SEASON 3: THE ONE WITH THE FOOTBALL. The gang plays a 28-minute game of football and competes for the Geller Cup (a troll doll). The game ends with Ross and Monica refusing to admit defeat to each other, while the gang goes back to the apartment to eat Thanksgiving dinner: Turkey (the leg for Joey), stuffing, yams with marshmallows, cranberry sauce and mashed potatoes, which. Friendsgiving: Thanksgiving Intel According to Our Community [Infographic] November 22, 2017 / jeanettehorton Some might say truth is stranger than fiction — until you watch all 10 Thanksgiving episodes of “Friends” back to back.

Friendsgiving is a blend of friend and Thanksgiving, and it refers to a large meal eaten with friends either on or near Thanksgiving.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 or friendsgiving: Here’s what you need to know to get you through the holiday. Here’s our guide to help you get through putting together the big Thanksgiving meal.

One of the best things about hosting Friendsgiving is that it can be whatever you want it to be—but it should definitely be fun.Ideally, the convivial atmosphere will develop naturally, but there are plenty of things you can do to help it along, besides just breaking out Cards Against Humanity again (not that there’s anything wrong with that). Try these fun Friendsgiving games, icebreakers. The heaviest turkey on record, according to the Guinness Book of Records, weighed 86 pounds. California consumes the most turkeys in the U.S. on Thanksgiving Day.

  • My husband hates my mother’s cooking, so we usually host thanksgiving every year. My husband is an amazing cook! And I like hosting because I can drink to my heart’s content and pass out wherever I damn well please.

  • So annoying when someone you’re talking to whips out a phone and starts flicking through social media am I really that boring? No, don’t answer that:-) As for Harry Potter, I have the full set and yet have to read them should I? I obviously bought them with reading in mind but I hear good and bad things about these books……Great video, keep up the good work, watched with great interest. Thank you

  • As Muslims there are a lot of things to celebrate like Ramadan it lasts for a month and we fast on it after the end of it comes Eid El Fitr and we celebrate by eating candy and seeying each other and there are many celebrations �� but it’s cool tho ���� thanks for explaining

  • Anybody else catch that RuPaul “supermodel” reference???
    “Strut your stuff, baby. Wet your wattle/lips and make love to the camera.”
    Just when I thought I couldn’t like this channel more ��

  • I’m glad you’re giving thanks giving some love, everyone focuses on Halloween and skips to Christmas. Now your skipping to thanksgiving! Ha ha.

  • Happy Thanksgiving to you n yours and thank you for the love u/dumb bit one for now. I’m sure more to follow And thank you so much for mentioning CA. You’re an absolute treasure…Getting me to sign up to patreon is a bigger deal than you will ever know lol.

  • As a Californian who went through the devastating Tubbs fire in 2017, I can really appreciate the ending and generosity Jebb. Thank you.

  • I hadn’t heard about the Bruderhoff until yesterday and at first I felt sorry for them because they don’t have technological devices until I found out that they don’t want them.
    Everyone looks so happy.

  • I work and Sell Online and have such a Great FB Community to talk, support and help each other sell online. It stead of competing online we figure out how to better each other and we all win! 

  • Hey Ronnie, I would like to know more about Christmas and what expressions do you use or something like that, I mean, could you please make a video about that? ThankU
    UR awesome

  • It was always easy at our house: if you’re hosting, you make the turkey, stuffing, and gravy, PERIOD. Everybody else brings the sides and desserts.
    Just thaw the turkey in the fridge for a few days, and Thanksgiving morning, get up early and watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade while you stuff that turkey and get it in the oven, have a light brunch, set the table, take a shower, and smell the delicious turkey roasting while you wait for everyone to show up with salads and casseroles and rolls and pies and cheese trays, etc.

  • Mef! While I totally respect your decision on doing public domain movies I would literally kill to see your dirty dancing explained for

  • Thank you… I need to be learn thankfulness… “Physically and spiritually we are submerged in the sea of God’s favor. He has provided our foods, drink and other requirements; His favors encompass us from all directions. The sustenances provided for man are blessings.” Baha’i Faith

  • FOR thankgiving in america, they hide the real history about it.
    They wont share the real history, because it was really sad.
    Did guys heard that she said, which GOD they have been giving thank?

