1) Do Thanksgiving Dinner in miniature (this is pretty cool because, as I love to cook, this is a real treat and I can also cut out the holiday foods that I don't like!)
2) Volunteer - whether it be at a soup kitchen, a church dinner, or something else this would be a great way to be around people and get to make some new acquaintances around the holiday season. The work is generally easy and all it takes is a willingness to help and a smile, so I might have to try this one if I can find stuff around here (working in a new area is a bit challenging).
3) Movies - treat myself to a movie on Thanksgiving day! This sounds like a fun time to me. Whether it's a holiday movie that I rent (I'm thinking "Holiday Inn", "A Christmas Story", "White Christmas" or "Miracle on 34th Street") or one that's in the theatres, this can always be fun and a good way to kick off the holiday season.
4) Go out for Thanksgiving dinner - I never really thought about this before, but there are a number of restaurants that -for a certain amount and with reservations- do a mean holiday meal. Granted, I like cooking, but this might be a fun new way to experience Turkey Day.
Hope you all are looking forward to the holidays and (hopefully!) some sort of break. I for one am just very thankful that I am NOT working Black Friday. After working two Black Fridays at one of the largest outlet malls in the midwest, I have a new appreciation for retail workers and a strong desire never to do that again.
