Newscast Media HOUSTON—On Thanksgiving day, we are thankful for our good fortune, and simple pleasures in life that we take for granted. We also use the bad events in our lives as lessons from which to learn. Such events refine and make us sharper, but also mold us into more compassionate human beings.


Americans will be celebrating this Thursday across the nation with the traditional turkey meal as they join friends and loved ones they usually see one or twice a year during the holiday season, together with those they see on a regular basis.


This year's Thanksgiving parade is once again sponsored by H-E-B, one of the largest grocery store chains, with live performances from local Houstonians. Below are some of the highlights of the events that took place at the special parade in downtown Houston.
