We all think of Thanksgiving break as the time when you eat way too much mashed potatoes and turkey – except for your great aunt’s turkey because she always overcooks hers. However, there are several ways to make the best of your break other than eating two servings of turkey.

Volunteering in our community

You can’t spell “Thanksgiving” without “giving”. When you’re gathered around your dining room table with family and plenty of food, think about how you can give back to others. If you are involved in clubs at GRC such as FFA or Beta, you should consider delivering the Thanksgiving baskets. If you are busy that day, places such as the Beacon of Hope and CC’s Closet are always open to volunteers.

Help out in the kitchen

Making a Thanksgiving meal is exhausting and time consuming. There’s always something to do in the kitchen. And while you’re there, you can make sure your mom doesn’t skimp out on the brown sugar in the sweet potato casserole.

Christmas shopping

Black Friday and Cyber Monday are right around the corner so quit procrastinating buying that secret Santa gift for your friend’s holiday party. Getting some of your Christmas shopping done early will ensure you get a thoughtful gift for everyone on your list.

Homework

I know, I know after that ginormous meal all you want to do is settle in for a five-hour nap. Don’t do it! Instead, get up and get that homework done that your teacher assigned you over break. Finish the semester out strong; you’re almost there!

Don’t be a bum this Thanksgiving break. Try out some of these tips and make the most of your time off.
