Lighten Up Your Busy Thanksgiving Morning

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is held on Thanksgiving morning. The parade is held in New York City. It starts out at 77th street and Central Park, the parade then makes its way to Macy’s in Herald Square (which is the original Macy’s store).

You can watch the parade being televised on NBC. The parade starts at approximately 9am. If you want to get a good viewing of the parade, I suggest getting there at around 6:30am. Click here to see a map of the parade route.

Every year there are performaces at the parade. This year there will be performances by Mary J. Blige, Cee Lo Green, Cobra Starship, Avril Lavigne, and more.

New York Magazine has a good article if you are interested in attending the parade. It gives information and tips about attending the parade.

Some Simple Thanksgiving Decorating

There are a lot of ways you can decorate for Thanksgiving. The easy ways are leaving out your old pumpkins and gourds that were left over from Halloween or go out and buy some. You can find them in most super markets around this time.  You could also go out and buy a blow up turkey. You can buy some Indian corn and hang it anywhere in your house.
