Friends Thanksgiving Episodes, Ranked

Friends Thanksgiving Episodes

Holidays can be a joyous time with family — or a wonderful time to catch up with Friends.

The 1990s sitcom made Thanksgiving an annual tradition — except for that one year where Ross was preoccupied with the world’s most unnecessary pros-and-cons list (Julie, really?!) — leaving millions of viewers to anticipate how the Central Perk dwellers would celebrate the gluttonous occasion. Whether the holiday was marked by the disappearance of a certain Macy’s Parade staple, or the arrival of A-list guest stars like Brad Pitt and Christina Applegate, you knew to expect something special.
