As Thanksgiving 2022 approaches, many of us are starting to think about how we can spend the holidays with our closest friends. After all, friends are the family members we get to choose!

Check out all of the information you need this Thanksgiving season about Friendsgiving and how to host your own event! 

What Does Friendsgiving Mean?

The concept of Friendsgiving is quite simple! It’s a Thanksgiving celebration with your friends, as opposed to just family. While Thanksgiving is reserved for immediate family members, Friendsgiving tends to include more activities you would typically do with friends, such as games, cocktails, and storytelling.

When Did Friendsgiving Start?

The term “Friendsgiving” was first used in the early 2000s as millennials were seeking a word to describe gathering with friends for a Thanksgiving meal. Although the word was informally used for quite a while, it didn’t appear in written form until a Twitter post in 2007.

How Do You Host A Friendsgiving Party?

As it turns out, hosting a Friendsgiving party is very similar to any other house gathering event. Here is our simple step-by-step guide to hosting a Friendsgiving party, including fun Friendsgiving 2022 ideas:

  • Send an invitation to all of your friends you want to attend.
  • Provide a written description of the fun activities your friends and expect from the event.
