American Thanksgiving represents a cornucopia of traditional activities and fare, all centered around the celebration of giving thanks for our bountiful resources. Turkeys, falling leaves, pumpkin pie, NFL football, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, and crazy Uncle Joe are all a part of the seasonal festivities. Get in the fall holiday spirit with a collection of seven screensavers designed for the Thanksgiving season.

Turkey Thanksgiving screensaver

What could be cuter than turkeys dressed up like Pilgrims and Native Americans? Well, how about turkeys dressed up like Pilgrims and Native Americans who are celebrating the first Thanksgiving? The first turkey Pilgrims set the table and bring the cranberry sauce, the Native Americans supply maize and bread, and the last Pilgrim group completes the feast with muffins and mashed potatoes.

Thanksgiving 3D Screensaver

Astro Gemini Software's Harvest Time Farms is a place that exemplifies the many themes and traditions of the Thanksgiving holiday. At this imaginary, animated farm, plump turkeys waddle around the barn, a collection of fall vegetables and fruits sits in a wheelbarrow, and the entire rural scene resonates with the spirit of the season.

Autumn Treasures screensaver

Thanksgiving dinner is dominated by the fruits of the fall harvest, and this free screensaver pays homage to those delicious treats with a slide show of images embellished with Thanksgiving messages. Images include turkey dinner, pumpkin pie, a bowl full of apples, and a bouquet of fall roses.

Thanksgiving Forest screensaver

Summer gives way to fall quickly, as this animated free screensaver can attest.

With their slanted Pilgram hats and funny protest signs with phrases like "Vegans Rule," "Eat Crow," and "Beef! It's What's For Thanksgiving," these fine-feathered friends are likely to charm.

The Dallas Cowboys ScreenServer
