Be honest—there's at least one dish you keep on your Thanksgiving table out of pity. And if it weren't for the single outspoken proponent in your family you'd leave it out altogether. Sometimes though, even the unanimous favorite gets left out. For my family it's the rolls. They're completely forgotten... until we start eating and notice something isn't quite right. It's a McFarland Thanksgiving tradition.
In college, my friends started Fakesgiving—a night to celebrate Thanksgiving together before everyone went home for the holidays. Our school is on the quarter system and winter break is from Thanksgiving until New Year’s Day. That’s a month and a half of break and since my college is known for it’s international student population, my friends went home to all corners of the world.
