Formally should it be "While you gathered around a festive dinner" ?


The holiday season is fast approaching, meaning you are likely to celebrate with family and friends. While gathered around a festive dinner, you might want to be up to speed with the latest news and biggest Netflix hits.

It's correct the way it is, but it means the same as "While you are gathered around a festive dinner"
