Thanksgiving day, for those who don't know, is celebrated in The United States and Canada to pay gratitude towards blessing of past harvest season. This day is celebrated in a very unique and giant way.
The tradition which is running from past 90 years has many facts to tell us that we might not know.
It was then named as Macy's Christmas Parade and renamed as Thanksgiving day in 1927. And above you are watching the real advertisement from 1924.
Real elephants can be seen in the image above.
Here you can see a Felix. Others were toy soldiers and dragons.
A spiderman finger balloon!
The Parade was cancelled in 1942, 1943 and 1944 keeping the World War 2 in mind.
Starting from a 25-pound package, the requirement can get as high as 100-200 pounds of glitter for one float.
Now this is too much, 99% of the floats and balloons are hand painted!
You saw those visible strings, but there is a lot to these balloons when we look closely.
So go ahead and join them if you like the idea!
Such a unique way of paying gratitude deserves at least a share and comment!
