  • Vegetarian Thanksgiving: Skyping the holiday meal

    The New York Times - 11/21/2014

    Are you missing the big family gathering for Thanksgiving this year? Try dining by Skype.

    That is what Northeastern University student Madeline Heising did when expensive flights and school obligations kept her away from Thanksgiving dinner with her family during her junior year in college. The technology-assisted holiday meal has now become one of her most cherished Thanksgiving memories.

    “My mom suggested, ‘Why don’t we just Skype you in?’” said Ms. Heising. “At the time I wasn’t sure it would work, but it was actually the perfect way to celebrate Thanksgiving away from home.”
