Part 1: Basic Knowledge about Thanksgiving

Firstly, let’s get a brief understanding about Thanksgiving and its celebration ways.

What is Thanksgiving Day?

Thanksgiving Day is a national holiday celebrated in Canada and the United States. It was originally celebrated as a day of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year. Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday of October in Canada and on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States. Several other places around the world observe similar celebrations. Although Thanksgiving has historical roots in religious and cultural traditions, it has long been celebrated in a secular manner as well.

How to celebrate Thanksgiving Day?

The Thanksgiving holiday revolves around food, which often includes a variety of traditional items. Dinner typically includes a turkey, along with mashed potatoes, stuffing and gravy. This meal concludes with the breaking of a wishbone and making a wish. Sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce and cornbread often accompany the meal. Desserts, primarily apple, pumpkin, pecan and sweet potato pies, follow decadent dinners. Families abstaining from meat and vegetarians substitute traditional meats with items, such as tofu, salads and other fruits and vegetables. While families dine privately, Thanksgiving contains public ceremonies and traditions, too. After finishing the meal, family and friends can gather around to enjoy Thanksgiving movies, especially Thanksgiving Blu-ray movies. If you are interested in Thanksgiving comedy movies, click here to catch a glimpse.

Part 4: 5 Best Thanksgiving Movies in Blu-ray

Here we would like to recommend you some recent movies released on Blu-ray for the Thanksgiving holiday. You could now get these Thanksgiving Blu-ray movie discs from Amazon or other online/local stores.

Avengers: Endgame

After the devastating events of Avengers: Infinity War (2018), the universe is in ruins. With the help of remaining allies, the Avengers assemble once more in order to reverse Thanos’ actions and restore balance to the universe. The DVD and Blu-ray versions of Avengers: Endgame has been available since this August. You could get this Marvel Studios big blaster to enrich your Thanksgiving movie collection.

The Art of Self-Defense

Black comedies with an additive of social commentary are a special breed. When a film can elicit laughter with a recognition of the societal mores in need of change in equal measure therein lies a recipe for success. But it all depends on the final execution. “The Art of Self-Defense” is just such a movie. Taking direct aim at toxic masculinity, this is a very earnest and specific bit of cinema, yet one that absolutely quashes expectations. Not only does the film have a lot to say, but it also parses its analysis in an incredibly unique manner. Blisteringly funny and pitch black in its critique, this is one of the best works of 2019 so far, bar none. From start to finish, it’s entirely riveting.

Planes, Trains And Automobiles

After a run of era-defining high school movies, iconic ’80s director John Hughes graduated to adult-focused stories with the quintessential Thanksgiving comedy. Steve Martin plays an uptight advertising exec battling the elements to get back home to his family in Chicago for Thanksgiving, while the late John Candy is the slobby, relentlessly chatty salesman who tags along. The title neatly sums up the trials and tribulations of their epic journey, but the film’s mostly about the verbal sparring between one of the comedy cinema’s great double acts.

Home for the Holidays

A bedraggled and depressed Holly Hunter makes the long trek home for Thanksgiving in the seasonal comedy Home for the Holidays. It’s funny, it’s sad, it’s dysfunctional. Coming home to the holidays isn’t always fun, but Hunter makes it look like a living nightmare with help from a great cast that includes Robert Downey Jr., Claire Danes and Anne Bancroft.

You’ve Got Mail

A relic from a time when email was new and exciting and contactless payments were just a dream… As legendary rom-com writer/director Nora Ephron reunites her Sleepless In Seattle stars Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan for a spot of electronic romance, a pivotal moment in the couple’s relationship takes place in a supermarket on Thanksgiving. She’s the bookseller holding up an increasingly irate cash-only line because she’s only got a dollar; he’s the rival bookseller who saves the day by sweet-talking the cashier; the rest of us think about all the better ways they could be spending their Thanksgivings…
