"Priests of the Temples of Syrinx" so you have listened to Rush and you're still a blind fool? oh well nuff said.

Maybe you will SEE how long this has been going on for? probably not!

In the 1920s many of Macy's department store employees were first-generation immigrants(from where?). Proud of their new American heritage,(really?) they wanted to celebrate the United States holiday of Thanksgiving with the type of festival their parents had loved in Europe(Bolshevism).

In 1924, the inaugural parade (originally known as the Macy's "Christmas" Parade and later the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Christmas Parade was staged by the store. Employees and professional entertainers marched from 145th Street in Harlem to Macy's flagship store on 34th Street dressed in vibrant costumes.There were floats, professional bands and live animals borrowed from the Central Park Zoo.At the end of that first parade, as has been the case with every parade since, Santa Claus was welcomed into Herald Square(did the trumpets sound?). At this first parade, however, the Jolly Old Elf was *enthroned* on the Macy's balcony at the 34th Street store entrance, where he was then "crowned" "King of the Kiddies".With an audience of over a quarter of a million people,the parade was such a success that Macy's declared it would become an annual event.

Large animal-shaped balloons,were produced by the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company in Akron, Ohio.(see Goodyear LOGO)= a statue of the famous god of mythology known to the ancient Romans as Mercury, and to the Greeks as Hermes.

"oh yea one more thing from The Seeker
this is what it really 'says' to people with the eyes to see IT. FACTOID

the magick of the Red star macey's"

Um...there is no "k" in the word "magic" (except in your very active imagination, implying a communist connection), oh and generally speaking, symbols aren't read as actual letters or words when included in sentence or statement (unless the mushrooms say they are, of course).

I'm not trying to pick on you, it's just that what you type is so fricken' hilarious.

"Priests of the Temples of Syrinx" so you have listened to Rush and you're still a blind fool? oh well nuff said."

...and yet you post a long diatribe as if the parade was an act of sedition.

I understand now. Dosing time is @ 4 p.m., and it's only 3 p.m..

Tell Elvis I said "hi"!

...and did you realize that this thread is about the Macy's ad, not the article? Read comprehension!

Find a mirror and read the first line of your post to yourself.

OK, hopee. So a team that "sucks" swept last years champs and just beat your team 3 out of the last 4 games to win the title. You're a genius! You may want to go out and buy the new ATT Lebron James phone. It vibrates but doesn't have a ring!!!

Miami FLORIDA... maybe they thought the game was so close that they could announce a winner and make him win by default!

Just like they did on the presidential race Bush v Gore when they announced Bush the winner with no oficial announcement.
