The vast majority of families in the United States celebrate Thanksgiving, which is a state and federal holiday. Many families celebrate together with a big meal, while other people prefer to spend the time with their friends, while others just like to watch the traditional Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade, which you can watch on FuboTV (free trial) on Thursday at 9 AM (ET).
