As you prepare for the holiday season, maybe you’ve been wondering about the best ways to give thanks on Thanksgiving. Well, wonder no more.
There are alternative ways to spend Thanksgiving that will embrace the true spirit of the holiday. From volunteering your time to including others in your celebration and other creative ideas, there are plenty to give back and show your appreciation for others this time of year.
Take a look at some of the best ways to give thanks on Thanksgiving.
1. Volunteer to help make the holiday brighter for someone less fortunate
It’s been said that giving is better than receiving, and volunteering your time on Thanksgiving Day is a good way to reap the benefits of the old adage.
From soup kitchens and food pantries to churches and Meals on Wheels, serving or delivering food to less fortunate families is a great way to spend a few hours on Thanksgiving Day. The time commitment may be minimal but it’s far outweighed by the benefits.
2. Extend an invitation to someone who would welcome the company
It’s never fun to be alone on the holidays. Whether widowed or single, orphaned or separated from family by geography, the prospect of celebrating a holiday by yourself is never fun.
Consider giving someone a much-needed respite from a solo holiday by extending an invitation for lunch or dinner. It may be a small gesture, but it could mean a world of difference to the invitee!
