Make a Thanksgiving special.
If you don�t have guests or friends over for Thanksgiving, there are a few other ways to get together.
If your family doesn�t live close enough to each other, you can make Thanksgiving a special holiday dinner.
For example, you could celebrate a birthday or a big day by bringing a group of friends to dinner, or you can go out for a weekend barbecue.
Or you can even go to a turkey farm to get your turkey.
Or maybe you want to bring your family to Thanksgiving dinner with you.
In fact, you�re free to bring people and families along if you�ve been to a family farm in the past.
Or even just pick up some turkeys to bring to a local farm.
