Nowadays, Thanksgiving seems to be all about how much food you can eat while waiting around for Black Friday.
Well, after you stuff your face with turkey, chicken and/or beef with rice, mac & cheese, sweet potatoes, collard greens, and more, and while you’re lying around with your pants unbuttoned or your feet up, make sure you give thanks for your loved ones and more.
If you need inspiration to carry out your “thank yous” then you’ve come to the right place. We’ve put together a terrific playlist that will make you feel, well, thankful, making it easier for you to transfer that energy to your loved ones.
Let’s eat, sleep, and most importantly, be thankful this year. Happy Thanksgiving!
BTW… If you feel like getting up and shaking your tail feather a little… We will also help you burn some of those calories you just stuffed down your throat :-).
