Friendsgiving is usually the day of or a few days before thanksgiving day, depending on every friend’s schedule. Friendsgivings’ that are set on Thanksgiving are usually for people who can’t make their way home on this special day, while Friendsgivings’ earlier that week are just for friends who want to get together.

 

Friendsgiving is popularly celebrated by the younger generation as it is a new trend. There are many kinds of Friendsgivings’, for a formal Friendsgiving, there is often a host and the hostess’s house is where the celebration will conduct. The host will provide the turkey, and the guests will come with their Thanksgiving speciality. Another form of Friendsgiving is when everyone just brings a Thanksgiving gift, and it’s a big thanksgiving potluck.
