Remember, Remember the Last Thursday of November [PHOTOS]
President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed many things and one such proclamation, in 1863, was that Thanksgiving would no longer move about every year, but be held on the last Thursday in November.
And so it is.
Boogiers – 86 years ago, Macy’s held its first annual parade which would become indisputably the most famous parade in the world. Ever.
The story goes that R.H. Macy, empathetic to his many immigrant employees who longed for their homes during the holiday season, decided to create an event for them and their families. Originally the Macy’s Christmas Parade, later the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Christmas Parade and finally the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Before your tryptophan naps and mashed potato dreams – have a look back at the parade and all its helium and rubber splendor.
Short and meaty just like your turkey. Happy Thanksgiving, peeps!
