What happened to the Rose Parade??
For as long as I remember, the Rose Parade is plastered over all major TV networks starting at 8 am on New Years day. Today, not a peep. Its not on the TV listing, or in the local newspaper tv listing. Is it still raining down there?

Yes, so as not to interfere with the comings and goings at the churches along the route. :-)

Re: What happened to the Rose Parade??
Why are the Tournament celebrations sometimes held on January 2?

The Tournament of Roses is a tradition full of traditions, one of which is our “Never on Sunday” policy. In 1893, officials decided to move the parade to Monday, January 2 to avoid frightening horses tethered outside local churches and thus interfering with worship services. As a result of this reverent gesture, speculation abounds as to the rare instances of rainfall on New Year’s Day (only nine times in Rose Parade history), prompting some to ask the Tournament about its special pact with a “friend upstairs.” Also as a result of this tradition, other collegiate bowl organizations have instituted similar procedures. The upcoming Rose Parade is on Monday, January 2, 2006 in observance of the Never on Sunday tradition.
