So many things will be different this year, because of the pandemic. Our celebrations will be smaller, our travel plans limited. We will try to be grateful for what we have, while feeling the pain of all we have lost. 

On this special episode of "The Pulse", we explore the traditions of Thanksgiving through a scientific lens, and discuss how the coronavirus will impact the holiday. We hear stories about the neuroscience of gratitude -- and how it can help us through grief. We find out how the pandemic has impacted our food systems, and what people are doing to stabilize things. Also, a visit to a multi-generational cranberry farm, and a tough decision to cross state lines -- not for turkey, but for love. Join us for this hour-long special on Sunday, November 22 at 7 p.m.
