Thanksgiving is a time for gathering around the table, cooking for hours on end in the kitchen, and getting ready for the main event: eating. What the holiday that inspires an attitude of gratitude isn’t quite as known for is cracking jokes. But there is so much that’s funny (and punny) on Thanksgiving, and with an audience filled with friends and family right there to share some silly stories with, why wouldn’t you break out some Thanksgiving jokes? Get ready to giggle until you waddle, because you’ll gobble these Thanksgiving jokes for kids right up.
But when is a good time to tell a Thanksgiving joke? Really, anytime. It might be while you’re waiting for the little pop-up timer on the turkey to, well, pop up. It could be after the dishes are cleared and everyone is waiting for some pumpkin pie to wash it all down. Or it might be even when everyone’s on the couch in a food coma. Truly, any time is a good time for Thanksgiving jokes that are all about that baste.
