This year, my husband and I decided to spend Thanksgiving at home, in New York City, and go out for a nice dinner. Just the two of us. PRINT was one of the first restaurants which we discovered after moving to New York, for this reason we thought it might be a good choice to go there for Thanksgiving dinner. What I love about the restaurant is the fact, that they support local products from local farmers and shops. PRINT also offered a special menu for Thanksgiving, including Heritage Turkey Breast, wild mushroom-butternut squash cornbread stuffing, cranberry sauce, yukon potatoes, brussels sprouts, thyme-turkey jus, Pumpkin Pie Brûlée whipped crème fraîche and caramelized apples bourbon gelato, gingerbread crisp.
- Originally known as Macy’s Christmas Parade—to signify the launch of the Christmas shopping season—the first Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade took place in New York City in 1924. It was launched by Macy’s employees and featured animals from the Central Park Zoo. Today, some 3 million people attend the annual parade and another 44 million watch it on television.
- Tony Sarg, a children’s book illustrator and puppeteer, designed the first giant hot air balloons for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in 1927. He later created the elaborate mechanically animated window displays that grace the façade of the New York store from Thanksgiving to Christmas.
- Snoopy has appeared as a giant balloon in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade more times than any other character in history. As the Flying Ace, Snoopy made his sixth appearance in the 2006 parade.
