Happy Holidays! Welcome to the ITM Advent Calendar. Each day from now until Christmas, ITM will feature a festive photo for you to enjoy (save, share, add as a wallpaper for your mobile device, etc.).
Advent calendars have been used celebrate the season since the 1700’s. Traditional versions included doors or windows with dates leading up to Christmas. Behind each was a surprise. These varied from smaller parts to a larger image, candies or trinkets. In Denmark, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden, a daily Yule calendar television show is aired up until Christmas Eve.
Today’s image depicts one of the many giant balloons from Universal Orlando’s holiday celebration of year’s past. Part of the Macy’s Holiday parade, this iconic red star helps extend the traditional Thanksgiving parade throughout the holiday season.
Tune in tomorrow (and every day until Christmas) for a new seasonal surprise!
