America’s two days out from Thanksgiving, which means Americans everywhere are a) mentally checking out from work, b) preparing their Thanksgiving recipe rundown and c) getting ready to observe the spectacle that is the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

I know that the British think Thanksgiving is “another silly holiday they don’t understand,” to quote Emma Keller, but I had to ask: are parades themselves a big deal in the UK? 


Short answer: sort of. Long answer: in the video above. 

Advantage: US, because our parades come with a hefty helping of non-royal pop culture
