I can’t believe we’re already halfway through November. Thanksgiving is all but here and then Christmas is right around the corner! This month we're all about Friendsgiving, a popular take on Thanksgiving when friends come together to celebrate good food and great company.
Whether you're planning a Friendsgiving feast or sticking to your traditional Thanksgiving routine, show your kids why friends are worth being thankful for with this month's picks. Explore lessons about friendship from a few of the greatest duos, including Rory and Lorelai, Charlotte and Wilbur and Bob and Larry, whose all-new Netflix original, “VeggieTales in the House,” starts streaming Nov. 26. We LOVE VeggieTales and I’m super excited for this!
Check out our list of ‘dynamic duo’ titles to stream on Netflix, which demonstrate the value of all kinds of friendships — whether it's a sibling bond, classmate or furry friend. If you need some thought starters on how to spark a conversation around friendship with your kids, check out these tips from Common Sense Media.
(And in case you missed it, America's favorite “Friends” — all 10 seasons of them — hit the service Jan. 1. Mark your calendars!)

Cucumber Rolls with Veggie(Tales) Cream Cheese
Celebrate the launch of VeggieTales (or just enjoy a pre-Friendsgiving snack) with cucumber roll-ups stuffed with veggie cream cheese. Anything can go into cucumber rolls, but for this version we're sticking to sun-dried tomatoes for Bob the Tomato, a celery stalk for Frankencelery and baby carrots for Laura Carrot.