  • Boy, I highly enjoy collaborative Youtube endeavors. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to be a contribution to the topic of community! There are countless to join, contribute to, and even create. =)

  • There is a harvest thanksgivingfest in Germany according to calendar. But nobody greets and even refers to that. Not even media. Not even religious people. And that day is not that late in the year. We don’t have anything to harvest that late. There’s barely anything to harvest in fall at all here.
    About North American Thanksgiving, what is about the turkey? Why does a turkey have so much importance in a day that is about harvest?

  • No rich no poor and no blacks! Where are the black people? Where is the cultural aspect? I’m sure they do not encourage people of color joining them. For good loving people the Bruderhof people seem quite tribal racists and intolerant.

  • but i wanna ask you why don’t you believe in God and i’m sure you believe in mind,love,…etc and you haven’t seen any of them.
    same dear Ronnie if u think and feel you will believe.
    i like you Ronnie you r my best teacher that’s why i’m worried about you.

  • Wy are people so bothered when people say they dont believe in god.

    Lord of the rings is not real but i am not botherd by it wish it was tough

  • Harry Potter? a book about sorcery and witchcraft? No christian should be reading such filth, no matter how interesting we may think it is, it is filth and an abomination in the eyes of God.

  • ✨��✨��✨ Happy Family day to a real sweet heart ❤️ Today I plan to stay in my cozy house & watch movies.. I bought the “ HANGOVER “ trilogy. It should be a blast ������

  • I like to entertain, Thanksgiving is always a nice rush for me. I haven’t celebrated in five years so I miss it. But I don’t miss the family aspect.��

  • You’re right about being American, vs not. My wife is unluckily not a blessed American, and even on turkey day she just don’t get the joy that is a pre made Costco pumpkin pie!

  • There are many people that call the Bruderhof a cult and say that these videos are just ‘slickly’ created propaganda. For those people, they mostly are liberals or are ones who don’t belong in community to begin with.

    However, I must say the thing that is important to me is friendships. I also don’t want to be part of a group where leadership ‘controls’ them or where you are being micro-managed. Can you address these two concerns?

  • You gained my heart! You know that México is in North America:3 few people know that and they think Mexico is central America or even worst, South America but no!! We are right in the north.

  • Hey Ronnie. I’m Chern I just came across your English teaching video today and I like your teaching style so much. it made me laugh and fun.

  • Thank you… “The truth is that God has endowed man with virtues, powers and ideal faculties of which nature is entirely bereft and by which man is elevated, distinguished and superior. We must thank God for these bestowals, for these powers He has given us, for this crown He has
    placed upon our heads.” ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Foundations of World Unity

  • It is weird when  people call AMERICA to the U.S. or Hispanic to let´s say Mexicans, Guatemalan etc. It is like saying that Canadians are also Americans because of their appearenace,and same language; or if people would call  Americans and Canadians  something like Brithish or English.people.

  • Had a moment where I thought “Hey that chick sounds like me” clicks back to the tab “French the Llama, that is me!” proceeds to share on ALL the social networks

  • And Jeb, I think you would have loved to spend Thanksgiving with the “Golden Girls” in the flesh along with Mr. Bean himself he is one funny Bit! As for you, Have a joyous Thanksgiving Day. It’s really not about the food or the game or anything else it’s about the things we have and what the future may bring. As for Turkey well, you don’t have to eat one if you don’t want too. My mom one year did a Pork Roast along with all the other things, she was ill that first time, back in 1972 and Turkey was at an end in our house. Life happens, she would not see Thanksgiving in 1976The day has never quite been the same, yet I am very Thankful, and not because it’s also pig out day or that in a few hours it’s going to shop till you drop day, No, I am thankful for well still being here, living where I live and being a Citizen of the United States of AmericaSoon my favorite Christmas Movie will be on the TV for 24 hours straight and I will do my best to watch all 24 hours of it, came close once. All I will say is that there is a BB gun involved in the plot. You have a good one Jeb along with your family.

  • Jed, I just stumbled on your channel. Thank you so much for the donations for last November. Not only are your videos funny as Hell, we appreciate any help we got. Thank you!

  • That’s very sweet of you to do that Jeb!! My husband and I love your videos, and really like the new content because we feel like we’re getting to know you a little better ���������� We’re watching this on Thanksgiving and we are thankful for you and the time you spent making these videos just so we can have a little entertainment in our lives��������������

  • very good to watch… i admire you mom. but one thing i dont understand is “Abraham Lincoln would give thanks God”. Who is God? I dont know…If you are a teacher  you might know who is Abraham Lincoln’s God. 

