Looking to end 2020 with less get togethers

Uh, what to do about holidays.
I was all for closing up shop for Halloween and DH insisted he's going to make sure it's safe for anyone who shows up. I didn't want candy in the house. We have a street full of little ones so it's possible we'll have some takers.
Thanksgiving...yuck. My DD1 volunteered her family out. Kids are back in school, sports teams are active. The boys are good about masks but Little Miss is not. Additionally they share a bubble with their next door neighbors and 3 kids the same ages. Too much mask-less play for me. If we do like the pilgrims and have an outside dinner in decent weather, I'll have them over. A bathroom door opens to the exterior so no one would have to venture in the main house.
DD2 and her DH are usually part of our bubble. He's back to work and confident everything is well controlled for him. He's a major germaphobe so this is right up his alley. For years has used sanitizer, even a pair of gloves to wear solely on the train. They don't mingle with any crowds.
Christmas...eek. Again DD1 has offered to opt out of sit-down dinner with family. Depending on the weather we may have an opportunity to celebrate outside. Who knows? Since SIL2 has been excluded from travel to England he hasn't had any family but us for the past year. He's pretty bummed. We'll most likely go to their "new" house to celebrate.
All plans are only plans subject to change at moments' notice!
