This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Montclair chapter.

It’s Thanksgiving time yet again. A time in the U.S. when you gather with loved ones, enjoy a feast and celebrate together. A tradition for many during this American holiday is watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, the Turkey Day Game or even the National Dog Show. So while waiting for the Turkey to cook and the game to start, here is a list of two shows’ iconic Thanksgiving episodes to watch.

Bob’s Burgers

If you’re looking for a show to watch with your family, preferably with older kids, look no further than Bob’s Burgers. Watch as the Belcher Family gets into crazy situations on Bob’s favorite holiday. From escaping a pack of wild birds to rescuing a turkey from a slaughterhouse, this little burger-making-family will sure be an entertaining watch.
