The best way to digest your Thanksgiving meal

Posted on 17 Nov 2011

People always talk about being exhausted after the holidays, but I'd like to suggest that it's almost more likely to be exhausted BEFORE the holidays even start--all the preparation, cooking, cleaning, shopping, dealing with family.

So that's why you need to take some time to yourself to just relax and watch some great programs on AETN beginning the night before Turkey Day.

"In Performance at the White House: Country Music" - Wednesday, Nov. 23, at 7 p.m.

This program, hosted by President and Mrs. Obama, celebrates a uniquely American musical idiom--country music--music of the heart and of the heartland. The evening's performance will be headlined by Dierks Bentley, Alison Krauss, Kris Kristofferson, Lyle Lovette, James Taylor and The Band Perry and many more.


"Curious George" Holiday Spectacular - Thursday, Nov. 24, at 11 a.m.

Your favorite curious monkey will delight children Thanksgiving day beginning with the premiere of "Curious George: The Movie" followed by "Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey" and "Curious George: A Very Monkey Christmas."


"Renaissance Christmas" - Thursday, Nov. 24, at 7 p.m.

Join Chicago's celebrated Music of the Baroque Chorus and Brass ensemble as they celebrate the soaring sounds of the holiday season.
