The leaves are altering and pumpkin spice is on the cabinets, which may solely imply one factor: It’s virtually Thanksgiving!
Around this time of 12 months, it is exhausting to disregard one in every of the longest ongoing Thanksgiving traditions—the world-famend annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Dating again to 1924, this iconic New York-based parade has at all times saved us on the fringe of our seats, full with varied performers, outlandish floats, meticulous group dances and shock superstar appearances!
Starting out as a Christmas parade, this custom has slowly advanced into the unimaginable occasion that it’s right now, ultimately changing into greater than only a easy parade. Do you bear in mind when the resilient New York City firefighters walked the streets of Manhattan in 2001 after the tragic 9/11 assaults earlier that September? Or what about Ariana Grande‘s uplifting rendition of Wham!‘s “Last Christmas” in 2013?
The annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is a beacon of pleasure and unites Americans with a typical message: What can we be pleased about right now?
