of course… ’tis always about your egotistical, narcissistic self, Heart LaMarr
The Macy’s parade has gotten to be crap. You don’t get to see much of the parade itself anymore. Mostly just acts in front of the Macy’s store. That or the announcers droning on endlessly. Plus the bands rarely play any actual Christmas music.
She is such a brat.
They can go downtown and see the Mummers.
Because I live in Philadelphia and love this strip, I’ve always thought that Heart and Dean, were they real people, would live on Spruce Street.If that were so, all Heart would have to do would be to parade to the 900 block to see the historic marker for Sarah Josepha Hale, the “Mother of Thanksgiving” who lived on this block in the 1860s. Mrs.Hale was a poet, novelist and “editress”(her term) of one of the most popular magazines of 19th century America. She also grew up with New England’s tradition of Thanksgiving, which was largely unknown outside of New England in the 19th century.
She petitioned 5 presidents about making it a national observance. The first 4 essentially ignored her. Abraham Lincoln, however,understood her motivations (he only had a civil war to win, after all),and declared it a national holiday in 1863.
Heart and Dean could also “visit” Mrs. Hale at Philadelphia’s Laurel Hill Cemetery.
Oh, and don’t let me forget—-Mrs. Hale also wrote “Mary had a Little Lamb”.
There’s already one in Philadelphia — join up!
