This year I am in the Hollywood Christmas Parade and it is a great holiday celebration.  The parade is an American tradition and this is the 81st year.  I have been in the parade many times.  My dear friends Laura McKenzie and Erik Estrada are the hosts of the parade and Joe Mantegna is the Grand Marshal.  Many celebrities, bands, floats and giant balloons are on hand to  entertain everyone.  And, of course Santa Claus makes a special appearance and I was able to get a picture with him!
