NEW YORK (AP) - Today is a day of turkey, stuffing, stuffing yourself and shopping.
Macy's, Wal-Mart, Kmart, Target and Sears are some of the stores that are open for at least part of the day today, as many retailers try to get a jump on Black Friday.
And this morning, Thomas the Tank Engine, Paddington bear and the Red Mighty take to the streets of midtown Manhattan for the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
They're some of the newest giant balloons.
