Did the hippie wannabes have a float? You know, one that has women covered in body hair, men with dreads and a plume of patchouli smoke coming from the float.

Maybe the folks in Asheville want everyone to have a happy holiday no matter what their religious beliefs. The holidays are not about just one religion. Many religions have celebrations during December - and just before - and just after. Why not let everyone feel welcome?

It's a "Merchant" Parade first and then a "Holiday" parade. It begins before Thanksgiving and covers Hanukkah, Muharram, Ashura, Christmas, Kwanzaa and New Year's Day.

And if you are really bored WLOS will braodcast it again on Thanksgiving morning.
