When it comes to big holidays such as Thanksgiving, you might imagine a fully-loaded table full of food with plenty of friends and family gathered around. However, what if you’re on your own this Thanksgiving? Just because you’re on your own doesn’t mean you have to spend the day looking forward to a TV dinner. In fact, this can be the perfect day to spend by yourself.
Maybe it’s just us, but Thanksgiving just doesn’t seem the same without tuning into the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Showing at 9am in every time zone, it’s a perfect start to solo holiday. Since you’re not having to deal with relatives running around or someone fretting over the best way to cook a turkey, you can also make yourself a leisurely breakfast to go with that.
Just because you’re alone doesn’t mean you can’t have a great dinner on Thanksgiving, particularly if you have a slow cooker. Put this recipe on low in your slow cooker around 11am and 6 hours later dinner is done. If it’s not Thanksgiving without turkey, you can easily substitute turkey breast in this recipe. Turn it on, kick back and let the slow cooker do all the work. Better yet — you’ll just have one pot to wash afterwards.
November usually has a pre-Christmas cornucopia of great films, and this year is no exception. Heading out to the cinema on your own means you get to see exactly what you want — no exceptions. Want to see what’s playing? Check out trailers and book your tickets via Fandango.com.
You’d have to be living under a rock not to know the day after Thanksgiving is Black Friday. However, there are plenty of stores offering discounts and pre-sales on Thanksgiving. You can keep up with what’s going on sale when and where by visiting TheBlackFriday.com. Word of warning: if you’re enjoying your alone time, be prepared to hit the crowds, even on turkey day.
