As the fall season rolls around and everyone is beginning to become excited about Christmas, it is easy to forget about Thanksgiving, which can bring about the same, if not more, joy and excitement. Thanksgiving is a time of friends and family, the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and stuffing your face with more food than humanly possible. There is so much to be excited about during this holiday, and it is without a doubt one of the most underrated and ignored holidays.
Thanksgiving is the time to spend time with friends and family, especially those that you may not get to see most of the year. Whether you are taking a road trip to see your loved ones or have the privilege of having everyone close by, this holiday is the perfect time to catch up with one another while participating in all of your favorite traditions. It is extremely difficult to find time to relax and unwind with those that we care about during the busy times of the year, so times like Thanksgiving are the perfect opportunity to people we love without worrying about the daily stresses of life at the same time.
The annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is high on the list of things to look forward to during this season. Watching the parade on television or even in person may be an annual tradition for you and your friends and family. If you have never seen the parade, this may be a new tradition that you want to begin. The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is packed full of beautiful floats, dancing and performances from some of your favorite musical artists. If nothing else, this old or new tradition for you and your friends and family is sure to bring ample entertainment this Thanksgiving.
Out of everything that the Thanksgiving holiday has to offer, there is no doubt that the food is the absolute best part. Between all you can eat turkey, ham, dressing/stuffing (up to your discretion), sweet potato casserole, pecan pie and much more, you will find yourself eating more food than you ever thought would be humanly possible. Whether you and your friends and family go all out “Master Chef” style or opt for a more take-out friendly route, this is one of the few holidays throughout the year where eating your weight in carbs is more than socially acceptable.
Thanksgiving is a holiday that has so much to offer. As the fall season has arrived, it is so easy to make a beeline for the Christmas season and completely overlook its wonderful preceding holiday. So, this year, try not to wish the holidays away and enjoy your time with loved ones, watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and make sure to eat your weight in carbs this Thanksgiving season!
