This picture reminds me of the Seinfeld episode when Kramer sunbathes in butter...
Caveat ~ I am posting this repeat from the last two years because 1. I am lazy and 2. I will soon be having a scrumptious feast in San Francisco with my French flatmates John and Pierre and some of their closest French friends who came out to California for this year's Thanksgiving. No way was I going to miss out on this dinner so I hopped on a plane, San Francisco or bust. Pictures and stories are forthcoming :)
For the third year in a row, I won't be in front of the TV early Thursday morning watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Did you know that the parade was not started by Macy’s, but rather their employees? The employees of Macy’s were once made up mostly of immigrants who were truly appreciative of their lives and opportunities here in the United States.
All from different backgrounds, countries and religions, they gathered at 125th Street dressed as clowns and other costumes carrying balloons. They marched down to 34th Street in celebration and gratitude to Macy’s. 250,000 people came out to watch and be part of the celebration of life itself. It was such a success that Macy’s fully embraced it the following year and it has been part of our tradition ever since. That was back in 1927. Incroyable, non?
Bon Appetit! and a very Happy Thanksgiving to you all! May you have much to be grateful for... I know I do!Meilleurs voeux de San Francisco ~ Best wishes from San Francisco. Laura
