Growing up in the tri-state area is beneficial for many reasons and one in particular is the ability to attend the Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City. The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade has been around for over eighty years and I have been fortunate to have attended several times in my life.
This year’s lineup of balloons include many children (and adult) favorites such as Paddington Bear, Thomas the Tank Engine, Hello Kitty, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Charlie Brown and the Pillsbury Dough Boy. Each year there are different balloons with some additions and subtractions from the previous year.
There are the high school bands from around the country and of course there is the arrival of Santa’s Sleigh at the end of the parade.
Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on all those things that you are thankful for:
I am thankful for the time to celebrate family and each other.
I am thankful for the holiday season and Christmas trees, fun parties with friends and family and Santa!
I am thankful for the health of my friends and family and for the support that we show each other.
I am thankful for good music which can make me smile when I need it the most.
I am thankful for my dog Taxi- for bringing such joy to all of us for the past 13 years.
I am thankful for a good book, quiet time and a warm fire.
And last but not least, I am thankful for apple pie ( a la mode of course!).
Enjoy the day with your family and Happy Thanksgiving!
