Friendsgiving is a blend of friend and Thanksgiving. It refers to a large meal eaten with friends either on or near Thanksgiving. People are serious about their Friendsgiving celebrations. There are how-tos, sample menus, rules, and even commandments for Friendsgiving.
But when Friendsgiving first came into use, it was used to describe something much more informal than the traditional Thanksgiving meal.
Friendsgiving seems to be a relatively recent word. The earliest print uses of it that we’ve found so far date back to 2007, where it shows up in Usenet posts and on Twitter to refer to this informal meal.
Several word detectives have found a personal online photo album called “2004 Friendsgiving,” but after some sleuthing, we’ve determined that the album went online sometime in 2014.
Given the fact that the word isn’t explained in these posts and tweets, it’s likely that Friendsgiving was floating around in spoken English for a bit before it showed up in written English. This is pretty standard for new vocabulary.
