On the Sunday night after Thanksgiving, a parade ran down Hollywood Boulevard, as it had many Thanksgiving weekends before that. This year, and in some other years past, it was called the Hollywood Christmas Parade, but growing up here I knew it as the Santa Claus Lane Parade. Gene Autry, the singing cowboy and media mini-magnate, wrote a song about it: "Here Comes Santa Claus (Right Down Santa Claus Lane)." You can see it, time-shifted on television tonight, and again on Christmas Eve, in an edited program with additional musical performances -- shot pre-parade and at the Grove's Christmas tree lighting -- airing nationally on MyNetwork as "The 2009 Hollywood Christmas Parade/Live Positively Presented by Coca-Cola."

EVENTS Laura McKenzie and ex-"Chip" Erik Estrada host the 81st annual Hollywood Christmas Parade, which features actor Joe Mantegna as grand marshal. The parade – and its special, red-suited guest of honor – travels a U-shaped route from Hollywood Blvd. at Orange up to Vine and back on Sunset Boulevard, which might make for a few traffic headaches, but it all comes as part of the magic of the season. Sun., 6 p.m. Grandstand seats: $35. Info: 866-727-2331 or http://www.thehollywoodchristmasparade.com.

For Michelle Sawers, the bottom line Sunday night was that no matter what, she and her family got to watch a holiday parade along Hollywood Boulevard. "It's a family tradition," said Sawers, who was surrounded by her four young children and her father near North Cherokee Avenue. "It's on the agenda every year. It's the kickoff to our Christmas season."
