I Heart Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade!

For as long as I can remember, I have loved watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. I especially like the first hour, which features acts from popular Broadway shows. I have been introduced to some of my favorite shows this way, including "The Secret Garden" and "Wicked." This morning's first hour didn't disappoint with great numbers from "Chorus Line" and "The Color Purple."

Something else that makes this year's parade special is that "my boys," the Jonas Brothers, are singing on a float. I interviewed Nick (center) two years ago for Clubhouse. These guys are very talented (Nick played Gavroche in "Les Miserable" on Broadway) — and evidently big on the Disney Channel — but they also have hearts for God.

Another thing I love to see in the Macy's Parade are the Radio City Rockettes. I had the opportunity to see their show two years ago when I went to New York City to interview Nick. I was just telling someone the other day that when the Rockettes came on stage — wearing their green velvet dresses and kicking in unison — I teared up. It was just so visually stunning! I highly recommend catching the show if you ever have the opportunity.

Well, the Sesame Street float just went by. This is about the time I lose interest and move on to other holiday festivities. Happy Thanksgiving!
