In New York on Thanksgiving Day, there is a huge crowd of people waiting outside Macy’s. Every year on the eve of Thanksgiving, there is a parade held there since 1924. People love to see this parade, its colorful floats, vibrantly colored costume clad participants and the larger than life balloons. It is accompanied by live music and band.
It is a tradition carried on from the halcyondays of past when there was little thought given to concerns like security or terror threats.
This year there was a lot of excitement. The huge balloon of Olaf, a character from the movie Frozen was also seen among other balloons of different cartoon characters. The parade is also honored by Santa, himself with his team of reindeer’s.
The spectators in the front line had the best view. They were feeling like the royalty, having the best possible position in all those present. It was the official kick off for the Christmas season. How everyone enjoyed this event, specially the kids.
I am writing to express my opinion, share my experiences and to maybe provide some insight. My blog is addressing women at 50 ( but men are welcome to read my posts) ,their issues and the questions that come up at this stage in life. I don’t aim to teach, but to learn together.
