Thanksgiving Movies the Whole Family Will Enjoy

Thanksgiving is a time for family to GATHER. We GATHER in the kitchen to prepare a Thanksgiving feast. We GATHER around the table, to give thanks for the food, that is prepared before us. We GATHER around the living room to allow the tryptophan to kick in. We GATHER back in the kitchen to make leftover turkey sandwiches. We GATHER, amiright?! At the end of a long day of spending time with the friends and family that we love, why not end your day with one final GATHER?

I've gathered a handful of movies [see what I did there?], that are a perfect way to end the day. Whether you have toddlers, tweens, teens, or are a family of all adults, there's a movie listed that you can ALL enjoy. Grab a great big bowl of popcorn, a comfy throw blanket, your loved ones, and settle in for a quiet evening at home.

Miracle on 34th Street - This classic film will get you in the holiday spirit. Since the opening scene is at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade, it is a great movie for Thanksgiving!

Planes, Trains and Automobiles - This is a movie, admittedly, I've never seen. But, with Steven Martin and the late John Candy as the two main characters, it must be a good one. 

Grumpy Old Men - This movie reminds me of my grandpa; not because he was a grumpy old man, but because he loved this movie. It's important to remember family members that are no longer with us. Bonus: This movie will make you laugh, too. 

Curly Sue - There's nothing quite like a movie to pull on your heartstrings during the holidays. I had forgotten about this gem. Curly Sue will have you laughing and crying. It might even inspire you to help a family in need. Maybe. Hopefully. 

Know what I'd really love to do this Thanksgiving? I'd love to take my family to see Disney's new MOANA. [I won't go ON Thanksgiving, because I don't think anyone, other than emergency personnel, should be working on a family holiday. But, on Friday...GAME ON. Or, is it MOVIE ON?!] Have you seen Moana yet? I'd love to hear your thoughts. Leave me a comment telling me what you thought.

What movie did I forget? Is there a family favorite, that you'd be willing to share with me? Let me know, in the comments, which movie I should GATHER my family to watch this Thanksgiving!
