Ways to get a FREE Thanksgiving Dinner!

We brought in our first Channel 933 personality, Ethan Cole, to vote if we should put up or Christmas decorations now or wait till after Thanksgiving.

The show got into a heated debate about if you should throw your away food in the trash can or in the garbage disposal

Plus, a listener's ex-boyfriend embarrassed her on social media so she decided to return the favor by including his family on Crazy Girl Confessions.

  • If you are flying out of San Diego this Thanksgiving here is what you need to know. The San Diego International Airport is preparing for an influx of Thanksgiving travelers even though it will still be a lot less than normal years. Thanksgiving is usually one of the busiest travel weeks of the year however right now, they are down about 67% in travel in comparison to last year at this time.

  • Speaking of thanksgiving, the new trends this year is smaller portions and pre-orders of both turkeys and prepared meals. They say lots of people are ordering smaller turkeys due to having smaller gatherings. There are a few items that have low inventory, spices, flour, and rice.  Usually the busiest day in grocery stores is Tuesday and Wednesday of next week but this year it's projected to be earlier – on Saturday and Sunday.  Meanwhile, Google maps can now tell you the best and least-crowded times to head to the grocery store. According to google maps, grocery stores are least-busy on Mondays at 8 a.m., and most busy on Saturdays from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m.

  • Walmart has launched a Christmas tree delivery program and even a Christmas lights installation service this year. They’ll also drop off things like wreaths and poinsettias. Installation on single-story homes costs $129, while for a double-story it’s $199. However, those prices only include labor and not the actual Christmas lights, extension cords, or clips. And if you want them to remove your lights you can pay for that too. It’ll cost you $99 for a one-story home and $159 for a two-story home. You can order both services on Walmart’s website. Last month, Lowe’s also launched a holiday tree delivery plan.

  • The holidays will be a lot quieter this year if you follow the latest guidelines suggested by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Published yesterday (November 18th), the organization says to minimize the spread of COVID-19, people should avoid singing or shouting (especially indoors), avoid close contact with others from outside one's household (you still should be socially distancing, keeping six feet apart), and avoid drinking alcohol. The CDC also warns against drinking as, “Using alcohol or drugs that may alter judgement [could] make it more difficult to practice COVID-19 safety measures.” And if you can’t avoid having a holiday gathering, the organization recommends wearing face masks and having hand sanitizers or hand washing stations available for guests. Quarantining for 14 days before and/or after the event has also been suggested to minimize exposing others to the virus.
