Can you experience Thanksgiving without good music? I do not think so. The music blasting from the speakers always sets the mood, ending up in part karaoke, part meal prep for dinner.

The history of Thanksgiving in the United States dates as far back as 1621 when it was observed by Pilgrims and Puritans who emigrated from England and settled in New England.

Celebrated as a public holiday, Thanksgiving Day is anticipated by many people for various reasons. For some, it’s a time to spend with family, give thanks and enjoy delectable recipes. Others look forward to it because it is yet another day away from the pressures of work and school.

Many people have the tendency to be overly curious at Thanksgiving dinners. If you want to avoid such a situation, just let the music fill the room and conversations naturally die out. Also, families contemplate when to start blurring Christmas carols at home. This is perfect after Thanksgiving, officially activating the Christmas mode.

Here is a short playlist that would set the ‘Thank You’ and ‘Let’s eat mood’ for Thanksgiving.

Sweet Potato Pie – Ray Charles

Do The Mashed Potatoes – James Brown

Family Business – Kanye West

Keeping the family Close – Drake
