Traditions. It’s something I’ve been talking a lot about on the blog recently. It’s those memories that take me back to happy times as a child and there are so many of them around the holidays. Every Thanksgiving I remember waking up to the smell of my mom making her delicious sausage stuffing and getting the turkey in the oven. I would come out of my room and find her at the stove, cooking away. Then I would plop down in front of the TV and watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is a yearly tradition and something I loved as a kid. Those big floats, the music, the people, and watching my favorite characters floating across the screen in gigantic balloons was so mesmerizing.
Now that I’m the one cooking Thanksgiving dinner my kids wake up to me in the kitchen, cooking my mama’s stuffing and getting the turkey into the oven. They also find me making breakfast like french toast and bacon or warm gooey cinnamon rolls that we enjoy while watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. It’s a great way for us to spend family time together before the chaos of the day begins.
This Thanksgiving, America’s favorite holiday tradition will return to once again kick-off the season with its signature brand of magical entertainment. On Thursday, November 23 rd , the 91st, Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade ® will march down the streets of New York City as the country gathers to celebrate. The unparalleled event is set to enthrall more than 3.5 million spectators lining the streets of Manhattan and more than 50 million viewers on television with a host of giant character balloons, dazzling floats, the nation’s best marching bands and performance groups, celebrities, and the official entrance of the one-and-only Santa Claus.
Join me and tune in at 9 a.m. ET Thanksgiving morning to watch the new opening of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. This new opening will feature an all-star ensemble cast of celebrities from pop culture, stage and TV all singing and dancing together in an epic performance of Dancin’ in The Street! Also, as part of the first hour of festivities Gwen Stefani will perform White Christmas at the Bryant Park ice rink surrounded by fans and skaters.
