What is Friendsgiving?

If you’ve landed on this post and you’re like, girl, what the heck is Friendsgiving? No fear, we’ll give you a quick rundown!

What is Friendsgiving? Friendsgiving is a combination of friends + Thanksgiving + festive dinner parties. Figuratively and literally, Friendsgiving is when you come together with your best of friends to celebrate not only thanks but each other’s company.

Typically Friendsgiving is an informal party where all that are invited celebrate potluck style. This means everyone brings a dish to share! Some people even celebrate Friendsgiving the day after Thanksgiving and bring leftovers from the night before.

In past Friendsgiving feasts that I’ve hosted or been apart of, often times we bring leftover food from our actual Thanksgiving the night before, but it’s also very acceptable to host your own Friendsgiving in the weeks before actual Thanksgiving Day with any and all of your favorite holiday recipes to feast on.

Celebrate Your Way

There are no rules when it comes to throwing a Friendsgiving get together! Heck, you can even invite your mom or turn your Friendsgiving into a movie or game night featuring your favorite party game! Remember the whole point of throwing a Friendsgiving celebration is to bring people you love together and to celebrate life.
