Thanksgiving weekend also starts the "Holiday Season" that continues to New Year's: Christmas decorations go up, and often Santa makes an appearance at the end of Thanksgiving weekend.
A standout Thanksgiving holiday event is the giant Macy's Parade, an annual tradition dating back to the 1920's, and famous for giant inflated balloon figures. (Some of these balloons migrate to Universal Orlando theme park, for daily Macy's Thanksgiving Parades during the Holiday Season.)
