No holiday will replace the fall comfort food and feeling of “thanks” that makes Thanksgiving. But, I will argue that a Friendsgiving shouldn’t be overlooked! Friendsgiving is for anyone and everyone. If you live far from family or just want to celebrate an evening of friendship with your best friends, pick any day during the month to celebrate this millennial holiday! Best of all, you can make it your own by trying new traditions (and recipes) with your closest friends.
If you and your gal pals want to host, here are some simple rules you can follow:
- The host makes the turkey.
- Since the host makes the turkey, they also make the gravy.
- Everyone else makes everything else. The host should coordinate a potluck for the remaining dishes, deserts, and drinks.
- It’s all about food and good company. Decorate, but no one should get stressed over the decorations.
- The evening should end with lots of laughter. The host can prepare table games or board games when it’s time for dessert.
As you celebrate the season of thanks with family and/or friends, know that we are thankful for you! Thank you for your support, comments, likes, and shares! We wouldn’t be where we are today without you.
