Gossip Girl’s Guide to Thanksgiving

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at MMM chapter.

Gossip Girl here. Spotted at the dinner table, wine glass in hand, is one college student prepped and ready to survive this year’s Thanksgiving dinner. Why might you ask? Because they took a few cues from our favorite Upper East Siders. Keep reading for further instructions—gathered from my many sources, of course.

Take a cue from Serena and start the day off with a positive attitude—minus the booze and the near death experience.


Never forget the proper way of celebrating Thanksgiving—eating. You’re a shining young member of society. The proper way is the only way.


All cousins should band together against any rude relatives. RBF is totally genetic.


If the cook is being a bit of a show off, hit them with this comeback that Blair herself would applaud.


Keep the wine close and smile through the hour long story your aunt insists on telling. Poise is power.


If dinner requires relocation, find a place with fries and know that even the Van der Woodsen’s have burnt a turkey or two.


Channel your inner Blair Waldorf and always remember:

After all, you know you love it. XOXO Gossip Girl.
