The holiday season is the perfect time to celebrate all the important people in your life. Friendsgiving started as a Thanksgiving replacement for the unlucky bunch who couldn’t be close to their family but had friends to celebrate with. It helped us not be swallowed by holiday blues and the haunting feeling of loneliness being away from our loved ones.

The Friendsgiving celebration trend has caught up and evolved into an extra holiday all of us can have. Why limit yourself to only one day a year to express our appreciation for the people we love? And we should celebrate friendships just as much because having dear friends sure is an excellent reason to be thankful. Especially this year.

Now that we have established how vital Friendsgiving is let’s clarify a few more things about it.


  • There’s no rule to organize it precisely one week before Thanksgiving day. You can coordinate with your friend group and have it sometime around that time, a week before or a week after; it is totally up to you.

  • Friendsgiving is a perfect time to try out some not-so-traditional recipes or put an interesting twist on the classic ones. Your friends will appreciate your modernized kale slaw or turning the traditional pumpkin pie into a mousse; your aunt Debbie most probably won’t.

  • It is also absolutely fine to go for the beloved traditional dishes and treat your friends to some well-rehearsed go-to holiday dishes.

  • It doesn’t have to be dinner either; throw a Friendsgiving lunch, brunch, or even breakfast if that’s something your group would enjoy.


So, there’s only one rule - get together with friends and express your appreciation of having each other in your lives by enjoying a delicious meal. All the more reasons to celebrate Friendsgiving this year, double the fun, double the memories, double the food! And if you need some ideas and recipes for Friendsgiving inspiration, look no further. This collection has plenty of dishes both you and your friends will love.
