Thanksgiving: A Remembrance of Holiday Celebrations and Traditions

Thanksgiving: A Remembrance of Holiday Celebrations and Traditions

Thanksgiving has always been a very special holiday, stuffed with traditions observed and beloved, for many people, since early childhood. The Thanksgiving turkey, Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, the guests from far and near, even the quick nap on the sofa before the start of the Big Game, they all help to create a holiday experience that hasn’t varied much from generation to generation. This Thanksgiving piece presents a video about the origins of the Thanksgiving Holiday, as well as a video of the 2009 Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade.
