Overcome The Insanity
Planes, Trains and Automoblies- is a classic thanksgiving movie. Its a tradition to watch it ever thanksgiving or around thanksgiving. Its also a tradition to watch "Addams Family Values", ever thanksgiving or around thanksgiving. Anyways this movie is excellent and the chemistry between Steve Martin and John Candy is excellent.

The plot: Easily excitable Neal Page (Steve Martin) is somewhat of a control freak. Trying to get home to Chicago to spend Thanksgiving with his wife (Laila Robins) and kids, his flight is rerouted to a distant city in Kansas because of a freak snowstorm, and his sanity begins to fray. Worse yet, he is forced to bunk up with talkative Del Griffith (John Candy), whom he finds extremely annoying. Together they must overcome the insanity of holiday travel to reach their intended destination.

Their is a great documentary on youtube, about this movie. How oringally it was surpost to be 3 hours long and their cut a hour to be 2hrs than finally cut 30 more minutes to be 1h 30mins. So half of the oringal movie got cut. So how than this movie is so perfect than? Well its because its funny, dramatic, and above all excellent. I will post the video.

Its a excellent thanksgiving film.

Heres the video:

Although I have never celebrated Guy Fawkes Night (and you have never celebrated Thanksgiving), I hope all my British friends have a great holiday and it is not too cold to behold some fireworks!

We got lucky with the weather in Edinburgh, it was torrential rain all day yesterday, but had brightened up today. We're taking the kids to the local fireworks display (and we even managed to remember to buy sparklers this year!).
And we have started to celebrate Thanksgiving, in a way - we have embraced the nonsense shopping-fights on the morning after!

The Berenstain Bears Thanksgiving Blessing is a book for all children. The book is a must-have on your bookshelves if you are a Berenstain Bears fan. This book helps teach children about Thanksgiving and being thankful for the blessing that you have.

This book teaches Mama and Papa as they ride through the woods to their grans and gramps place for Thanksgiving dinner. They teach about how the native Bears and pilgrims shared and started the whole Thanksgiving feast and what it means to be thankful for all the blessings you have.

The blessing is quite a few things we have somewhat forgotten we came to have. Some of the blessings are Family and Friends, Faith, and religion. A few others. The cubs do mention a song that is a favorite of mine. The song is “Over the river and Through the woods.”

What will your child or children learn about the history of holidays and celebrations? This book teaches a bit about it. What is your child or children learning to be Thankful for during the season? Are we teaching that children should be thankful for the blessing that they have? The many blessings we have in life have continued told in this book.

This book is considerably shorter than the others as it is set over thanksgiving break so it is only a couple of days. However it is still a great book and it is lovely to see Keatyn away from away from school.

Woo-Ah!!!
When you look up thansgiving movies, Scent of a Women comes up. Yes even though it takes over thanksgiving break, it is far from a thanksgiving movie. Its depressing, sad, motived, caring and heartwarming. Its a excellent movie, but man its very depressing and sad. Both Al Pacino and Chris O'Donnell are excellent.

The plot: Frank is a retired Lt. Col. in the US army. He's blind and impossible to get along with. Charlie is at school and is looking forward to going to college. To help pay for a trip home for Christmas, he agrees to look after Frank over Thanksgiving. Frank's niece says this will be easy money, but she didn't reckon on Frank spending his Thanksgiving in New York.

Pacino painstakingly researched his part in Scent of a Woman. To understand what it feels like to be blind, he met with clients of New York's Associated Blind, being particularly interested in seeing from those who had lost their sight due to trauma. Clients traced the entire progression for him—from the moment they knew they would never see again to the depression and through to acceptance and adjustment. The Lighthouse, also in New York, schooled him in techniques a blind person might use to find a chair and seat themselves, pour liquid from a bottle and light a cigar.

Its a excellent movie, but its very depressing and sad at moments. So get ready to cry at those moments.
