We love Christmas. We even decorate early for Christmas because it sparks joy. But we still respect the bird, meaning, Thanksgiving. Oh yeah… that holiday of gratitude and Pilgrims sitting down with Native Americans to break wishbones and commune with family BEFORE Christmas.
With that being said, we’re so glad Ben Rector dropped a Thanksgiving song on us. Because the last one we remember is that song from Adam Sandler.
Ben said on his YouTube page: “When I started putting together the Christmas album, I realized I hadn't ever heard a Thanksgiving song. I feel like everyone has an emotional connection and a lot of memories around Thanksgiving, just like they do Christmas, so I did my best to write a song that honored that. I hope this song captures the magic and nostalgia that we all look forward to at Thanksgiving. I also secretly hope that this becomes the official theme song for Thanksgiving (this is both based on that I think the song is a very good Thanksgiving song and also that it is the only Thanksgiving song).”
We feel you, Ben. Now, pass the potatoes…
