St. Louis, Missouri was host to the first parade for Iraq War Veterans on Saturday. An estimated 100,000 people lined the streets to welcome home about 600 veterans who marched through downtown to cheering and flag-waving from supporters.
This is how the city of Graz, Austria kicks off its Christmas season. With a parade of TERRIFYING HELLSPAWN warning children not to be naughty or the demon Krampus will take them away. Somehow I feel this is a more effective way to keep kids in line than coal in their stockings.
