My daughter, whose first and middle names are Wednesday and Addams (yes, for real), FINALLY let me do this. I’ve been begging for like, two years. Bonus: I sent her to church with her grandparents like this.

And it turns out, she’s pretty good at it!

So, let me use this post for good just a second. A lot of people felt left out when we did the #UtterlyAlone watch-a-long party for Halloween, because their time zone made it impossible to join. Well, to celebrate American Thanksgiving, I thought, why not do another watch-a-long. What’s a good Thanksgiving movie?

That’s right. On the day after Thanksgiving, Black Friday, November 29th, at 3 p.m. EST, we’ll be watching Addams Family Values. Because if it wasn’t obvious from the rest of the content in this post, I really, really love The Addams Family and there is like, a three minute Thanksgiving sequence in this one, so that means it counts.

So, at 3 p.m., EST, November 29th, start your DVD or whatever (it is not on Netflix streaming, I recommend renting from Amazon Video or just streaming if you’re a Prime member) and join your fellow Troutlanders on the hashtag #EatMe. The Beetlejuice one was awesome, so this should also be a good time!

    Your daughter is adorable!

    Also, the moth! I would be telling that story to everyone…forever. Here’s my traumatizing bug story. I once was walking along under some trees when I saw something fall towards my face. I swatted but didn’t get it and it felt like something was in my eye so I went into the nearest Starbucks (cuz I live in a city where there is one on every other block) and into their loo and their was a woodbug happily hanging out on my eyeball, just resting along the rim of my lower lid. Holy F*ck it was the grossest thing ever! Until I read your moth story.

  7. Wellllll, if I didn’t think I loved you before, I definitely do now. Not only did you name your (adorable) child Wednesday, which has been my personal life goal since like, the age of 10, you also share my traditional Thanksgiving movie. 😛

  8. Your daughter is ridiculously cute.

    I have bought this movie on DVD twice and it keeps walking off, never to be found again. At this point i think I’m justified downloading it from some bay owned by pirates.

    Have you see The Madame’s Family? It, uh, stars Ron Jeremy as Uncle Fester….
