Friends is one of the best comedies of our time. And one of the reasons it was so great is due to the hilarious Thanksgiving-themed episodes that aired each season. So this year, take a page from Monica’s book and create your own “Friends”-style Thanksgiving, one that would make the whole gang proud!

Step One: Prepare the turkey in advance

Step Two: Buy stretchy pants to facilitate maximum food consumption

Step Three: Invite Brad Pitt over for dinner

Step Four: Put a giant raw turkey on your head

Step Five: Make an English Trifle and Shepherd’s Pie hybrid for dessert

Step Six: Flirt with your brother’s cute friend by holding carrots

Step Seven: Play a friendly game of football with your friends

And there you have it! Your very own “Friends” Thanksgiving!

Happy Turkey-day, America!
