Thanksgiving Mood

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. The people, the food, the fact that it marks the beginning of the traditional Holiday Season are just a few of my favorite things about Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, there are not very many specific songs about the holiday; however, here is a list of songs that seem to fit the occasion very well. Some picks may seem a little too on the nose, however, it is truly essential that we remember the essence of what Thanksgiving is supposed to be about this year. For America, 2016 has been a tumultuous, divisive year. The division lies not just in the country but also even among family and friends. I believe it is possible, and very important for us to put the differences aside, even if just for 24 hours. For this day, remember what you are thankful for, and love about the people in your life. It is important to always remember how blessed we are to have what we have, so that we never take it for granted, and we may then reach out to those in need; let’s all take care of each other. I hope these songs cause you to be thankful for both your life and the people around you (and there is even a song to ring in Christmas at the end). Happy Thanksgiving!
