These Thanksgiving movies will give you all the feels. Whether you're visiting family or hosting the big feast, these holiday movies will be a great addition

Remember those Thanksgivings with family? Grandma prepared a big feast that she began in the early hours of the morning for her extended family to enjoy in the early afternoon.

The guys ate dinner in the living room while watching the football game.

The ladies ate in the kitchen and catch up on everything that had happened during the year.

We all love the Thanksgiving holiday. No work on Thanksgiving and an extra day off for Black Friday.

Friday officially kicks off the Christmas shopping season.

Before we do that, we can gather around the living room and find a good family favorite to watch.

Although there are many classic Thanksgiving movies, there aren’t many options available on Netflix.

There are a few Thanksgiving movies on this list of Christmas movies on Amazon Prime.

Dark comedies about the holiday provide cheer-weary viewers with movies options to help balance the heart-warming and generally predictable fare that is available during the period between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

By the way, we start listening to Christmas music often before Thanksgiving. I enjoy the season so much that I want to get a full 30 days’ worth of enjoyment.


Get ahead on your holiday shopping:
