Re: Why I'm creating "Parade Talk" Blog

Thank you, Tiff!
I do understand that documentaries could be more informative - cause that's probably their whole point, but my curiosity was more about how accurate is the fiction.

Also about curiosity - while I definitely am, I guess, the subscribers of the network would also appreciate if you ever decide to share any recommendations on reading about parades, especially if there are sources considering parades per se, as a phenomenon, not just this or that particular tradition.
