The fondest memories were the Macy's parade, and seeing Hopalong Cassidy, and other stars of television, as wwell as the large floatsin the parade. It was always very cold outside , and there were always large crowds. In those days, there was no screening required to see the parade, as it was safe, and we didn't have to worry about terrorists.

Regarding the food, we always had a choice of white or dark turkey meat; the aroma of that turkey cooking in my Mother's oven, for hours, was very pleasant. Of course, the stuffing which we had, as well as the cranberry sauce, added to the delicacies of the day.

Years later, when I moved out of Brooklyn, and I had to fly into LaGuardia for the Thanksgiving weekend, I realized that it was undoubtedly one of the busiest times of the year to fly, as it was very hectic at the airport, even if I returned days after Thanksgiving ended.
