The Ultimate Thanksgiving Playlist

I used to be a hardcore Thanksgiving purist. No trees, no snow, no Christmas jingles until after Thanksgiving. Then I married a man that loves Christmas so much it literally hurt. And we had kids. My stance on Thanksgiving was outvoted. We put up our tree the weekend after Halloween, it stays up well into January. Christmas carols can be heard blasting from our car in mid-June.
I lost.
But about two years ago, a glimmer of hope emerged when my older two asked why we didn’t have a Thanksgiving playlist.

Why were we just skipping over it? So I told them, we’d just have to create one! Lo and behold, there are a few more than you might imagine. I’m here to share them with you. Our ‘Best of Thanksgiving’ playlist has become one of our favorite things in the month of November! Now, don’t get me wrong, we belt out “Gobble, Gobble” while we eat dinner in a room lit up by our Christmas tree, but this little nod of gratitude is everything you need to enjoy Thanksgiving this year.
