  • you just remind them that you get paid extra for working a holiday...therefor will have more money for gifts..that should lift their spirits and also it is good they have a place to go it is not like they have to be home alone while you work

  • Do you work all day? Maybe you could have a big dinner with them even if its with your friends leftovers or have your own thanksgiving your next day off. Its about being thankful so if you cant be thankful on thursday be thankful another time
