    Sure, eating and family togetherness are wonderful things. But, there's more to Thanksgiving than that. After all, what former high school misfit doesn't relish the thought of arriving back in her podunk hometown, looking effortlessly, big-city cool in front of that former head cheerleader who never quite made it out of her low-rise days?

    Ahead, read our complete guide to not letting the hometown haters get you down — and consider it your (mental) armor for when you get that side-eye as you walk into your local dive bar in your crop top and culottes.
