The Best Movies to Watch This Thanksgiving


Thanksgiving is one of the few times in the year when people get to meet their families and appreciate the bond they share with them. The event is all about great food, amusing conversations, and a comfy time at home. Just like yams and turkey are some of the stapes of a Thanksgiving meal, movies play a huge role in furthering your family bonds and just generally having a relaxing time with your loved ones.

After the food and desserts are done with and you have probably consumed more food than you had eaten all year, it is only fair to crash on the couch, curl up with the comfiest duvet and enjoy a good movie. The greatest part is that you have a huge list of thanksgiving movies to choose from.

1.A Family Thanksgiving

One of the great is A Family Thanksgiving. You can watch it with kids as the plot revolves around a successful corporate lawyer who is living a posh life in New York City. She is quite content with the star-studded routine until a mysterious person comes into her life to show her an alternate reality where she would have ended up if she had made slightly skewed choices. Also, it's a Hallmark thanksgiving movie available on YouTube so you can easily access it.


2.Home Alone

This is one of the Holiday classics. The fall season isn’t complete without all three movies of this set being watched. It is made for all ages and whether it is your parents or your kids, you are bound to enjoy the experience with them. We don’t think this movie even needs an introduction but if you have been living under a rock, it is about a kid who is left alone at home by his parents and has to deal with the kidnappers.



Children as well as adults are obsessed with Roald Dahl. No one does motivation mixed with humor better than him and this is why he is insanely popular among households.

An exclusive suggestion for the adults, this movie is for a great family time when you have said good night to the kids.
