Do we need two holiday dinners to keep enthusiasts apart?

Dear Amy: In the family of our nine members, we have two people in extreme situations: one is a tenacious anti-mask and anti-waxer. The other is paranoid in her efforts to be safe.

All family members (except the three in the anti-household) have been vaccinated.

We traditionally have family gatherings in our homes for most vacations.

Anti-vaxxer will usually scoff at any virus protection displayed by anyone when there is a gathering.

The paranoid refuses to come into our house if anti has been there for the previous 24 hours.

Reasoning with one of the two extremes has been fruitless.

My wife and I are currently considering splitting the assemblies so that the two extremes are not in conflict.

This is very sad and means we are diluting the festivities we enjoy so much.
