The beginning of Thanksgiving week means hundreds of Facebook statuses and Instagram pictures of people checking into airports and bus stations. If you made the decision to spend Thanksgiving in Berkeley or even if you’re new to the Bay Area, here are some Thanksgiving must-do’s that you should include on your holiday bucket list!
1. Embrace the holiday spirit with some shopping
Thanksgiving is a definite mark for the beginning of the holiday season. After you’re done stuffing yourself with turkey, remember to prepare for the huge Black Friday crowds. Fifty-percent off sales are no joke, but shopping with close Berkeley friends can make this a hilariously memorable experience!
2. Ice skate your happy holiday butt off
So maybe our part of California doesn’t get incredibly freezing (thank goodness). That doesn’t mean you can’t participate in traditional holiday activities like ice skating. Among various ice skating rinks in the Bay Are, Embarcadero and Union Square are the most popular (and easy to find) ice skating sites.
3. Watching a holiday show
Instead of laying in bed browsing through TV channels to see when your local cable provider is going to start obnoxiously re-playing Miracle on 34th Street, watch your favorite holiday classics in person!
4. Host a after-Thanksgiving dinner party
So many leftovers, so many opportunities. After you’ve celebrated the holiday with your family, celebrate it with your friends with a leftover theme party.
