Top Ten Thanksgiving Movies

by Wendy,

Hey - Thanksgiving is only a week away! Why not find a good movie to watch or share with others?

“Certain things leave you in your life and certain things stay with you.
And that's why we're all interested in movies -
those ones that make you feel, you still think about.
Because it gave you such an emotional response,
it's actually part of your emotional make-up, in a way.”
― Tim Burton, Burton on Burton

Especially if you spend Thanksgiving alone, watch a great movie and let your memories flow... Get that warm feeling inside your heart! Get your belly full of a few good laughs! Movies are good... well, some of them! GRIN!

I found this list online, many sound pretty good! I added Amazon links so you can watch the trailers or read reviews, or even order (rent or buy). Easy way to click and read about each movie to find one for your Holiday. Right?

They are all rated 4.5 to 5 stars (tops) on Amazon too.

AND just so you don't think I'm really getting OLD -- yes, there are two #7's... I found two movies with the same name, both on the list, both rank well too... so I added them both!

Thanksgiving memories
by: Donna Augusta, Mo

As I get older 63 now I am more and more grateful for my blessings. I was able to retire at 62 from a 37 year career that I loved as an RN.

Thanksgiving for me is all about family, friends and the congregating of all to be thankful. We always welcomed all and always had plenty for all to enjoy. Of course as you get older lots of family and friends have passed or moved away. But, it warms my heart to think of those special times.

Each year is different and as an RN I had to be very flexible we didn't always celebrate in the day of but, we would celebrate together at sometime during the season.

I hope everyone enjoys their Thanksgiving and one thing I am grateful for is finding this site and reading all of your thoughts.
