Friendsgiving seems like a cute idea until the time comes to actually plan and execute a whole dinner party for like, 25 of your closest friends. Let’s be real: it sucks. In fact, Friendsgiving makes you realize why everyone goes home for the holidays: We’re literally incapable of doing anything. With that being said, we’re here to help you get through your Friendsgiving dinner without putting in any work. Here’s how it’s done:
1. Volunteer to host so you look like you care
Stock up on Xanax and get ready to actually initiate a group text, because hosting a Friendsgiving is actually the right move if you don’t want to do that much work. It sounds counter-intuitive, but think about it. When people hear you’re the host, they’ll automatically assume you’re planning everything and that you already have A MILLION things to do, so they’ll volunteer to take everything off your plate. Little do they know you have committed to nothing.
