This year's featured Latin artist is Latin Grammy Award-winning Colombian band Diamante Eléctrico. The alt-rock trio will perform at the 90th edition of the star-studded event taking place Thursday in New York City.
For this milestone anniversary, the retailer aims to strike a balance between honoring the parade’s history and looking forward.
Watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade in person on the streets of New York is a pretty majestic experience, but it also comes with a side of crowds, icy wind, and a whole lot of waiting around. This year, Macy’s is partnering with NBCUniversal and Verizon to add 360-degree cameras along the route of the parade so you can live stream and watch it from any angle you’d like without leaving your home.
Kick off your holiday with a big, time-honored tradition (no, not rewatching all your favorite Thanksgiving-themed episodes): Watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade!
48 million Americans are expected to hit the road and skies, an increase of about a million from last year.
Last year, tired and a bit overwhelmed after starting a new job (hi, Slate!), I did something I hadn’t done since grad school: I took the family to Thanksgiving dinner at a restaurant. It was not like I remembered. In the early 1990s, it seemed, the only places open were afflicted by harsh overhead lighting, dry turkey, and lots of lonely-looking people. This time it was a well-regarded restaurant, and I was far from the only person surrounded by loved ones.
Thanksgiving is a time to be with family and friends — but there's no need to be rude.
Social Cues: South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley and singer Justin Bieber are also trending on social media.
An increasing number of stores are closing on Thanksgiving Day in response to backlash against the trend of starting Black Friday sales a day early.
When is Thanksgiving Day 2016?
Flying this Thanksgiving? If so, you’ll be in good company. More than 27 million passengers are expected to fly on U.S. airlines domestically and internationally between Nov. 21 and Dec. 2, 2016, according to the Airlines for America trade group. And there'll be another surge of fliers just a month later for the Christmas and New Year's holidays.
You know the drill: Trace your hand, then add the details. Two feet, a beak, a single eyeball. Color it in, and voila! Hand becomes turkey. You know the rest too: The Pilgrims fled England and landed on Plymouth Rock. The native people there, the Wampanoag, taught them to farm the land. In 1621, they sat down together for a thanksgiving feast, and we've been celebrating it ever since.
I’ll be the first to admit I do most of my shopping online. I have an Amazon Prime account — I even buy my groceries on a computer. But both of my parents own their own business and I know how important it is to give back to your community. Here’s why you need to shop on Small Business Saturday.
American Express may have invented Small Business Saturday as a shopping holiday in 2010, but it has evolved into a “shop local” movement that gives retailers nationwide a considerable sales lift.
It’s hard for small businesses to compete with the big guys. But that’s why there’s Small Business Saturday. American Express founded Small Business Saturday in 2010, giving small businesses and brick-and-mortar stores across the country a special boost and a way to get shoppers’ attentions between Black Friday and Cyber Monday (Small Business Saturday will take place on Saturday Nov. 26 this year).
Black Friday is now the biggest shopping day of the year in the UK. Introduced to the UK by Amazon, its effect on British stores has increased year on year. Last year’s figures were the most staggering so far: British shops saw an incredible 223 per cent increase in their daily sales average according to insights from technology company Ve.
Crowds, lines and chaos -- Black Friday is one hectic “holiday.” For those opting out of Nov. 25’s shopping frenzy, you’re in luck -- Cyber Monday is close behind. In fact, some companies are even starting their online deals early. Wal-Mart's “Cyber Week” begins on Black Friday. You can get Best Buy's crazy good deals now.
The line between what constitutes a Black Friday 2016 deal and a Cyber Monday one has pretty much disappeared, but what we have here are a handful of tech deals specifically available for Cyber Monday, which is Nov. 28.
It's one of the world's most famous parades.
