    WASHINGTON (AP) — Jill Biden opened the holiday season at the White House by breaking off a sprig from the official Blue Room tree and giving it — and a big smooch — to her toddler grandson. “Look how beautiful this is,” the first lady said of the 18 1/2-foot (5.6 meter) Fraser fir that was delivered by wagon to her Pennsylvania Avenue doorstep by Clydesdale horses named Ben and Winston. “It is beautiful. It’s magnificent, really,” she said Monday. The first lady later joined President Joe Biden for a visit to the Army’s Fort Bragg in North Carolina to celebrate “friendsgiving” with service members and military families. The two events set off a White House holiday season that is expected to be much more festive this year, as public health officials encourage those vaccinated against COVID-19 to get together in person, instead of begging Americans to stay home, as they’ve done for holidays past. The holiday tree was presented by the father-and-son team of Rusty and Beau Estes of Peak Farms in Jefferson, North Carolina — a...

    For many people in the US, the end of November is populated by two holidays: Thanksgiving, the family-oriented mainstay, and, increasingly, Friendsgiving. The unofficial holiday has been growing in popularity for the better part of a decade. First appearing in corners of the internet in 2007, the term “Friendsgiving” didn’t start circulating significantly until 2013, according to Google search data. Since then, though, it’s been ubiquitous. From articles on how to throw a successful Friendsgiving dinner, to an eponymous 2020 Netflix movie, the holiday has come a long way from its casual origins. And though there are no official numbers on how many people celebrate, its rising status in the public consciousness shows just how popular celebrations have become. Why Friendsgiving began to take off Part of the holiday’s rise, Amy Adamczyk, a sociologist and professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, speculated, may have to do with changing economics going back to 2007. Many young people may have moved to a big city for work right when the Great Recession hit, potentially leaving them without enough money to...

    An Oklahoma megachurch has come under fire for urging the 13,000 members of its congregation to ‘bring a neighbor’ to a Thanksgiving service this weekend, as COVID cases and deaths have surged in the state in recent days. The controversy comes as seven Midwestern governors from both sides of the political aisle have penned an op-ed in the Washington Post, urging Americans to stay home this Thanksgiving to stop the virus’ ‘devastating’ spread. The CDC also issued a statement Thursday advising Americans refrain from traveling for the upcoming holiday, pointing to increasing hospitalizations and cases nationwide as reason for its 'strong recommendation'.  Amid the warnings, Victory Church, in Tusla, posted to Facebook on Monday announcing its plan to hold a mass 'Friendsgiving' event this Sunday, encouraging their members to ‘come and share a meal with us & BRING A NEIGHBOR.’ ‘We always look forward to this meal with you,’ the church wrote. ‘All of our campuses will be participating at their facility. Come ready to eat.’ Tulsa's Victory Church (above) has come under fire for promoting a Friendsgiving event that...

    Friends are your chosen family, so this holiday, make sure to remind them why they were picked to be part of your squad. Appropriately dubbed Friendsgiving, this hybrid holiday combines the decadent dinner and gathering from Thanksgiving, but subs out aunts and uncles for best friends, roommates and anyone who needs a place to spend the occasion. Last year, a study looking at the holiday’s popularity found that the majority of young Americans prefer spending the holiday with friends over relatives. So instead of adding friends to an already crowded Thanksgiving table, a new holiday was born. The name “Friendsgiving” was actually just added to the Merriam-Webster dictionary in January 2020, perhaps foreshadowing just how much we would all be needing our friends in the coming year. “People are serious about their Friendsgiving celebrations: there are how-tos, sample menus, rules and even commandments for Friendsgiving. But when Friendsgiving first came into use, it was used to describe something much more informal than the traditional Thanksgiving meal,” reads the dictionary’s website. While this year’s celebrations may need to look different due...
