Four Things To Bring To The Thanksgiving Table
Public Holidays Global

It's hard to believe that Thanksgiving is just a few days away. While it feels like Halloween just happened yesterday, it's true that the day is almost here and that the holiday shopping season isn't far behind it. But let's focus on what's ahead in the next couple of days. As you get older, you may be expected to start contributing more to dinner. Whether it's something small like utensils or plates, or something a little bigger like cooking part of the meal, a contribution on your part may be expected. If it's your first year doing this, you're out of ideas, or someone is already bringing what you were going to make, you may feel a bit stressed over what to do. Don't worry though, with all of the online resources out there today like Pinterest, there are plenty creative options to make for dinner this year. If you're not really into cooking there's still plenty that you can bring to the table also. So here are four contributions you can make for Thanksgiving this year.

1. Go simple and bring some utensils.

Doesn't get much easier than that, but it's definitely something that's essential to the day. You can go the traditional route and find some silver utensils, or you can spice it up with fall colors like brown, red, and orange. Either way, your family will be thankful that you brought them.

2. Make a dish for the meal.

Whether you go all out and make the turkey, or you bring a dessert, there's so many recipes out there that there's really no end to what you can make. There's everything from intricate dishes that can really showcase your talent for cooking or baking, or simple no-bake dessert and crock-pot recipes that you can just pop in the fridge the night before or cook over night.

3. Bring some games or activities.

If your family is the type to bond over some board games like mine, you might think about bringing some activities to pass the time while you wait for dinner to be ready. It can be as simple as bringing a deck of cards to play Black Jack or Rummy, or a board game like Monopoly that can take hours to play. Either way, it's a great way to bond with your loved ones.

4. When in doubt, bring the drinks.

Whether it's adult beverages, or ones for all ages, this is another great way to contribute to dinner. You can go fancy and bring something like wine or champagne, or just grab a few bottles of Coca-Cola.

So if you're in a pinch this year for something to bring to Thanksgiving, give one of these a try. These four ideas can help make this year just as memorable as before and hopefully get you out of your bind. Happy Thanksgiving!

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List
http://www.factandmyth.com/the-middle-class/are-mi...

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
