Nov 20 : 04 days till Thanksgiving

Did you know that while there are many “Thanksgiving Day” parades held across the country, the most famous has to be the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City?

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is held annually every Thanksgiving Day and is televised nationally by NBC. The parade features parade floats with specific themes, scenes from Broadway plays, large balloons of cartoon characters and TV personalities, and high school marching bands.

The float that traditionally ends the Macy’s Parade is the Santa Claus float, the arrival of which is an unofficial sign of the beginning of the Christmas season.

Thanksgiving Day in America is a time to offer thanks, a time for family gatherings and holiday meals. A time of turkeys, stuffing, and pumpkin pie. A time for Indian corn, holiday parades and giant balloons. We are delighted to invite you to partake in our Thanksgiving celebration. Our table is full this year, but we always have room for one more! So join us for a new Did You Know? each day as we count down to Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving will be celebrated on Thursday November 24, 2011.

Name Your PC Day
Do you have an unnatural and unhealthy obsession for your computer? Is your laptop your best friend? Well you need help. And fast!

And while you’re waiting for the medical authorities to come and pick you up, take a moment and think of a good name for your electronic friend.
