Friendsgiving Quotes For The Best Meal Of The Year

Celebrate your chosen family.

For our family, Thanksgiving is our favorite holiday because we spend the week leading up to it and the day of reflecting on all we are grateful for, and how lucky we are, as well as spreading the love to those in need. The meal is the icing on the cake. But what can make Thanksgiving not so wonderful is awkward family dinners. There’s your mean uncle Bob who gets drunk, political and rude. Your cousins are still feuding from last year. Your aunt Lois always has something negative to say and she complains about the food you’ve probably been working on for over for a week. This is why we love Friendsgiving, and these Friendsgiving quotes that celebrate it.

On Friendsgiving, you get all the positive aspects of sharing a meal with people you chose to invite and get along with, and reflecting on all you’re thankful for — including each other. If you’re looking for quotes for social media photos capturing this fun event, or if you’re looking for something to write in your Friendsgiving invitation, I’ve got you covered with these Friendsgiving quotes.
