Urban Dictionary describes Friendsgiving as, “The celebration of Thanksgiving dinner with your friends.” This event usually takes place in lieu of; or in addition to the holiday spent with family known as “Thanksgiving” (most often celebrated a few days before the traditional Thanksgiving day). Since many students are away at college and unable to go home for the holidays, students are now sharing these holidays with their extended college family. For some, it is an excuse to have a self-induced food coma, and for others it is a last opportunity to spend time with close friends before heading home. Either way this growing holiday tradition is a great way to share a meal, have laughs, and let those close to you know how thankful you are to have them in your life!
