Hang in there until the next paragraph.
But if you have seen Friends, you will know all about the Thanksgiving shows.
I truly believe it is this television show that inspired this whole “Friendsgiving” trend.
When I was in my early twenties watching Friends while it was still on NBC, I loved that they all ate Thanksgiving dinner together.
Then I was all, “wait a minute… where the heck is their family?”It was all mysterious and Charlie Brown-like.
You know, WHERE ARE THE PARENTS?!?!?
Because back in the early nineties, I had plenty of family around.
Some to spare, even!
So a “Friendsgiving” wasn’t even on my radar back then.
Why would you not spend Thanksgiving with your……family?Its been almost 20 years since then and now I get it.
Because with family living so far away, it isn’t always easy to get together for holidays.
Last year was the first time I had ever spent a Thanksgiving with friends.
Oh yes, my immediate family was with me, but it was the first time we had spent a turkey dinner away from our home with people who weren’t blood-related and you know what?
It was so much fun!
There was even someone named Rachel there!
Totally Friends-like.So in honor of Thanksgiving and friends, Netflix has you covered with some cool friend duo’s.
Like Rory and Lorelai.
Okay, they aren’t technically “friends” even though they act more like friends than mom and daughter.
But they do go to Thanksgiving at friends’ homes.
Or Chris and Martin!
Crap, they aren’t friends either.
But I like to think they are good friends.
At least they seem that way.
Maybe it’s all that good animal/wildlife juju.
Vada and Thomas??
Only don’t watch this before the turkey.
Or you will be all sniffly and junk.
And not be able to fully appreciate the magical qualities of the tryptophan.
By the way, every season of Friends is coming to Netflix January, 1st.
I think you know what I will be doing on New Years Day.
So get out your stretchy pants, the Netflix remote and sit around with your family/friends and have an amazing Thanksgiving.
Monica would want it that way.

using our Netflix. They provided me with a Roku and a voucher for my
