Everyone loves a Parade! Most have marching bands, all kinds of performers and floats, none can compare to the little Parade that started in 1924 along Broadway in New York City. This Parade has balloons the size of buildings. It is the Parade that has become known as the Parade that kicks of the Holiday Season. The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade!
Bats and Owls have always had their place in Halloween lore. At one time thought to be spirits of the dead.
With bats living in caves they were linked to the underworld. When people would hear the screech of the owl they were afraid that it was demons screaming out from the darkness. Even black cats were believed to be witches who prowled the streets for an unsuspecting passerby to cast an evil spell on. Many creatures that come out at night were feared to be lost souls reincarnated to continue making havoc of mankind’s lives.
