You've heard of it, right? Friendsgiving combines the very best parts of Thanksgiving with a lower-stress guest list. November marks the beginning of the holiday season, with people everywhere booking plane tickets and planning to head home for the holidays. But for those who can't (or, yikes, don't want to), Friendsgiving has evolved into a sort of Thanksgiving replacement.
So, when did Friendsgiving start? According to Merriam-Webster, the term dates back to a 2011 Bailey’s Irish Cream ad campaign, but fans of the hit show Friends make a strong case for Rachel, Phoebe, Chandler and company inspiring the concept of spending the holiday with your besties. You can read more about it right here.
But back to stepping up your game: You’ll need games! You can’t go wrong with modern favorites like Cards Against Humanity and Never Have I Ever. But what might be even more fun would be bringing back childhood favorites like Hungry, Hungry Hippo and Operation. And Twister is downright Insta-worthy.
And, let’s be real and blame it on the tryptophan. After an epic holiday meal, at some point, everyone wants to sit down and relax. Loosen your belt buckles and settle in for a Thanksgiving movie. Craving a dose of someone else's family drama? A sweet rom-com? We have some great suggestions.
But above all, have fun with the family you *choose* to invite into your life- it’s a time to wind down and bond over one of life’s greatest gifts, food!
