Friendsgiving1

noun; blending
A Thanksgiving meal with friends.
 
A Friendsgiving meal is often a substitute for a family Thanksgiving meal, because some students may not be able to go home for the holiday. The term could also be used for an additional meal enjoyed with friends even though each still celebrates Thanksgiving with their family. THis is also a reanalysis, because the initial morpheme in Thanksgiving has nothing to do with family, and it makes no logical sense to replace this with friends. A Friendsgiving meal still includes both thanks and giving.
Etymology : Blend of friend plural + Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is a compound of thanks and giving.
