Thanksgiving can definitely be tricky when you’re dating someone, and have to decide where to spend the holiday. Spend the holiday with their family and your family will be upset. Celebrate with your family and their family will be upset. It can feel like a no-win situation, but if you haven’t committed yet to a plan because you don’t want to upset anyone, here are four options for how to spend Thanksgiving as a couple.
#1.) Alternate Thanksgiving dinners- If your families live far away from each other, you can either spend the holiday separately or agree to do one family’s Thanksgiving this year, and the other family next year.
#2.) Do both Thanksgiving lunch and dinner- If everyone lives close enough, try to get one of your families to do their meal earlier in the day, like a Thanksgiving lunch. Then head over to the other family’s place for dinner.
#3.) Host Thanksgiving dinner yourself- If you’re up for it, the best way to make everyone happy is to just host dinner at your place, and invite both families.
#4.) Do Thanksgiving dinner for two- If your families are too far away, you’re too broke to travel, or you just don’t want to deal with all the chaos, there’s nothing wrong with breaking tradition and doing Thanksgiving dinner with just the two of you.
