“The Playlist” Gives Thanks Over Thanksgiving Dinner

greg194799 / flickr

When the dinner is served on Thursday, you will gather around the table over a spread that you will be eating for day, while giving thanks for all the good in your life.  This is where “The Playlist” is going this week.

Your dinner will be probably full of turkey, with stuffing, cranberries, mash potatoes, and some pie for dessert maybe, but before eating you give thanks for all the good things in your life.  Bringing this all together musically is not easy, but these songs find their way around the holiday dinner table.

Trust me when I tell you this was not easy to make this work, and as usual some liberties were taken to make The Playlist edible, thankful, reflective, and fun!

Remember to be thankful for all the things you have in life, and remember those less fortunate this year (maybe bring those leftovers to those who deserve a Thanksgiving but are not able to have one this year).

Enjoy this week’s version of The Playlist, and enjoy this holiday season!
