Thanksgiving is always a joyous time of year to gather with family and friends and give thanks. Some celebrities gave thanks through charity-work, like model Melyssa Ford who served food in Atlanta with Hosea Williams Feed the Hungry and Homeless at Turner Field, while others, like R. Kelly, hosted a Thanksgiving dinner in Washington D.C. for 200 U.S. troops.

For the celebs who didn’t hit the charity-campaign, what were they doing for the holidays? VIBE scoured Twitter to find out.
