Thanksgiving Clips

Lots of people in my RSS feed and in my Facebook timeline are posting reasons they are thankful. I have a lot to be thankful for but I would rather share some of the music/movie/television clips that help put my in the thankful mood:

Pardoning a Turkey on The West Wing:

Bing Crosby in Holiday Inn: This scene in the movie causes us to reflect on how society has changed since the film was created in 1942 (and African American actors/actresses could only be cast in subservient roles).  (The song starts at the 2 minute mark)

And for a more modern take: How I Met Your Mother’s Slapsgiving (before the show started to jump the shark).

Finally, Christmas Vacation may be a movie for a different holiday, but one year my vegetarian mother decided to volunteer to make the turkey for our Thanksgiving dinner of probably around 12-15 people. It turned out just like this so this scene is a must-watch in November for me.

What do you like to watch to get you in the Thanksgiving mood?
