Do something different - not really in the holiday spirit.
I was really bummed my first thanksgiving away from home. At the last minute I wasn't able to go to my Grandparent's home, and they cook the most amazing thanksgiving dinner ever.
I spent most of the day laying in bed, until my Russian roommate forced to me join him and a friend at an Irish pub. LOL I ended up eating nachos for thanksgiving, drinking beer, and talking about travel. It was a great way to get my mind off of missing thanksgiving.