  • It’s an interesting holiday.Early North American celebrated a harvest in a harsh winter.I want to know more about American holidays

  • Yes, please comment the BBC documentary “my dark past growing up in a rural english commune”. What do you think about everything the young leavers tell about abusive Leadership, public humiliation, forced seperation and so on. Or is it in your opinion untrue what they are saying? I love you guyes from the Bruderhof but i also know about a bunch of people who left and are still waiting for reconciliation and the confession of faults, made in the past. The Internet is full of it and I would like to ask you to adress that in your videos as there is so much confusion about that topic… thank you very much!

  • Well.. we also hv thanksgiving here in north borneo.. and it was celebrated on every 30 & 31 may.. but we don’t officially called it thanksgiving instead we called it ‘Pesta Kaamatan’ which means The Harvest Festival.. you can goggle it if you want to know more about that harvest festival

  • Our online community is the most important thing to me regarding making online videos. If it weren’t the huge group of amazing people engaging with us on our videos, I would have quit a long time ago. The human interaction really makes YouTube what it is and I love it!

  • I just had my first Thanksgiving with my boss’ “adopted” American family (boss is Brazilian just like me). It was pretty cool, and since everything is closed around campus I was so happy to have tons of coffee and homemade food. I even sitted at the kids table with a bunch of other teenagers. Also, you guys named the bird after a country, Turkey. In Portuguese they tried to be fancy and sound foreign, so we call it Peru.

    By the way, I loved the charity work. What a fabulous muffin you are, Jeb. Have a nice holiday:)

  • I love this video! I created a online video event in the netherlands around online video and people who love online video… and youtube:) so proud of to be a part of this community.

  • You know, as someone who has been uploading to Youtube for a few months and felt a community of people grow around me, I really enjoyed this video. The way that anyone can create something from something they love, enjoy or care about and evolve a community of people with the same passion I think is amazing. From people uploading music, make-up tips and crafting tutorials to funny clips of anything and so many more, it is the way that we can all come together and make great things we all love and enjoy.
    Yeah you get trolls, flamers, haters or whatever but as a whole, the people that are a part of these communities truely are great!

    Really great video!

  • Dear ms.Ronnie:Tomorrow will be thanksgiving,so I would like to send a package of turkey breast branded ‘Oscar meyer’to you as a celebrating gift./Jimmy

  • dang it, I really wanted to contribute to this video, I’ve been so wrapped up in the short film I’m making I havent been paying much attention to my good ol’ friendly youtube community… poop.

  • I can not stand your sarcastic mentality. You clearly do not appreciate the day of giving thanks. You should go live in a third world country that doesn’t have the luxury of celebrating the day of harvest so that you will learn to be more appreciative!

  • No turkey at my house! My dad never liked it so we always had ham. I grew up never eating turkey and have never had a taste for it so in my family we follow my family tradition of ham for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. Yummy

  • hi ronie… I love watching your videos… here in the Philippines… we celebrates fiesta for every province…its more like thanksgiving…but Christmas is really the thanksgiving for us… being thankful for what’s God gave us…not just food…but our life… thanks

  • Thanks for the update. The harbor seems very abandonded. It is so beautiful and yet sad. I think that boat at the end, that Valdur says “Crazy nice boat” about was docked there when I was there way back in 2017. It looks exactly the same and in the same spot. Anyone know about it?

    Stay safe you all and take this Covid thing seriously. Iceland did SO well for so many months. Don’t get lax. The U.S. is paying that price.

    Love from Minneapolis!

  • Hey wait wait wait… one other thing. Get your kicks on ROOT Sixty-Six. We didn’t make that up. Somebody in the States just got it right.:)

  • Hey, all that’s true for us, too; we just do Thanksgiving on Columbus Day-you know, the day the whole place was “discovered”… at least according to white folks. Why don’t you do that too? Then you’ll never forget what day it is. Also: go Pats.:)

  • Mythology is great but I don’t like when is a religion in this time. But I’m ok with this tradition for the food. Happy Black Friday!! Only the most people that is not happy to hear America (country) are people from Latin America. Even Japanese people put アメリカ(Amerika) and アメリカ人 (Amerika jin)。

  • “if you live in Canada”, “if you live in America”… but isn’t Canada in American Continent? Why people from USA think they are the only americans? Or why they think that only USA is America?

