(I’m Gonna Eat) On Thanksgiving Day

Laurie BerknerSo, whatcha doing on Thursday? Getting together with family? Going to watch a little football, or run around the yard in your own impromptu game? Remember to give thanks too!

Oh, and yes, don’t forget to do a lot of what Laurie Berkner sings about in her little musical ode to Thanksgiving: Eat.

(I’m Gonna Eat) On Thanksgiving Day is a very simple—and very catchy—tune by my son’s all-time-favorite singer, Laurie Berkner. In his world, this is an oldie, having been released way back in ’04. Sung a cappella and in a round, you can almost imagine the Pilgrims humming the tune as they got things together all those years ago.
We’ll have it on heavy rotation this week. I hope that hearing her sing happily about eating “Turkey with stuffing and cranberries/
Sweet potatoes and corn and peas
” will entice my picky eater to try something besides the rolls. –Christina

    Thanksgiving is one of the few days of the year, I say the heck with it and eat until it hurts.
