That sounds very much like our day, minus the football

I always have the parade on TV but I miss so much because of other time consuming chores, like cooking the dinner and gettinge everything ready so I learned to DVR the parade then I can sit down and enjoy it and the best part I can zip through the commercials.
Maybe this year I can actually watch it without recording it since I told hubby we are going out for dinner this Thanksgiving and he's in complete agreement.

The Macy's Parade in the morning (Mr. isn't interested, though ... he puts up with me yelling "Come here! Look at THIS!"). In the evening we often kick off the season with a kinescope of a 1950's Lawrence Welk broadcast that features Christmas music, or something else Christmas-themed.

I do it too. It's not fun watching the parade alone and my hubby is not interested so I'm always yelling, Hon come look, LOL, it's just a natural thing to want to share with the hubby.

Football and Christmas movies. Got tired of the way the Macy's parade was presented on tv with all the musical numbers (that are lip synced ugh).

I watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade, then once our guests come over, they watch football.

Good question!

I turn the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade on for my daughter and will try to catch a few minutes of that before I head off to the kitchen. - But, since I'm usually in there all day, I don't pay much attention to what is on. - I do like to have some Christmas tunes playing if possible though.
