The world is a bit more familiar with Friendsgiving, which is a celebration before or after Thanksgiving for friends to gather together over food and fellowship. Now, people have discovered a new reason to gather their crew and celebrate the holidays, introducing the idea of “Friendsmas.” We have gathered a few ways for you to celebrate inside.

According to Urban Dictionary, “Friendsmas” is when friends get together to consume large quantities of delicious food and exchange gifts. Back in our day, friends may have called this sort of gathering a “trim the party” or simply, a holiday get together. We love that the celebration finally has its own unique name.

There are many ways to gather amongst friends over food and the season’s cheer. Some things friends may choose to do at a Friendsmas celebration could be decorating gingerbread houses, drinking hot chocolate with one another, watching classic Christmas movies, and listen to classic Christmas songs. 

The idea is that you are with friends, celebrating the holidays with each other.

When do you host a Friendsmas party? It doesn’t have to take place on Christmas Day. Some may celebrate ahead of the holiday or shortly after. While others, who may live out of state and away from their family members, could choose to celebrate on Dec. 25. The priority is finding a date that is suitable for the entire friend group to be together and properly plan accordingly.

Here’s a list of fun Friendsmas activities for you and your crew:

  1. Make Gingerbread Houses
  2. Watch Classic Christmas Movies
  3. Drink Hot Chocolate
  4. Have A Potluck
  5. Listen to Classic Christmas Songs
  6. Play Festive Holiday Games
  7. Play In The Snow
  8. Walk/Drive Around The Neighborhood To Observe The Lights
  9. Make Vision Boards
  10. Secret Santa or White Elephant Gift Exchange

We hope you have a very, merry Friendsmas! Share some of your fun Friendsmas party ideas below.
