Thanksgiving used to be one day long.
Now the season for giving thanks gives us a whole month of celebrating gratitude, hosting Friendsgivings, and kick-starting the holiday season.
In the office, however, with end-of-year goals sneaking up and holiday party planning in the works, it can be easily missed. This often raises the question: Given everything else going on, is it worth the trouble of planning an office potluck for Thanksgiving? Will my colleagues still be excited, post photos to Instagram, and enjoy the celebration, or will the meal be rushed as everyone is preoccupied with other stressors?
Here are a few ideas to help you decide 1) Is it worth having and 2) If so, how you can organize this event without sacrificing too much of your time.
