If they were only risking their health, I'd say go for it.And on the flip side, you have people who are dying because of quarantine! People who were once sober are not, folks who absolutely need a paycheck will go to work (factories, etc) and unfortunately the mental health system is overworked and will be for some time. Do those who loose their lives in that manner not matter? There absolutely has to be a balance of the two. We can't wrap ourselves in saran wrap every time there is another case. The best medicine for someone might be to eat a holiday meal with the ones they love. They will absolutely risk everything to do so.
Unfortunately, they aren't.
Assuming someone catches Covid from a Thanksgiving feast, they could forward it to first responders or medical staff. Who in turn, forward it to their families. The sixth grader in a family, could in turn, forward it to my granddaughter.
It's a vicious cycle. With no good solution.
