But unlike millions of Americans, Tom will be busy with football practice for most of Thanksgiving and will only be able to spend a few hours with his family.

‘Thanksgiving, there’s a lot to be thankful for, but you only get four hours to enjoy it,’ he said. ‘Practice usually ends at about 1 or 2. You eat about 3:30, then you’re getting ready for next day of practice. Same with Christmas.’

This year’s 95th annual parade will feature 15 giant character balloons, 28 floats, 36 novelty and heritage inflatables, more than 800 clowns, 10 marching bands and nine performance groups and the ever-popular Santa Claus.

Parade rehearsals for performances were underway on Tuesday. NYC residents and tourists watched the pre-parade balloon inflation from noon to 6pm.

The parade is set to broadcast Thursday morning on NBC from 9am to 12pm with hosts Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kotb and Al Roker.

‘For our 95th celebration, Macy’s has created a spectacle to remember featuring a dazzling array of high-flying balloons, animated floats and incredible performers,’ Will Coss, the executive producer of the parade, said in a statement.

‘We can’t wait to help New York City and the nation kick-off the holiday season with the return of this cherished tradition.’

This year’s upcoming parade comes after the downsizing of last year’s which had cut thousands of participants, limited the route to one block, and of course requested spectators to watch the anticipated holiday tradition solely on their television screens.

With the increase in adult vaccination rates, everything has mostly returned to normal with the exception of children under 12 being able to participate from the parade as they have just been made eligible to receive the shot.
