• On Good Things Utah Hour 2 this morning – Good grief, we haven’t even finished eating our Halloween candy yet and it’s almost time to thaw the turkey! That’s OK because we love Thanksgiving and are grateful for all the blessings that come with it, including classic movies like “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving.” The Charles Schultz special, which first aired on Nov. 20, 1973, is a sweet reminder that even when things don’t go as planned, friends and family are what make Thanksgiving special. If you’re hoping to catch the show as part of your Thanksgiving festivities, then you’re in luck because we’ve got all the details on how and where to watch “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” this year, along with a few facts about the holiday program. Although PBS had rights to air the special in 2020 and 2021, the special will stream exclusively on Apple TV+ in 2022. So, if you’re hoping to find Charlie and friends on other streaming services like Amazon, YouTube, Hulu, Netflix or Disney+, then you’re out of luck.
  • Plus, Thanksgiving is the holiday that can make or break a family. It’s the time that everyone shows up for a festive dinner together and dysfunction and buried issues bubble to the surface. For one Reddit user, those cracks are beginning to show before the holiday even rolls around. She took to Reddit’s AITA (Am I the A–hole) subreddit to voice her frustrations and see if she was wrong for refusing her in-laws’ strange request. Her in-laws wanted her to sleep on the floor on Thanksgiving — but she’s pregnant. She starts with some background, telling readers that she and her husband have been together for five years. At the time of the incident, she was five months pregnant. As part of their family tradition, they travel two-and-a-half hours to his aunt’s house for Thanksgiving. The poster clarifies that her own family does not live in the United States, so they see them during Christmas. Her husband’s aunt only has two bedrooms and a basement in her home, hardly enough room for a big family. So, everyone under 40 sleeps in the basement or finds a spot on the floor.
  • And on November 14, pickle enthusiasts everywhere have reason to celebrate, and this year, they can light a candle in honor of their favorite vinegar-soaked treat. Pickle brand Vlasic has teamed up with home fragrances company Candier by Ryan Porter to give the pickle people what they want: a candle that looks and smells like a real jar of pickles. Now you may be thinking, how is a candle like this made? Well, according to Krysten Kauder, the founder of Candier by Ryan Porter, everything had to be done by hand, including the placement of the faux pickles and pouring of the wax. You can grab your own pickle-inspired candle for $29. Candles will be sold in limited quantities beginning on National Pickle Day at shopryanporter.com.
  • At the end of the show – Marriage is full of highs, lows and a whole bunch of ordinary moments in between. And somehow the spouses of Twitter continue to find humor in the minutiae of married life ― and sum it up perfectly in no more than 280 characters. We are sharing a few with you this morning:
  • “Congratulations to my wife on the purchase of her one millionth candle.”
  • “Establish dominance in your marriage by watching all 7 seasons of Gilmore Girls under your husband’s Netflix profile.” We hope you tune in as we laugh and share these Hot Topics and so much more this morning on the 2nd Hour of GTU!
