There's no rest for the celebrators. With Halloween officially behind us, Americans everywhere have officially descended into the miasma of "holiday season," which rolls Thanksgiving, Christmas, Bodhi Day, Hanukkah, Pancha Ganapati, Kwanzaa and any other significant days or weeks into a two-month stretch of good vibes. Of course, that means it's time for the announcements to come in, beginning with a commercial affair we can't look away from: the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
This year's march, beginning at 9AM on November 23, will once again attract 3.5 million spectators to the streets of Manhattan, New York for a string of floats, balloons, musical acts from somewhat recognizable names, and an appearance by Santa Claus himself. Who's involved? At the top of this November 1 morning, Macy's announced the full line-up.
