One of the traditions I like, which we've only had the chance to do once, is Friendsgiving. We all have friends who are like family to us; some friends are more like family than actual family members. Whether you're celebrating the holiday together with friends in advance of a family Thanksgiving, or because you can't get home to see your relatives for various reasons, it's nearly guaranteed to be a memorable good time.
Maybe you can't get home because your family lives too far away for you to go back for just the weekend (or perhaps you don't have Friday off, or worse, Thursday). If your friends all come from different places, you can throw a little healthy rivalry into the revelry with these West and East Coasters from Paper Trail.
A couple of years ago, I went to a friend's wedding in California. The bride and groom, both of whom I went to high school with, are from the East coast but live in California. The wedding had a contingent of friends and family from each side of the country and there was a hilarious back-and-forth about which coast was better. It bonded us to some of the other friends we hadn't met before and was just a lot of fun. With these amusing coasters, your friends can call out their loyalties and keep glass rings off your table at the same time.
