Unlocking the Friendsgiving Chronicles: From Simple Idea to Cultural Phenomenon

Updated: Nov 10, 2023

Have you ever wondered how those heartwarming traditions that we cherish today came into existence? Friendsgiving is one such phenomenon that has evolved from a simple idea into a cultural sensation. It all began in the early 2000s when a group of friends decided to put a unique spin on Thanksgiving. Unable to be with their families, they created their own tradition, filled with shared meals, laughter, and a big helping of friendship.

Fast forward to today, Friendsgiving is celebrated nationwide, embraced by people from all walks of life. It's all about cherishing diversity and the chosen family you've gathered over the years.
