Things to do over Thanksgiving Break

By: Anni Ashworth

Thanksgiving is a national time for American families to come together, give thanks, and gain tons of weight from all the delicious food. But as students, we continue to find ourselves with nothing to do over the week-long break every year it rolls around. To help with that boredom, here are a few possibilities.

• Hunting is of course a necessity during break. More than likely, half the population of Ripley spends their entire week in the woods all day.
• Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade has been around for 85 years this November. It’s a classic way to get in the holiday groove. Plus it’s really interesting to see what crazy ideas people have.

• Volunteering at a local food pantry is always open, too. Or even just making an extra dish of food to be donated to those pantries to people that can’t afford Thanksgiving dinner.

• Football is a must. Thanksgiving is the time for huge rivalries. For example, West Virginia University VS Pitt is on the 25th.

• There’s Black Friday shopping as well, because who wouldn’t want to be trampled in order to get that perfect deal on that perfect outfit?

• Doing all that homework you’ve been putting off so you don’t have to cram it in the day before is a really good idea too. Being a procrastinator is not always a good thing, especially when you complain about having nothing to do every day you have off.

• Basically, just spend time with your family doing the little things you love. There’s no reason to ever complain about having nothing to do. Would you rather be in school those five days?


  1. You must be a kind people because you share your knowledge through articles. You like to read them. They are really good for everyone. Can you upload more articles? I believe that many people like me wait for your next posts.

  2. That is two millennia of knowledge, civilization and human achievement razed to nothingness by Fascist aggression. Like a terrified Aeneas on the run, Eliot flees the burning shores of Europe to seek reparation to the damages, caused by Western imperialist violence, in the ancient spirituality of the Upanishadas, in its enduring message of peace, compassion and generosity. The coda of The Wasteland is a random series of neurotic visions of a disintegrating reality that is finally salvaged by the incantatory chanting of 'Shantih'.
