Why Thanksgiving is the Best Holiday to Celebrate in the Office

Thanksgiving is a wonderful holiday to celebrate in the office because it is a feel good holiday. Thanksgiving is all about being grateful for what we have, and of course a delicious feast. There are no worries about presents!

A good way to celebrate would be to have a Pot Luck Lunch. Each employee could bring in a recipe special to his or her family tradition. Sharing stories and traditions is a great way to bring the employees closer and boost morale.


I would also suggest a recipe exchange. There are so many variations of stuffing, dressing and side dishes that it would be interesting to share with each other. I know I love to share recipes and try new ones all the time. Thanksgiving is my holiday; I try to mix it up a little each year. Trying new recipes is a great conversation piece. Also, I know my guests love to try new things and look forward to a new dish. Wouldn’t it be fun to compile these recipes from your coworkers into a cookbook? I’m sure some one would volunteer to put it together, The Best Recipe Cookbook.

Another reason Thanksgiving is the best holiday to celebrate in the office would be to help the needy. Collecting non-perishable goods for a local food pantry or shelter is such a great cause. This year bring the spirit of thanks and maybe it will carry forward into the New Year!

I love the idea of helping the food pantry, each guest can bring a can of food from home to be brought to a local food bank. We send around a sign up sheet so there are no duplicates at the party and all areas are covered

We did a pot luck at one of my other jobs and we wrote out recipe cards to exchange to each other and brought in so many wonderful dishes. It was a great way for all employees to became a little family for the day. It is a great way to celebrate with the people you spend most of your awake hours with weekly. Or a way to get to talk to people you might not know so well or just get some new recipes for your own family to try and enjoy together.

I agree that Thanksgiving is one of the best holidays because one does not have to worry about gifts. However, in my family we all try to out do each other when it comes to the dishes we prepare. A company cookbook sounds perfect. This year I would love to “wow” them with something new and delicious.

Recipe exchange FTW! Love getting peoples recipes that have been put through the crucible of diners throughout the years and perfected.
