Everybody Loves a Parade
I grew up in a musical home. I don't necessarily mean musical in that my parents are musically inclined (although my mom is a beautiful piano player with a voice to match). I mean we like musicals. A lot. And the best part of the parade, hands down, is before the parade even starts when the Broadway musicals send a number to be performed in front of Macys. I just love it. Baking does not start until the musical numbers are done, right up to the very last Rockette kick.
I think most people know that there is a writer's strike going on in Hollywood right now. Of course we're interested! Life without Heroes and Chuck? I think not! But the fact that there is also a strike going on on Broadway probably doesn't register on most people's radar. But the first think I thought was, "No Macy's Day Parade musical numbers?" Deep breath people! They just announced that particular show will go on.
I was giddily telling miss africankelli the other day how excited I was for the parade, and she told me I'm probably the only person she knows who actually watches it. Really? Anyone else excited for the parade?! LET'S HAVE A PARADE!
