The Macy's Day Parade. I just love seeing all of the large colorful floats, the people having a joyous time, the bands from different places and celebrity performances.
I know I haven't wrote in like a million years...but I am bored & can't sleep. Even though Thanksgiving was a few weeks ago my answer is:
FAMILY. FOOD. FOOTBALL. <3
thanksgiving is super american. and i am american. therefore i celebrate.
football is super american. and consequently has a season that continues despite the thanksgiving weekend festivities. therefore football gets watched on thanksgiving.
thus making football a small but vital part that helps define 'thanksgiving festivities.'
it is not my favorite, nor is it my least favorite.
it just is.
and it works.
and i do not question any of it.
A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving. Of course!!!!! I have been watching it since I was a baby. It's a tradition for me. And if I do have children, they will definitely be raised on Charlie Brown!!
Before joining my family for traditional festivities, I usually watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on television.
I was a long-standing member in marching bands while in school, both high school and college. Heck, I even joined the band sorority and, later through an associative position, fraternity. Long story, but I digress.
I LOVE BAND. Period.
I love watching and reminiscing over being in parades during my marching days, and this year my high school band from Middletown, KY was in the Macy's parade. So I was doubly pleased as punch to see them perform.
Skip the football games, unless there's a half-time show involved, for Thanksgiving. No movies for me, thank you very much. Just give me the parade and I'm content.
I definitely enjoy watching the MACY'S Thanksgiving parade, for sure.
Normally, that's the start of my holiday watch list.
Well first you start with Macy's Thanksgiving Parade, and that ain't over until noon and then it is NFL time. First the Lions and then Dallas at four. And then after that I most likely watch Miracle on 34th Street. We have done that pretty much my whole life. Well I love them to do them all, because it is a family thing we do. We use to do it with my grandfather and now I do it with my children, it is a nice family tradition.
А я и не отмечаю... Я это за праздник даже не считаю и вспоминаю о нем только тогда, когда в школе по английскому проходим всех этих индеек и Дней Благодарения... )
