This post is for anyone who will be hosting any type of gathering this holiday season, especially if it’s one—like Thanksgiving dinner—that has a very definite set of expectations around it.
Lots of things can be good enough and everyone will be happy.
The people who are not happy with good enough are never happy no matter what you do. These are not the people you’re trying to please.
Your people would rather have a happy you than a perfect meal.
Do your best, but let it be imperfect without apology or guilt.
