When Thanksgiving and its customs are foreign to you

I love spending time and have dinner with friends, but Thanksgiving is not a holiday I grew up with. I did grew up with three days of Christmas so maybe that counts for Thanksgiving :-)

I wonder if there are any others here who don't connect with Thanksgiving and its spirit. And if this is the case, what do you do when everyone around you gets into the madness of Thanksgiving? Also Any tips where to hang out and not be dragged into this Thanksgiving celebration???

And this is not to diss those who are celebrating Thanksgiving, I fully respect this and you! I just want to do something else !

Want to stay up to date with this post?
