8 Thanksgiving Movies

I always love a good festive screening of a movie during the holiday. We started playing Christmas movies over here already, but I want to shift to a few Thanksgiving movies this week! Growing up, we always watched Planes, Trains and Automobiles on Thanksgiving. That evening, we used to put up our Christmas tree and watch Eddie and the Cruisers. Does anyone remember that movie? I am not sure what started that, maybe it was just that my dad wanted to watch it one time and it stuck. It wasn’t Thanksgiving or Christmas-y.

I put a list together of Thanksgiving movies. There is something for everyone on here. I chose Miracle on 34th Street because it does start with the Thanksgiving parade! That is something else I try to catch every year. We always look for the Snoopy float. Do you have a favorite Thanksgiving movie? Do you want the parade?

    I love this – I didn’t even think of Son in Law. My siblings and I watched that movie nonstop growing up! Such a great list!

    I love that you put this out there. I was wondering about some movies for Thanksgiving and only thought of Charlie Brown.

    OH my gosh, Son-in-Law. We used to watch that as kids LOL.
    I do love Miracle on 34th St, the old and the newer version.

    We have very similar tastes and I have seen every single one of these and love them! I’m usually not one to watch movies over and over but some of these I definitely can! Have the sweetest Thanksgiving my love!
