Kirstie Alley is Excited to Feel ‘Something Normal’ During Upcoming Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade

by Halle Ames

Actress Kirstie Alley is only human. Like us, she is pumped to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade tomorrow.

Picture this. There is a slight chill in the air. You wake up late because you have the day off, and you make a piping hot cup of coffee. You slowly mosey on over to the couch to wrap up in your favorite fuzzy blanket and turn on the Parade. Once the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is over, you continue to watch the dog show while yelling at the TV for your favorite pooch to win. That sounds like a perfect start to your turkey day!

Kirstie Alley is Thankful

Well, you aren’t alone. Kirstie Alley is in the same boat as you. In a tweet this afternoon, she shared how thankful she is for “something normal.”

“Thankful for The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade tomorrow !! Something normal.. Yes yes yes I know it’s pre-recorded so don’t come at me with that. I don’t care. It’s something wonderful.”

The tweet already has more than 150 retweets, 20 quote tweets, and 2,600 likes.

Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

Like Alley said, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will be a virtual event this year. However, it will still include the beloved Broadway performances, giant balloons, and festive floats. The store also announced that the tradition would not have crowds. In addition, they will not go along with the traditional parade route.

For the last 94 years, this has been a Macy’s staple that brings families to huddle together around the TV while making breakfast. As the saying goes, the show must go on, pandemic or not! So instead of canceling the event, the department store has decided to get with the times and go virtual for the first time.

In a statement from Susan Tercero, the executive producer of the Parade, said that the event is an essential part of family traditions for the holidays.

“Under the unique challenges of these unparalleled times, we felt it was important to continue this cherished holiday tradition that has been the opening act to the holiday season for generations of families. While it will certainly look different in execution, this year’s Macy’s Parade celebration will once again serve its historical purpose—to bring joy into the hearts of millions across the nation.”

Well, we are thankful to see any part of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
