The Ultimate Thanksgiving Survival Guide

We here at The Frisky have a love/hate relationship with Thanksgiving. We love the food, but hate the stress of cooking. We love our families, but hate the awkward things they say. We love going home, but hate traveling.

We have so many things to look forward to (yummy pie) and just as many to avoid (politics). Don’t let any of the usual holiday quarrels ruin your holiday. This year, you will have a game plan. The following gallery contains everything you need to navigate Thanksgiving like a pro. We encourage you to use this survival guide as light reading on your voyage home, or a quick reference under the dining room table as you decide whether to have a third helping of stuffing.

How To Manage A Food Addiction Over The Holidays

food addiction

The holidays remind us of family get-togethers sharing food, laughter and bonding. But if you are a food addict, the holidays may be one big, guilt-ridden binge. Food addicts think about food and have memories of food too, but they will most likely be linked with memories of hiding it, being punished by withdrawal of food, or being abandoned from loving relationships and using eating as a means of comfort. With all of these complicated issues surrounding the act of eating, it’s no wonder the holidays are so stressful for people who struggle with food addictions. The frenzy and excitement brings stress, and food addicts comfort and calm their stress with food. How can you help if you are addicted, married to or know a food addict during the holidays?

Jingle Balls, I Mean, Bells

Nothing says peace on Earth, sugar cookies and Grandma like Christmas carols played with bells attached to a dude’s junk, amirite? Kmart’s holiday commercial features six male models shaking bells on their penises — hidden beneath their Joe Boxers, of course — to the tune of “Jingle Bells.” The gag is subtle enough that little kids might not understand, but strange enough that adults will feel a mix of “ew” and “cool!”  Whether you think playing “Jingle Balls” with your junk is vulgar or good-natured fun, you have to admit it takes coordination!

Not all is lost to the Grinch this holiday season: Black Friday deal-hunters seem to be camping out earlier every year, and most major stores are starting the shopping frenzy early in the morning on Thanksgiving Day. Well, finally there’s some sanity this year: Costco, Nordstrom and BJ’s Wholesale Club refuse to take part in that fun-sucking disaster. This makes me pretty happy for their thousands of employees who were no doubt dreading having to work on a holiday that’s all about family time.

“Our employees work especially hard during the holiday season, and we simply believe that they deserve the opportunity to spend Thanksgiving with their families,” Paul Latham, the company’s Costco’s VP for membership and marketing, told The Huffington Post. “Nothing more complicated than that.” Keep reading »
