On The Second Day Of The Year,

2017 Edition in Pasadena

 

Happy January 2!   Happy New Year.  

 

Have you begun to wonder -- how long will I need to keep wishing people Happy New Year?

 

Well, there was a special report from CNN in 2013 that offered an opinion that you can read here.

 

But today, in Pasadena, California...you have the opportunity to truly say Happy New Year.

 

The annual Tournament of Roses Parade will begin at 8AM local time with Rose Bowl Game later this afternoon.   I won’t go into the reasons why it's today and not yesterday...again...okay here’s another link but the parade and football game are never played on Sundays so when that occurs….Monday becomes the kinda official start of the year in Pasadena.  And that’s true this year...in 2017.   

 

In the 128 years of the parade, this has occurred fourteen other times(before this year the most recent time was in 2012).   We’ve also had some rain recently but the skies are predicted to be clear.    It has rained ten times on the Rose Parade. I remember the last time in 2006 but I wasn't around in the other years: 1895, 1899, 1906, 1910, 1916, 1922, 1934, 1937 and 1955.   

 

So however you are spending this second day of 2017….Happy New Year….yeah, yeah...I know I wished it yesterday too.  I promise I’ll stop….sometime this week.

I watched part of the Rose Parade this morning.  It has been a tradition since I was a kid!  I loved the float with the surfing pooches!

I should add that I watched it on television.  I've never seen the parade in person, but would love to one day!

not only a great parade, the Rose Bowl game was awesome this year. Maybe the best game of the bowl season.

Thank you very much for stopping by and your comments.  The parade is over, an exciting game at the Rose Bowl yesterday and now it's Happy Third Day of 2017.   In the next couple of days I will be posting photos of the some of the floats.

Happy New Year Michael..it just feels good to wish a happy year, I don't know if I'm ready to stop saying it yet...
If it wasn't for you, I wouldn't have known the theme for South Pasadena's float.."Never Give Up". I know have it on top of my vision board, thank you! I did watch most of the parade, truly enjoyed it.

Happy New Year!

"Never Give Up" is such an appropriate theme not just for a Rose Parade float but for life.  I agree, Beth Atalay.

As do you Noah Seidenberg.

Michael, I've been  on the search for something other than "change", which keeps popping up as the impending focus of 2017--as banal as that may seem. Never Give Up--I may have to try that hat on for size.

Take as long as you like to say Happy New Year. Do it in July just to screw with peoples' heads! (Why not? They have Christmas in July in some places...)

You're right, Gayle Rich-Boxman Fishhawk Lake Realtor (503)755-2905 - there is something kinda special about those "Christmas in July" moments that we can create.

Loved the parade and thought of you - of course, it was in PASADENA!  I'm looking forward to seeing your photos from the parade!  I loved the dog-boarding one - heaviest float ever!  How cool was that one?
