wearing masks then fill your boots. Put all these restrictions in place and put small businesses out of business by the hundreds. It's not going to change anything. Get a new strategy or hope to Hell  your vaccine keeps more people from getting sick thsn it kills. 

Anybody out there know anyone who has simply gotten the flu? Seems to have disappeared.

Proper lockdowns work. It's been proven. If Trump had encouraged the Kool aid drinkers to strap on masks and distance a good portion would have.. For months he said to do the opposite. Watch comments and interviews. They agree with everything he says. I still remember the interviews with partiers in Florida. They said they didn't think they had to protect themselves because the president was not worried about It.

We have some Businesses in the area that are still going to do dine In service, A gym that is going to stay open.

People saying the only reason Gov Wolf is closing things is to ruin people's Christmas. Idiots

Gas station I've stopped @ 4 times in past month or so their employees are not wearing masks & no plexiglass. Not possible to walk in that many times without being pattern beforehand too. Noticed same thing @ 7-11

Went to tribal casino with lady over Thanksgiving weekend. Gambled drank & ate @ slots bars & restaurants all open while rest of state was on restrictions & corner time punishment. Everyone seemed calm cool collected from employees to patrons. All masks sanitizers wipes social distancing protocols adhered to. Nothing worse than going to WalMart/Lowes/Home Cheapo &/or any other big box corporate store. tbh it actually felt safer

People making their own decisions about the day-to-day activities in their lives?   That's crazy talk!!
