We sort of do some of the same, we watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade and then by tradition we watch Miracle on 34th street (1947). It's a movie that has Thanksgiving Day celebration, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade and most of all, Santa officially arrives...

later that night, (usually having sandwichs then or a second helping of pie), we will watch either Home Alone, Elf or something like that....

I cannot miss the Macy's Parade, I think I get more excited than the boys when we finally see Santa.
Football is always on, not by our choice. We try to watch one short Christmas cartoon before bed.

First thing would be good morning American just have in the background untill they start talking about the balloon being setup for the parade. Typically it starts at the warehousevuntl night before and you seem them make the drive ny.

2nd would've Macys day parade and usual will record the McDonald's parade from Chicago.

3rd on WEN a new tradition for me in the last 5 years. They replay a special documentary on Boo, Garfield goose and Fraser. They even show the old shorts the three elves snow fairy and frosty snow man.

Last all Christmas cartoons and movies

Put the turkey in, Macy's parade, Dog Show, Football, and then Christmas movies while we eat and then decorate.

The Today Show: gettinready to go to DH's parent's house for breakfast

Macy's Parade: after breakfast

Dog show: just because it's on after the parade

Football: on at my parent's house after dinner

I have been able to watch Miracle on 34th Street a couple of years between our family visits in the afternoon.

I've always tuned in to see some of the parades if I can.
