Kids still watch that? I haven’t seen it in years.

My 19 year old watched it too! It’s part of the tradition of the Holiday!!

I went to the parade three (?) years ago when I lived in New York. We figured we had to go at least once (it was either Thanksgiving parade or New Years Even in Times Square, and there was NO way I was participating in THAT particular brand of craziness). It rained. I lived on the wrong (= other) side of Manhattan. We had to leave super early to get a good spot. We decided to walk across the park. It was cold. My sister didn’t have a rain coat. People pushed a lot. Stupid people brought their pets, that then proceeded to nearly get trampled (poor little dogs). Stupid people brought their non-folding strollers, which proceeded to piss other people off. People nearly got their eyes poked out by other people’s umbrellas. There was no color commentary (except by us).
Much more fun to watch on TV.

Hey, what’s so goofy about that? It ain’t Xmas till the big guy comes in at the end of the parade.
I watch it. Grew up on Long Island. My kids think I’m weird when I get weepy at the Rockettes.

Me too! I was a High School Percussion Section Band Geek. It was so NOT COOL in 1972. I love parades and marching bands and floats and balloons.

We? Tivo’d it. Yep. Right now the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is hogging up my tivo. Stuff is being deleted as I type this…but, because Big knows how to work the tivo now, we get stuff like this…and also? 8 hours of college basketball. Yippee. Oh? My Desperate Housewives? Deleted. Thanks.
