5. I had the freedom to skip Thanksgiving and go on vacation! With no one holding you back, you can opt to skip Thanksgiving entirely and go on vacation instead. Grab another single girlfriend and head to the Caribbean or someplace warm. Or, if you like winter sports, head for the mountains to go skiing and snowboarding. I tried this, too, and it was a wonderful time to get away.
