Have you ever noticed that one of the most important episodes in any of the 10 seasons of Friends is the Thanksgiving episode? There's something about turkey and gratitude that provide the perfect setting for friends to share a meal and grow closer.
Lauren and I have organized a "FRIENDSGIVING" with our group each year, and each time it's been one of the highlights of the holiday season. It's easy to think of Thanksgiving as something that gets in the way of group because of travel, family, time off work, etc. But even if you take off group for the week of Thanksgiving, that doesn't mean that you can't celebrate together! The group meeting before or after that week, or even on another day that week, go all out, get everyone involved, and throw a great Thanksgiving meal together. Just enjoy each other's company, share some things you're thankful for, and eat a ton of tryptophan. I promise, it'll be worth it!
Also, please enjoy this lovely compilation of great moments from Friends Thanksgiving episodes!
Come enjoy a night of Christmas cheer with yummy desserts, festive drinks and a celebration of YOU and all of Mission's incredible volunteers!
