MACY’S PARADE

In 1924, the first Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade was held. It was a festive event that featured floats, bands, animals and Santa Claus, and attracted over 250,000 spectators in New York City.

Nerdy Fact: The parade was suspended from 1942 to 1944 due to World War II, and the rubber used for the balloons was donated to the military.

HUSH

In 2002, the mysterious and menacing Batman villain Hush first made his appearance in Batman #609. Hush is a supervillain who was once a childhood friend of Bruce Wayne. He wrapped his face in bandages to conceal his identity and orchestrated a complex plot to destroy Batman physically and emotionally, which included manipulating Batman’s rogue’s gallery.
