Thanksgiving 2011

Thanksgiving isn’t really a tradition that we usually celebrate in the philippines like in the U.S. , so I really don’t have a single idea about the traditions, what to do, where to go the only thing about it I really know is TURKEY I know its pathetic soooo I’m gonna tell you about my first time to ever celebrate Thanksgiving.


in my previous post:

https://smalltowndreamers.wordpress.com/2012/11/03/macys-thanksgiving-parade-2011

I talked about the earlier events that happened during the day.

now I’m gonna tell you the later part. since our line of work isn’t in the office type they don’t usually take breaks even if its the holidays even more they are usually more busy during holidays.so you’ll imagine how it feels like, don’t get me wrong its not really that bad I somehow like it. but since its my first time celebrating Thanksgiving and I really wanted to experience the whole shindig, so you can say that I was pretty lucky that I landed a shift lining with the holiday. 😀 ❤

but some of my housemates weren’t so lucky but at least I had a great time with Leigh, Karen and Carlos attending the parade earlier in the day after the parade was finished we walked around for a bit and went straight home coz one of my housemate’s planned to celebrate thanksgiving dinner with her aunt and invited us to join in their house but unfortunately they weren’t able to pick us up.

but FORTUNATELY ate Chacha’s Aunt and Uncle decided to celebrate their T.G. Dinner at our House so everyone was excited. they spent the whole afternoon preparing the spread while we were waiting upstairs (completely USELESS) wish I could’ve helped more. since most of us were off work at night so there was a lot of us.

Even though I wasn’t able to Celebrate this with my family was a bit disappointing, but my friends being there by my side, with people that missed their families too we were in the same boat and eating together with them I can say that I wouldn’t celebrate it any other way.

look who’s eyeing the

Thank You Tito and Tita Doris – Chacha’s Family  for the Best thanksgiving!

.With all the Depressing things that Happened in N.J and NYC I really want to think of happy thoughts so.

I Recalled A Happy Memory While I Was There. to Give thanks for all the blessings that I received and to remind everyone to Always be thankful for everything that God gave us may it be big or small.

Thank you Everyone for reading My Post Hope you Liked it. 🙂

#thingsimthankfulforthisyear (2011)  I’m Thankful for My Family and Friends coz without them i won’t be Where I am now, all the Good and Bad stuff that happened to me coz without those I won’t be the kind of person I am today, for my Role models and Dreams for helping me stand up everyday and strive for More,I am thankful for all the people who were mean and those that looked down on me coz they taught me to be stronger coz the world is not fair and sometimes you have to fightback. and Thank You God for giving me a lot of things to be thankful for 🙂

Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade 2011

We left the House a bit early, hoping to get a good spot for the parade, it was a bit of a hassle coz some of the roads were closed and  a lot of people were already roaming the streets. I can’t believe the number of people already this early. the Macy’s parade was really an anticipated event here.

I was lucky that we were able to attend the Macy’s Thanks Giving Parade last year it was really beautiful all the dancers, marching bands, mascots, Floats, and especially the Balloons all the colors and the sound of people cheering. it was Great. Hope you enjoy the pictures.

.These are some of the Balloons that I was able to get.

Sonic the Hedgehog

Philsbury

Spongebob

Watched the whole parade for almost 2 hrs my neck hurts because of all the people around and my feet hurt because coz of all the feet that stepped on it. hungry and a bit cranky. Time to EAt!
