She added, “I know that’s not something that most of the country will be able to do and it really breaks my heart.

I’ve never left a wedding and been like, ‘That was the best floral arrangements I’ve ever seen, that was the best silverware.’ We leave with the memories of togetherness and a meal. So, I just always say to try to focus on that.”With reporting by Kayley Stumpe – Advertisement – “We’re fortunate that this has now happened in a time where we are so technologically connected and this is the one time I’ll allow electronics at the table,” she said. “People will sit at the table together and we’ll be with computers.”Sarah Michelle Gellar. ApothicGellar explained her Thanksgiving dinner with Prinze. Jr, 44, and kids Charlotte, 11, and Rocky, 8, will be hosted outside to allow for social distancing, but noted it’s an option she wishes was available for more people in the U.S.“Normally we host for a lot of people,” Gellar explained. “We don’t usually travel during Thanksgiving. We usually host it for people that can’t afford to go home or can’t get to their families and we usually do a really big one. And it’s so sad that this year there’s going to be so many people that can’t get home, but I don’t think it’s something that we can actually do. I mean, the beauty of living in California is that our weather usually does hold up until we will be able to do something outside.”- Advertisement –
