I have to do some Googling but my mom was saying this morning that she thought they used to show the Detroit Thanksgiving Day parade on TV when she was young (in the late 50’s/early 60’s).

  1. redqueenxlt said: yes Hudson’s Department Store sponsored a parade and it was televised well into the 70’s anyway. What is the question?
  2. minou said: It was shown on TV in my lifetime (at least into the ’80s). That was the one we watched in my family, naturally.
  3. gilmoure reblogged this from hikergirl and added:
    We’re switching between Macy’s and Chicago parades, as commercials come up.
  4. paolaandfrancesca said: Interesting. It would be awesome if they would show the parades from more cities.

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.
