A collection of our best holiday reads.
Whether you’re hosting a big family feast, attending a neighborhood gathering, celebrating gratitude with a special solo dinner, or spending the day sharing your gifts with those in need, Thanksgiving is an opportunity to pause and focus on what really matters. And, let’s be honest, it also can be a source of stress.
With all that in mind, we’ve collected some of our best Thanksgiving stories, with advice on everything from timing your holiday prep to talking turkey about your workplace challenges; from how to incorporate stretchy waistbands into a stylish outfit (for real!) to how a salumi platter might make the day even better. And if you’re looking for a way to give back, we’ve got that, too.
