Songs of Food and Gratitude

Kristin has humbly retired as Ordinary Times' friendly neighborhood political whipping girl to focus on culture and gender issues. She lives in a wildlife refuge in rural Washington state with too many children and way too many animals. There's also a blog which most people would very much disapprove of

    What an awesome collection of songs.
    I’m going to enjoy listening to these through the day.

    Most people don’t seem to love Thanksgiving the way I do (…). There’s a decided lack of Thanksgiving movies, a shortage of Thanksgiving television specials, and a downright dearth of Thanksgiving music.

    Well Thanksgiving movies, TV specials, and songs everywhere you turn for a month in advance would sure go a long way toward making me dislike Thanksgiving as much as I dislike Christmas…

    As it is it’s kind of the perfect holiday – short lead up period, fairly realistic expectations, day off work always attached to weekend, eat nice food with family or friends, and the whole thing’s over and done with.Report

      Oh Gosh you’re right – be careful what you wish for. Im’onna end up with turkeys in August and wondering what hath I wrought.

      Thanksgiving, above all else, is attainable for me. Some of the other holidays, if I catch an unlucky break (which I often do) are like these insurmountable feats of heroism for me to pull off for my family. I generally end up feeling like a failure. But Thanksgiving I can almost always knock out of the ballpark.

      Thanks for reading and commenting!Report

    I very nearly forgot the most important part of any Thanksgiving meal. Olives Inebriated arguments about one another’s life choices.
