Thanksgiving in the 1970s: The Photos

Thanksgiving is the best holiday. It’s all about eating and drinking and spending time with people you value. (This assumes, of course, that your table isn’t a minefield of political conversation; if that’s the case, Thanksgiving is the worst holiday.) Thanksgiving in the 1970s, however, looked even more carefree and festive than it does today. Boozier, too. Take a look through these 30 images of celebrities and regular folks alike celebrating the holiday in the ’70s.

This article courtesy of Esquire is from a few years ago, but it gives a taste of what Thanksgiving would have been like for Penelope Drake and friends, minus the green bean casserole, congeal salad, and other regrettable food choices. Happy Thanksgiving!
