NaBloPoMo DAY 27:
It’s Thanksgiving and I’m still posting!
For me, nothing evokes the holiday like the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Growing up, watching the parade, sometimes in person, was a staple in my family. It’s a tradition I’ve kept all these years, though these days I’ve been watching it most years on TV.
I can’t imagine celebrating without it. The floats, the high school bands, the giant balloons, and the Broadway shows’ dance numbers–along with my personal favorite–the fabulous Rockettes, all guarantee to delight the child in all of us.
I remember waiting with baited breath for the grand finale, the last float featuring none other than Jolly Old St. Nick. His arrival has come to symbolize the official start of the holiday season.
So, from my home to yours, wishing you and your loved ones a very Happy Thanksgiving, and a joyous holiday season.
