What We Talk About When We Talk About Thanksgiving


When we talk about the impending Thanksgiving holiday at Flavorpill HQ, we’re generally not discussing the best way to cook a bird. (That might be partially due to the fact that half of our editorial team is vegetarian.) What we do tend to debate are the best holiday-related films and TV episodes. After the jump we’ve rounded up clips from 10 Turkey Day classics — from Adam Sandler’s performance of “The Thanksgiving Song” to South Park’s Helen Keller! The Musical. Enjoy, and add to our list in the comments.
