I used to enjoy watching the New York City Thanksgiving Day parade — the bands, the floats, and especially the big balloons. I would be glued to the television set from the beginning to end, but not anymore.
It has been a long while since I enjoyed watching the parade on TV.
Today, the telecast is not coverage of a parade. Rather, it is a blatant wall-to-wall advertisement for the current musicals playing on Broadway or the latest boy or girl band that Disney is trying to promote.
I actually saw the parade in person a few years ago and enjoyed it immensely. Too bad I can't enjoy it on television any longer.
Happy Thanksgiving anyway!
