This pre–Turkey Day ritual, held near the American Museum of Natural History, has become almost as crowded as the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, but we prefer it to the main event. Why? We prefer to weave through the crowds, walking past the inflation stations to see Kermit the Frog, Julius the Paul Frank monkey, Sonic the Hedgehog, Buzz Lightyear et al. at our own pace. Inflation takes place from 3 to 10pm. Arrive later in the evening, when the gigantic characters have taken shape; the crowds are at their peak, so you can also show off the famed New York sidewalk shuffle. Enter at W 79th St at Columbus Ave.

Very Cool, I've always loved Time out New York Magazine. I finally got to sign up.

Traditionally it is the day for family uniting together and having special dinner as celebration; celebration for special cause that is for giving thanks to god and family for what we have. So, it is a special day which is celebrated in USA and Canada. But I wish if we have that special day to thank, because it is really so adorable to thank God and family. All over the world should celebrate this special day. We wish you all Happy Thanks Giving Day.
