A couple of weeks ago, the lovely and talented Cricket Muse and I debated which children’s book character deserved to be a balloon in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Cricket opted for the bouncy joie de vivre of Tigger.
I, on the other hand, felt that Peter from The Snowy Day was far more parade worthy.
Well, the commenters have spoken… and Peter has won hands down! So WOO!
Because of this, I have decided to do a bit of research to determine how these Thanksgiving balloons are selected. Once I am armed with this knowledge, I shall lobby for Peter’s inclusion in a future parade.
Wish me luck!
And who knows? Perhaps one day that imaginative boy in the iconic red snowsuit will finally (and deservedly) earn a place of honor floating down 6th Avenue.
