ENTERTAINING: Thanksgiving Special

EntertainingTime Out

Turkey Day is almost here. This is the time of the year in the States we all gather together around the family table to give Thanks. Of course, I´m sure it´s the day most dreaded by all turkeys in the U.S.A. but what can I say? Without these beautiful but not very intelligent birds, Thanksgiving would not be Thanksgiving.

Another tradition is waking up to watch the annual Macy´s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City while mom is in the kitchen preparing Thanksgiving dinner. You can see performances of the latest and best Broadway musicals including the Rockettes as well as all the gigantic baloons with cartoon characters beloved by the kiddies . There are also the top high school marching bands from the entire 50 states with kids who have been practicing and selling cupcakes, etc. all year to finance this trip to New York for their chance to participate in this memorable parade. In between there are the floats with celebrities and singers strutting their stuff and finally Santa Claus himself with his reindeer to start off the holiday season.

Unfortunately we can´t see it direct here so the next best thing would be the entire parade (without advertising) from last year. Here is the link for you to see all 2 hrs.9 min. of the 2013 Macy´s Thanksgiving Day Parade. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kN6whlw1J5U

There is a great online musical web that has the best background music in the world. It´s BeautifulInstrumentals.com. No singing, only greatest easy listening instrumentals by the top orchestras of the era with timeless popular classics.
It´s the epitome of the original easy listening stations from the New York, New Jersey and Philly area. There is nothing like it on the web and is great for dining, working, resting or just chilling out.
