What to Watch on Thanksgiving

Sharing is caring!

Though we mostly associate Thanksgiving with family and food, there’s another aspect of Thanksgiving that’s become just as much a part of my traditions. And that would be television. Oh yes. For example, I start my day by watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade. Then I wait (sometimes patiently) for football to start. But surely there are other options, right? What about the non-football fans or those who don’t like parades? Or if you’re a sports junkie or a parade junkie, wouldn’t you like to know what channel to tune into? I did a little digging and I’ve come up with a list of what to watch on Thanksgiving. Hopefully this gives you a helping hand.
