 The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade happens every year for Thanksgiving. The parade started in 1924, making it the second oldest Thanksgiving Parade in the United States. This year the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will be held Thursday, November 25th.


Along with the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, football has become one of the most popular viewing traditions on Thanksgiving. There are many people in the world that love to sit down and watch football while feasting on all the delicious food that is provided on this wonderful day. Watching football on Thanksgiving has been around for a surprisingly long time. The tradition of watching football on Thanksgiving day seems like a very modern tradition but Americans have been sitting down on Turkey Day since the 19th century to watch the all famous football game.


There is absolutely nothing better than sitting down to watch a good movie after a long day of feasting on Thanksgiving dinner. An amazing movie that you will never get tired of watching on Thanksgiving day is, The classic Charlie Brown Thanksgiving day special. This movie is enjoyed by children and picky teens. This classic movie can even be enjoyed by adults. 


As you may know football is a very well loved and popular sport. Sometimes something that is better than just watching football is watching live football on Thanksgiving Day that celebrates the beloved sport. The Rudy Ruettiger football movie is not only based on a true story but celebrates the well known and popular sport that everyone calls  football. Everyone in the room will enjoy the inspirational story of Rudy.
