It's October 5th and that means it's my day to blog at the Heroes, Heroines and History blog. Stereograph, glass lantern slide, greeting card, magazine cover, and photographs from the late 19th to early 20th centuries.

Have you ever been to a huge holiday parade? How about watching the Toronto Santa Claus Parade, or Macy's Thanksgiving Parade on TV?
Today, my Inkwell Inspirations post is about Historic Santa Claus and Thanksgiving Parades and I've included lots of old photos, footage, and facts.

Of course, this is merely another tool I'm using to promote my A Cup of Christmas Cheer story, Riding on A Christmas Wish since it's set in Keswick, York Ontario, within an hour's drive of where the historic Eaton's Santa Claus Parade began. But I've included some real interesting stuff. I hope you enjoy your nostalgic trip back in time.
