Gen Z And Millennials Are Going Back To Celebrating Holidays Traditionally
November 18, 2021
We have been bombarded with the idea of being home for the holidays on TV and in movies since we were little.
The excitement of having family from all over visit our home for Thanksgiving and Christmas has led to eager anticipation and probably many good memories. It only takes a quick second to think about Thanksgiving for most of us, and the fond memories of turkey, dressing, mac n' cheese, greens, sweet potato pie, and family gatherings can bring a smile to our faces.
One of the more disruptive impacts of COVID-19 is how these special holidays changed for many of us. Far too many of us have lost that connection to our families and the roots that we once used to recharge our internal batteries and help navigate a challenge we might be facing.
Seeing an aunt, uncle, grandparent, sibling, parent, or cousin was that instant dose of medicine that provided that deep sense of love and belonging; But the pandemic took that from us. And the reality is we never had a chance to talk about it.
A new survey by YPulse found that Gen Z members are indeed planning to celebrate Thanksgiving this year.
