In case you’re free Thanksgiving morning, you need to both chill out or prepare dinner. Don’t activate the pointless, three-hour-long business generally known as the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
I don’t wish to hear any complaining about the way you just like the parade. That’s precisely what Macy’s needs you to assume. What if I instructed you you don’t have to observe bloated characters float by in a huge show of commercialism? Oh, it’s this character that I’m presupposed to take pleasure in, as a result of once I take pleasure in it, an organization earnings. Oh nice, it’s that character that my youngsters are going to recollect exists, after which they’ll beg me for toys of all of it day whereas I’m cooking. No thanks.
After which on the finish of the parade, Santa? Severely? Not solely is it not even December, however on this present day we’re at the moment celebrating one other vacation. One that doesn’t revolve round presents or mendacity to youngsters. Oh look youngsters, Santa is right here, you possibly can inform them. Why? As a result of a division retailer needs your eyeballs on their TV present. Not as a result of it in any manner is sensible for Santa to pop right down to New York Metropolis on his in the future off throughout his busiest season of the yr.
The entire parade is only one big business, and you understand what I do when commercials come on TV? I skip them.
