List of the Best Thanksgiving Movies

An Old Fashioned Thanksgiving

This movie is based on a story by Louisa May Alcott, who authored Little Women. If you like historical fiction, heart-warming stories, and East Coast snowy scenery, this one’s for you!

Love at the Thanksgiving Day Parade

I adore this charming romantic comedy. It’s a Hallmark movie, and does air on TV several times throughout November. The main character Emily is the coordinator for the Chicago Thanksgiving Day Parade. She has to contend with Henry, the consultant hired to cut costs for the parade. The characters are very likable, and Emily wears some darling vintage clothing.

Miracle on 34th Street (1994 version)

I really enjoy both versions of this movie, but I grew up watching this one, so it’s extra special to me. It also centers around a Thanksgiving parade, and transpires over a few weeks up until Christmas. But it starts at Thanksgiving, so we watch it in November, and it’s a great way to transition to the full holiday spirit.

You can’t beat the timeless classic nature of this version. And this set comes in both black and white and a color version (and other cool bonus features), so everyone’s happy.
