"You always pass failure on your way to success." - Mickey Rooney
Every year, the first Sunday after Thanksgiving is reserved for the Hollywood Christmas Parade. Where the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade ends with Santa Claus, the Hollywood Christmas Parade comes roaring out the gate pulling no punches on its affiliation with the famous jolly fat man (though he still makes his appearance at the end of the parade). The parade began in 1928, but it wasn't until 2002's disastrous NBC primetime special that the world at large stood up and took notice of it. Today, the parade marches on and has gained traction in Los Angeles' Filipino-American community. This has resulted in the parade being broadcast internationally, airing on Lifestyle in the Philippines.
