In all seriousness do you think there will be a Macy’s Thanksgiving day parade? I’ve been wondering I haven’t heard much yet , but I could see it going either way..

I sure hope so. They're having fireworks tomorrow at eight. I think that's a good sign. Crowd control is my only concern. If they can't limit the crowd, then they may cancel. But that will be hard to do in a public place as big a downtown NY.

I hope so too. Watching the parade has been a yearly tradition for me, and it's hard to imagine waking up on Thanksgiving morning without it. Especially since Santa shows up at the very end to usher in the Christmas season!

COUNTDOWN TO THANKSGIVING 2020: 145 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO NOVEMBER 2020: 120 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO THE BERS 2020: 59 DAYS


Happy 4th of July! It's a big holiday here folks. It's weird but I often compare the 4th of July to Thanksgiving in a strange way. They're both very special and unique holidays. Today's countdowns on this holiday are the following: 145 days till Thanksgiving, 120 days till November and 59 days till The Bers. The Thanksgiving Countdown thread doesn't take any holidays off from the count. And now we focus in on just enjoying this big summer holiday. We are on a truly special day here. BBQ, fireworks and more for many of us. Our next milestone is in 9 days when we reach the "Final Fifty" as the 50-day marker to The Bers arrives. That will really hit us when it comes I believe. Just incredible and I hope you all have a great holiday today. Have a great 4th of July!​

Happy 4th of July! Burgers on the grill and root beer floats are going to be the limit of the celebrations here, and I am guessing the local fireworks "show", (a few families who have an annual display about a mile away) will happen. I hope you all have a wonderful day!

I can remember thinking this past January "I can't wait until it's hot outside and the days until Thanksgiving are dwindling away". Well, here we are. AND I LOVE IT!!! I'm really looking forward to the upcoming Fall season. :)

Charlie Brown is the absolutely best thanksgiving show. I bought the BlueR when it came out but ended up giving all three in the set to my cousin. She has. 10 children and no TV service.

COUNTDOWN TO THANKSGIVING 2020: 144 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO NOVEMBER 2020: 119 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO THE BERS 2020: 58 DAYS

Happy Independence Weekend! I hope everyone had a great 4th and will have a great 5th today. Maybe these 3 counts can help you start off on the right foot today. We have 144 days left until Thanksgiving. We have 119 days left until November. We have 58 days left until The Bers. Those 3 counts can help any groggy person this Sunday morning from maybe a late night of fun and fireworks. Did everyone get to see any? Despite the town not having them this year we still saw some. I won't name names because I don't think they're supposed to be technically doing them but what would the 4th be without fireworks? Kind of like Thanksgiving without turkey. Perish the thought. And Macy's put on their fireworks. Now they need to make sure the parade happens on Thanksgiving Day. Have a great Independence Weekend!

COUNTDOWN TO THANKSGIVING 2020: 143 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO NOVEMBER 2020: 118 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO THE BERS 2020: 57 DAYS


Happy Summer Sweatfest! Oh yeah you feel it out there today and this week I'm sure. With the 4th over and the holiday weekend ending we now are in the grips of summer. And we're into these 3 countdowns all summer long. They are the following: 143 to Thanksgiving, 118 to November, and 57 to The Bers. Woohoo. All 3 counts look good to start this summery week. And our next milestone is 1 week from today. We will have reached the 50 day marker to The Bers. The Final Fifty we should call it. How's that sound? And that is why now is the time I start looking slowly (but surely) ahead towards The Bers and all the things we love the most. But I've got summer to enjoy first! Have a great Summer Sweatfest!​

COUNTDOWN TO THANKSGIVING 2020: 142 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO NOVEMBER 2020: 117 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO THE BERS 2020: 56 DAYS


Happy Week Into July! Well let's get right to the 3 counts this morning first. We have 142 days until Thanksgiving. We have 117 days left till November arrives. And we have 56 days (that'd be 8 weeks) until The Bers are here. Next Monday we will reach the "Final Fifty" to The Bers. It does have a nice ring to it. Pretty amazing we have 8 weeks of hardcore summer till The Bers arrive (which is when we start to wind down summer). I'm going to enjoy it as much as possible. I love the mornings where it's still not too hot out and you can walk around in shorts because it's warm enough. That's one thing I love about summer. Hope everyone is thinking turkey thoughts this Tuesday. Have a great Week Into July!​

COUNTDOWN TO THANKSGIVING 2020: 141 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO NOVEMBER 2020: 116 DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO THE BERS 2020: 55 DAYS


Happy Summer Thunderstorms! Summer has those thunderstorms to cool you off but then the humidity just seems to spike. Autumn though? It gives you those cool breezes but still nice warm and sunny days. It has the perfect combination of weather. And these 3 countdowns are the perfect combination for all of us: 141 to Thanksgiving, 116 to November, and 55 to The Bers. They all look perfect to me and my eyes. And our next milestone will be on Monday when we reach the "Final Fifty" to The Bers. Think about that. I know that I will the rest of this week. And think about the fact CW should be posting a great video for us tomorrow on Thursday. We love Thursdays here! Have a great Summer Thunderstorms!​
