By this time tomorrow, most of us in the U.S. will be on our Thanksgiving holiday break. But of course, this will be a very unusual Thanksgiving, with people told to stay home and limit contact with people outside their own households.
Many traditions will continue, but with a twist. New York will still have a parade, but one that will cover just one block, with no crowds and pre-taped performances.
Utility vehicles are pulling balloons, rather than hundreds of volunteers, and those balloons are being filmed in advance and dropped into the official TV coverage.
In Detroit, there are still new floats making their debut in the Thanksgiving parade. Up until early November, you could even visit The Parade Co. to see artists sculpting figures out of expanded polystyrene. But the parade itself will be limited to just a few blocks, and with no crowds allowed to view it. Just TV cameras.
One thing that will probably still be true this year? The Detroit Lions will be a disappointment.
