Thanksgiving Week has officially kicked off on Allison’s Written Words…exactly one month until the next holiday.
One at a time, though!
One could say I’ve been covering Thanksgiving all month long on Allison’s Written Words, but in actuality, I was just keeping in theme. This week is actually the week I throw my all into the holiday itself.
When I was trying to find a “Thanksgiving” song for today’s music choice, I had to go back and check last year’s article, and sure enough, I used the song I thought was “Ooooh! Perfect!”, but I’m undeterred in my efforts to find another perfect Thanksgiving song.
I found today’s song in a Thanksgiving playlist on YouTube, which I’m sure is one of those things I should be grateful for this Thanksgiving. It was also the same playlist that had the “Autumn Leaves” song from a few weeks ago.
Today’s song is simply titled “Thanksgiving Song,” and is sung (as well as composed) by Mary Chapin Carpenter, released in 2008 from her album Come Darkness, Come Light: Twelve Songs Of Christmas. This album reached #7 on the Billboard Top Holiday Albums chart, #30 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums, and #155 on the Billboard Hot 200. Carpenter sings a song of gratefulness for what we have, and keeps it short and sweet as she does.
In a holiday season where it is easy to forget what we are grateful for, and how we should always be grateful beyond the amount of days in November leading up to Thanksgiving, this song gives the perfect sentiment of that.
Because of that, I’m going to keep it short and sweet, and let the music close this one out.
Thanksgiving Week continues tomorrow at Allison’s Written Words! Have a great Monday, and enjoy the music!
