It’s officially the holiday season friends and I love it.  Our family has a few holiday traditions that make me smile and remember my childhood.   One of my favorite memories from Thanksgiving was waking up on Thanksgiving Day,  drinking hot chocolate and watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.    My grandmother was always in the kitchen peeking through the shutter doors at the musical acts and my little brother would climb up super close to the television.    One year when we weren’t having all of the family over, and my grandmother let us watch it in our pajamas – best Parade ever!    I’m going to pass this super fun tradition on to my children.  My daughter Piper and I have watched it together for years, she loves the Red Power Ranger Float.

I’m passing the tradition on to my sweet boys too.  I actually couldn’t wait and we’ve been on the bed all morning watching Youtube videos of past parades.    They are getting so excited about the giant floats and music.   Oil and Milo already love the Pikachu and Charlie Brown floats.   Oli knows who Santa Clause is because we visited him year at our local Macy’s,  you should see his face light up when he sees that final parade float with the real Santa.

The 2017 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade  is going to be so amazing!   My toddler Oli is the world’s biggest Paw Patrol fan and I cannot wait for him to see the unveiling of the 2017 floats.

This year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will feature a new opening that will feature an all-star ensemble cast of celebrities from pop culture, stage and TV all singing and dancing together in an epic performance of Dancin’ in The Street! Also, as part of the first hour of festivities Gwen Stefani will perform White Christmas at the Bryant Park ice rink surrounded by fans and skaters.  Gwen is my favorite.

Tune in at 9am to watch the year’s best parade on your local NBC station!

What is a good age to take the boys to New York to see the parade live?   I think it’s going on my parenting bucket list.
