What was the first Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade originally held for?
- To remind New Yorkers about the holiday
- To remind New Yorkers to shop for Christmas
In Macy's defense, Thanksgiving wouldn't be given an official day of celebration for almost another 20 years so even though the first Thanksgiving Day Parade took place in New York City in 1924, it was actually to remind people that it was actually Christmas themed and was to remind folks that it's about time for you to go out and buy your sweaters.
- To bring New York together
- To honor the President
