Countdown to Thanksgiving (T minus 2) – Thanksgiving Day Parade Video

Tuesday, November 21st, 2006

Here in New York it wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Whether you’re watching it on TV or actually along the parade route itself, the parade is a very big part of every New Yorker’s holiday. And of course a very big part of the parade is the balloons! From the preparation and filling of the balloons before the parade till afterwards they are a big reason to watch the parade. Especially in person.

I can across this video of an interview with one of the balloon handlers over at Youtube and thought you’d enjoy a little behind the scenes view of these balloons. Enjoy

President’s Thanksgiving Day 2006 Proclamation
By the President of the United States of America


November 16, 2006

As Americans gather with family and friends to celebrate Thanksgiving Day, we give thanks for the many ways that our Nation and our people have been blessed.

The Thanksgiving tradition dates back to the earliest days of our society, celebrated in decisive moments in our history and in quiet times around family tables. Nearly four centuries have passed since early settlers gave thanks for their safe arrival and pilgrims enjoyed a harvest feast to thank God for allowing them to survive a harsh winter in the New World. General George Washington observed Thanksgiving during the Revolutionary War, and in his first proclamation after becoming President, he declared November 26, 1789, a national day of “thanksgiving and prayer.” During the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln revived the tradition of proclaiming a day of thanksgiving, reminding a divided Nation of its founding ideals.
