Thanksgiving has long been one of the busiest times of the year to travel. In fact, more than 55 million people made plans to travel 50 miles or more by road or plane in 2019, according to a report by AAA. But of course, travel in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic doesn’t come without risks, and that’s why the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advises those celebrating to avoid it.
The truly scary thing about Halloween this year is that it’s occurring during a pandemic, but there are safe ways to celebrate, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) says.

It’s National Hispanic Heritage Month, and Caribu is featuring a special category highlighting Hispanic culture, history, and heroes. While Hispanic Heritage month is a U.S. celebration, it is a chance to learn about Hispanic communities across the globe, each with distinct flavors and traditions.

Here are some of our favorite books and activities for Hispanic Heritage Month to share with your family and friends in a Caribu Call.
Hispanic Heritage Month is a period meant for recognition, education, and celebration, similar to Black History Month in February, or LGBTQ Pride in June. But how do we celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, and why is it recognized in the first place?
Grandparents Day is on Sunday, and it’s a wonderful opportunity to connect and celebrate with family and friends. Grandparents and grandchildren (and grandfriends!) share special relationships: Kids bring fresh energy and wonder to the world, and can fill conversations with joy and smiles. Grandparents bring a loving warmth that allows kids to relax and have fun with stories, games, recipes, and routines that differ from the ones they are used to with their parents. Even when you are not able to see grandchildren in person, connecting online with Caribu is an opportunity to meet virtually face-to-face, hear each other’s voices, and share the activities you enjoy the most together.
