The National Football League (NFL) on Thanksgiving Day is a traditional series of games played during the Thanksgiving holiday in the USA. Currently, three NFL games are played every Thanksgiving.

The morning of Thanksgiving Day all eyes turn to Manhattan and the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, an annual pageant of giant balloons, floats, cheerleaders, clowns, marching bands, Broadway shows and celebs. The parade begins at 9am and finishes three hours later at noon.

Black Friday is the Friday following Thanksgiving Day in the USA, often regarded as the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. In recent years, most major retailers have opened very early and offered promotional  sales to kick off the holiday shopping season.
