How Long You Can Safely Eat Thanksgiving Leftovers
It’s been days since your Thanksgiving dinner and that means you’ve probably had several rounds of turkey feast leftovers by now. But if you’re fridge is still full of food from your holiday feast, you’ve probably wondered exactly how long it’s safe to eat.
To simplify things and keep us from getting sick, FoodSafety.gov has put together a handy guide to consuming leftover Thanksgiving food. It all starts with getting those leftovers in the fridge within two hours of serving, so let’s hope you did that back on Thursday. It’s important not to leave food sitting out longer because as the FDA points out, “harmful bacteria grow rapidly at room temperature,” so better safe than sorry.
As for how long it’s safe to eat those leftovers after they hit the fridge, both the FDA and foodsafety.gov advise eating your Thanksgiving turkey and all the trimmings within four days, which makes your deadline for leftovers tomorrow, Tuesday, November 27th.
But that’s just a guideline and if your food starts to smell funky before then, the FDA says trash it. FDA consumer educator Marjorie Davidson advises, “A good rule to follow is, when in doubt, throw it out.”
Only Half Of Men Say A Kiss Counts As Cheating
There’s definitely a spectrum where cheating gets worse and worse. Is just a kiss better than straight up having sex with someone else while you’re in a relationship? Probably. But is it still cheating? YES. So what’s up with all these men thinking a kiss is “just a kiss” and doesn’t count as being unfaithful!?
According to new research, about half of the men surveyed agree that a kiss is cheating compared to 73% of women. What’s worse? The same number of men think that cyber sex also doesn’t count as cheating – while 75% of women disagree. There’s some hope, though – 91% of all people think that sleeping with someone while you’re with someone else is definitely cheating (though we’re still wondering about that other 8%).
Let’s get to the bottom of this, though. Just kissing someone while you’re with someone else IS being unfaithful – as much as half the men in our lives seem to wish it wasn’t. We’ve all got different ideas of what intimacy means, but if you’re snuggling up next to anyone or even just sending flirty texts while you’re in a committed relationship, you’re really in the red zone!
Your Partner Is Most Likely To Cheat On Friday Nights
If you’re worried about your S.O. cheating and they’ve developed a sudden interest in working out on the weekends, listen up. A new survey reveals there’s a prime time for being unfaithful and it’s Friday at 6:45pm. And the survey is from IllicitEncounters.com, a UK website that matches married people looking for affairs, so they really know their stuff.
The site for cheaters asked 1,000 of its users about their infidelity practices and found that Friday nights are the most popular time for cheating, followed by Tuesday evenings. Illicit Encounters also asked about the excuses people give their partners when they’re heading out for a hookup and found the top cover-up lie is spending the night out with coworkers, with going to the gym coming in a close second. And 30% of the cheaters surveyed say they’ve actually sought out someone at the gym to have an affair with.
"What this new research shows is that cheats are creatures of habit," explains Christian Grant, a spokesman for IllicitEncounters.com. "They have strict routines which they tend to stick to when they are seeing their lover."
The infidelity and all the lies to cover it up must be hard to keep track of because 64% of respondents say they stick to a strict cheating schedule in order to keep their whereabouts on the down low. And that’s why Grant says you should be apprehensive if your partner always hangs out with work friends or heads to the gym on Friday nights.

Ways To Give Back On Giving Tuesday
Tuesday, November 27th is Giving Tuesday and it’s basically a day to give back. It was started in 2012 as a response to all the consumerism of the holidays, especially Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The idea is to mark the beginning of the charitable season and to encourage people to give to organizations and charities that are doing good and here are a few ways you can get involved.
- Donate to your favorite nonprofit - Give to a charity that does work in line with your values, whether that’s a group that supports immigrant families or the LGBTQ community. If you’re not sure who to support, check out the #GivingTuesday site for ideas.
- Volunteer your time - If you can spare some time on Tuesday, roll up your sleeves and donate it to organizations that need hands-on help.
- Start your own fundraiser - If you have a Facebook account, let the power of social media help your favorite nonprofit. Just click “Fundraisers” on the left-hand side of the Facebook page under the Explore tab. There you’ll see options to start a fundraiser for #GivingTuesday. This year, Facebook and PayPal will match donations up to a total of $7-million.
- Share your experience on social media - If you can’t give financially, a free way to help is by boosting #GivingTuesday posts on social media. Use the hashtag #GivingTuesday and repost and retweet to show nonprofits some extra love.
- Start a charitable giving habit - It’s important to give back any time you can, not just the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, so if you’re able, sign up to donate once a month or quarterly to support your favorite charities year-round.
