In your already over-booked life, may I suggest celebrating one of my favorite (albeit made-up) holidays, Friendsgiving?
In a couple of weeks, I will host my third such gathering. Back in 2010, by way of an emailed invitation, a friend introduced me to this holiday. Three short years later, Friendsgiving was officially a “thing,” commercialized and popping up all over the internet, with unofficial rules and promotions by Taco Bell and Whole Foods. I’ve gauged its popularity by the growing selection of invitations that Evite offers.
Friendsgiving is often associated with Millenials. I am not a Millenial. In fact, my friendships with my Friendsgiving guests are older than the Millenials themselves. OK, that statement just made me laugh and cringe at the same time.
