Happy New Year!

December 29, 2008

Hey, it’s that time of year again. You know, where you wake up one morning and can’t remember what year it is? Because the year changed?

We found this article about the origin of the Times Square celebrations. Take a look and enjoy some great, old photographs.

And if you’re interested in the ball itself, read more about its history.

Happy 2009!


Happy Thanksgiving!

November 26, 2008

There are so many nice things about Thanksgiving.

1. Turkey
2. If you don’t like turkey, there’s shopping on Friday.
3. If shopping scares you, there’s the Macy’s parade!
4. If you don’t like parades, well, I’m all out of suggestions.

If you do like parades, maybe you’ll enjoy reading about the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade – on Google Books too! Link to Macy’s site?

And if you aren’t put off by shameless commercialism, there’s some fun stuff here too.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
