For many young adults, traveling home for the holidays can be a difficult because of time, work and money. However, not being home with your family for the holidays does not have to mean that you don't get to delight in the best meal of the year.

According to, putting together a Friendsgiving celebration - a Thanksgiving meal with your friends - can be even more fun than your traditional family get togethers.

Whether hosting a co-ed bash or a girl's night in, the news source recommends customizing the menu to honor each guest's family traditions. Ask your guests what their favorite dishes are from home and either ask them to bring them or how to make them. In addition, all friends should help with the errands and tasks that are involved - from shopping to chopping.

Friends should not be afraid to get creative with their dishes or simplify old family favorites, but they should have at least one item on the table that is recognizable as Thanksgiving food. Another way to make the Thanksgiving dinner feel more like home is to decorate the table with an elegant Thanksgiving centerpiece or Thanksgiving flowers. In addition, order a Thanksgiving flower delivery home to your family to remind them that you are grateful for them, too.
