Next week is Thanksgiving and the beginning for many holiday traditions. I grew up in New Jersey where Thanksgiving morning was spent watching the Macy's Parade from New York City. I was fortunate one year to actually go to the parade and experience it first hand. What a great time I had watching all the balloons go past, going to the F.A.O. Swarz toy store, looking at the Christmas windows of Macy's and other department stores, then heading to Rockefeller Center to look at the tree and ice skaters. Many families spend Thanksgiving weekend buying their tree and decorating the house and tree. Here are some books to get you ready for your holiday traditions.
