Top Things to do with your friends during Thanksgiving break

1. Go see the Muppets Movie 

No matter how old you are, you will never get tired of Kermit’s voice or his tumultuous relationship with the ever fabulous Miss Piggy. It’s been 12 years since their last release of a Muppet classic and the gang is back and better than ever. In this tyriad, the gang joins together to save an old movie theatre from being destroyed by a greedy oil tycoon. Political? Yes. Entertaining? Of course. No matter how old you are, you will enjoy this Muppets movie also staring Jason Segel and Amy Adams.

2. Black Friday shopping 

After you are full from all that turkey, get your shopping shoes on because when the clock strikes twelve, it’s Black Friday shopping time. Target, Best Buy, and Walmart have some amazing deals this year, including a $149 flat screen TV, but it’s a great way to get all your Christmas shopping out of the way early at a fraction of the cost.

3. Have a catch-up session 

Chances are, you haven’t kept up with your friends back home as much as you should have. It’s okay. We lose touch with home when we are out having fun and making new friendships. Not only is Thanksgiving a time for you to see your long lost best friend, it’s a time for to share stories, and college provides a lot of stories. Set aside 3-4 hours for you to just talk and chill with your BFF’s. Make plenty of snacks because you are going to be there for a while.

4. Decorate your homes with Christmas decor 

The day after Thanksgiving signifies the start of the Christmas season. Spread the Christmas cheer with you friends by decorating the inside of one of your homes. It’s a great way to pick up extra decorating tips for Christmas decor for you dorm room and it’s a great bonding experience as well. Don’t get too caught up in the decorations though, because I’m sure your parents want to surprise you with a Christmas house when you come back from winter break.
