Thanksgiving doesn’t have to end once dinner is over. Grab a piece of pie, rally up the kids and put on a fun holiday classic.

There are plenty of Thanksgiving themed movies and shows to watch, but here five that are a must watch.

A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving

There is truly no better way to celebrate the holidays than with the Peanuts gang. A classic film for the young and old to enjoy, watch as Snoopy and Charlie Brown prepare a Thanksgiving meal for all of their friends.

How I Met Your Mother

One word: Slapsgiving. In seasons 3, 5 and 9, Thanksgiving becomes a day of getting slapped in the face for Barney Stinson (Neil Patrick Harris). There are plenty of shows that have great Thanksgiving episodes, but this one is legen… (wait for it) …dary.

Miracle on 34th Street

This classic has footage shot from the actual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade back in 1946. Edmund Gwenn, who played Santa Claus in the film, was actually given the task of being the actual Santa Claus during the parade, yet all of the crowd was not aware it was him at the time.


A personal favorite of mine, turn on the Netflix and search “The One With The Thanksgiving Flashbacks.” The group reflects back on past Thanksgiving moments, most memorably the times when both Joey and Monica got their heads stuck in a turkey.

Mr. Bean and the Christmas Turkey

Well speaking of getting turkeys stuck on heads, hello Mr. Bean. Rowan Atkinson gives us one of the most hilarious Thanksgiving scenes while he looks for his misplaced watch in a turkey that has already been stuffed. Nothing says Thanksgiving like a raw bird on your head.