  • Its sad to think that our health care system at this point in the United States is more of a disease management system than health care system. 

  • I just finished cooking all the food and I gave a deep tissue massage to my one and only. So i guess I should get some sleep before the holiday fun. Happy thanksgiving Everyone!

  • In China, the festival we celebrate for harvest is Mid-autumn Festival. It is held on the 15th of day of the 8th month of the lunar Calendar. The festival celebrates three fundamental concepts that are closely connected: gathering, thanksgiving, and praying. We eat mooncake and enjoy full moon on that day.

  • Respectfully, the question about Harry Potter isn’t just about whether or not it is ‘about sorcery and witchcraft’ and is ‘filth’ but that these books are stories of friendship, loyalty, taking sides in the fight between good and evil, standing up for what it right, sacrifice for the common good and things bigger than yourself and redemption when you have gone down the wrong path. Isn’t that what Jesus taught? I actually see these books as a type of allegory of Jesus’ teaching and his life-he ran against the grain of those in power, stood His ground, taught love in the face of hate and evil and forgave those who wronged Him. You could do worse than reading Harry Potter. If you read these books and understand what truth is and how to help your fellow person or come to a new perspective on your place in the world, then these books are a treasure. Just my two cents…

  • and what about the Indians? I thoough, Indians helped to Settlers to survive winter in America and gave them food… despite the Settlers took them their lands and killed them… 

  • You see the USA kick butt in the Olympics every couple of years but if you spend some time in average America, you can see why we are 33rd.

  • I thought thanksgivig was a celebration only of the settlers, because they defended their newly acquired territorries against hundreds of thousand evil native men, women, children and elders who already lived there, and how they got help with hard labour from these native people for free for the rest of their lives… oh wait, am I wrong?

    Pilgrims/Settlers > Pilagers

  • I can tell you’re not from anywhere near Timmonsville. In Timmonsville, the word “aunt” is pronounced to rhyme with “paint.” You kept pronouncing it to rhyme with “font.”

  • Jeb, thank you so much for your kindness to those suffering in California! This reaffirms by belief that you are a wonderful soul. Enjoy your Thanksgiving!

  • Lol love it �� never quite understood thanksgiving being a Brit and all. But I suppose you guys don’t really understand bonfire night/Guy Fawkes either ��.
    And the proper pronunciation of routes is roots. Stick your rowts where the turkey don’t shine.

    Love you mef never clicked watch so fast ��

  • my friends from a Hatari Discord server somehow all want to go to Airwaves and they were really concerned when they read about the new testing rules, saying if that stays they probably won’t be able to go

  • Do Christmas! Pagan past co opted by nutty Evangelicals who think they started it. (Still want you to do legend myth and lore…) Don’t forget Shakespeare!!! Moliere! Greek classics! Oedipus alone is a Trilogy!.. I will giggle with glee and wait patiently… ����������

  • You sound like you’re getting better since the last time we spoke. Glad to hear from ya.
    Happy Thanksgiving bay, to you and yo mama.

  • Hi there. You know America ain’t USA right? America is both South, Centre and North America. Every time you say thanksgiving in America, that’s just wrong. Thanksgiving is only in Canada and USA. NOT America, but USA.

  • Hi Ronnie…, thanks for your English lessons and explanations.
    Here, in Brazil, we also have a day of thanksgiving (in Brazilian Portuguese Ação de Graças), celebrated since August 17, 1949 (Federal Law 781/1949) always on 4th Thursday in November (as in the United States). Here the holiday is religious, but no Catholic origin, dedicated to the worship in churches. We do not make special meals such as turkey, chicken, etc.

  • I smiled throughout this whole video but that last message about the fires warmed my heart (no pun intended) God bless all those families that are suffering and God bless you, Jeb.

  • Notification for this popped up at my Thanksgiving: The Sequel but I didn’t want to be That Sumbit. Finally enjoying it @ the Chill House & so glad to have it part of my 2018 Turkey Day Grand Finale. Thankful for you, Jeb! ❤����

  • I am from Colombia. The majoriy of people in my country is Catholic. I am protestant and the Church wich I attend we celebrate Thanksgiving the last week in December

  • Sir, you are, with out question, one of the funniest people I’ve ever heard. But, you are now a great American in my mind, because of your explanation of our Thanksgiving holiday to non-Americans.
    God bless and help those in California affected by the wildfires. To those who read this posting, remember to give thanks to the good lord for the things those people can not have this day.
