Macy’s Day Parade

Macy’s Day Parade, The Geek Life is a weekly look at what is happening in the Geek Culture. Movies, Comics, Books, Video Games and TV Shows encompass more than just release dates and reviews. This week the Geek Life looks back and ahead at the Macy’s Day Parade.

When I was kid, I always loved the Macy’s Day Parade. That love started with the film A Miracle on 34th Street (1947); a film all children (and adults) should watch every year as it makes the essence of Santa Claus very real. There is also the added bonus of Maureen O’Hara who never loses her (cough) appeal either. I’m digressing. The parade has always had that mixture of holiday joy and pure insanity. Where else are you going to see Underdog come flying down a NY City street, watch Hordak dance on a float, or actually see Captain America and Wolverine battle Doctor Doom? It really is a marvel to witness first hand.

Now according to the official Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade web site, it is ‘the most popular holiday parade in America. Indeed, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade NY has been a Big Apple tradition since 1924. Attracting more than 3.5 million people to the streets of New York City each year, as well50 million TV viewers nationwide, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade has become so synonymous with Thanksgiving tradition in NYC that it’s often shortened to “The Macy’s Day Parade.”’
