8 Reasons to Get Hype For Thanksgiving As Told By New Girl

While it’s still a bit early to start blasting Mariah Carey’s "All I Want for Christmas is You," another well-loved and well-deserved holiday is coming up on our calendars. With only about two weeks left until Thanksgiving, the longing for full bellies and lazy days grows within our hearts, and here are some of the reasons for those feelings as told by New Girl.

Days to sleep in 

For the first time since the beginning of the semester there is a full week where you can sleep in to your heart's content, with no fears of missing an 8am or midterm exam. After months of exhausting work, who doesn't just want to sleep the break away?

Hometown Friends

If you and your gang parted ways as college began, Thanksgiving is the perfect time to reconnect and catch up about all the crazy things that have happened.

Glow Ups

With all the time away from home, its the perfect time to whip out your best outfits to show everyone back home how good you look. 

Food, food, and more food

Home-cooked meals are a rarity in college life, so stuff yourself full of as much food as you can to support yourself until Christmas.


All of the fall leaves and cool days provide the perfect setting for autumnal photoshoots to spice up your feed.

Black Friday

Albeit possibly one of the most traumatizing days of the year, with Thanksgiving comes Black Friday and the opportunity to blow any money you have on things you probably don't need for great prices!

Christmas season approaches

Be honest, the day after Thanksgiving is the commencement of the Christmas Season.

Realization of Exams

As the good feelings die down and the packing begins, the fact of exams coming around in the next two weeks hit you like a wrecking ball. But, still hold onto the idea that Christmas is approaching and with it another opportunity to embrace a food coma and ignore all the stress of classes!

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, enjoy it!
