Holiday movies are one of my favorite things. You get all curled up next to the fire with your family, a nice cup of hot cocoa and a good holiday movie to set the mood. While Thanksgiving movies aren't as popular as Christmas movies, there are still quite a few famous Thanksgiving movies that simply make Thanksgiving, Thanksgiving. I googled famous Thanksgiving movies and the top three to show up were Planes, Trains, & Automobiles, Home for the Holidays, and Charlie Brown's Thanksgiving. I also asked my family what movies they thought of when I said Thanksgiving movies, and they said the exact same ones. So while there are not as many major Thanksgiving movies as there are Christmas, I feel that Thanksgiving movies are just as important.
Thanksgiving is a time of tradition in America. Families come together in harmony and have a big dinner and are just thankful for a lot of things. But a lot of Americans have brought in a tradition that is truly American, and that is watchING football during Thanksgiving. Two NFL franchises host a yearly turkey day game. Dallas Cowboys has been hosting since 1966 and only missed two games in that span. Another franchise that hosts a yearly turkey day game is the Detriot Lions, and they hosted their first game in 1935. This year for the first time in franchise history the Washington Redskins will host the New York Giants. This year’s matchups include Vikings @ Lions, Chargers @ Cowboys, and New York Giants @ Redskins.
College Football NCAA
On 11/23 the Ole Miss Rebels go to the Mississippi Bulldogs’ house to play on Thanksgiving day. This is the only college football game being played on Thanksgiving, but five other teams play the day after and then all other teams play on Saturday. So grab some leftovers from Thanksgiving dinner and watch some football!
Following the Thanksgiving holiday is the wonderful, worldwide trend of Black Friday shopping. After being thankful for everything we have, it’s time to suit up and go out to battle for some once-a-year good deals. To ensure that you stay safe, and get what you’re after, here is a the perfect guide to Black Friday:
Police strength riot shield (purchasable on Amazon for only $99.99)
Add a riot helmet for $22.57 for extra protection (free shipping!)
C O F F E E
Is most effective when being catapulted at tired and ruthless shoppers
Has endless uses
Can be used as a blanket when you feel the need for a power nap or as a harmless weapon (if you avoid giving papercuts)
Sometimes, people even sleep outside the stores. If you are one of these people, this is necessary
Boop people on the head if they’re getting crabby. You came to shop, not to deal with Debbie Downers
You’re not you when you’re hungry, Snickers satisfies
Will help you avoid punching that five year old kid over some Legos this year
While picking up deals avoid picking up the flu
So many people have touched that door handle…
Use this every five minutes or so. Germs are in the air. Don’t get sick for the holidays
Water (stay hydrated it’s important)
CAUTION WET FLOOR
Make a slipping hazard in the middle of the store. You want the deal, you get the deal, not them
Empty water bottles
The lines for the bathroom are so, so long...
Backup may be needed.
You never know what it will take to tackle a lady when she takes the pair of fuzzy socks you wanted
Will tackle the sweet old lady for you
And for the more passive people:
Just stay home
While people are rioting in the stores and streets, you will be at home, safe in bed
Cyber Monday is always an option. Your battle can be then. Safe, online, away from actual people
All jokes aside, it is very important to stay safe this Black Friday. We hope everyone has a safe and pleasant holiday break. Happy Thanksgiving!!
Everyone has a favorite part about Thanksgiving. I think most people's favorite part of Thanksgiving is eating a good meal. I have two favorite parts of Thanksgiving. One of my favorite Thanksgiving activities is eating pineapple ham that my aunt makes. My second favorite thing about Thanksgiving is spending time with my family. Most everyone who was asked said they love spending time with family on Thanksgiving day. They also enjoy a good cooked meal.
