Meredith Viera Gets Teary-Eyed For Santa

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Today show host Meredith Vieira is getting teary-eyed this holiday season – over Santa Claus!

That’s because Vieira is co-hosting the live broadcast of Macy’s 81st Annual Thanksgiving Day Parade next Thursday (Nov. 22) on NBC, and admits that whenever she sees jolly ol’ St. Nick at the parade, her waterworks start to flow.

Vieira says, “I still cry when I see Santa marching down Herald Square! I remember watching the parade religiously as a little kid and being completely mesmerized. And as an adult, all of my kid emotions come back, and it’s still very exciting! The parade is an institution. It’s a huge part of New York City’s history.”

And while this year is only Vieira’s second time hosting the Thanksgiving spectacular alongside her Today co-star Matt Lauer, Vieira will have no time to get the jolly jitters.

Vieira explains, “Like last year, I’ll be nervous until the moment we’re on live. The parade goes by so quickly and with such precision, that you have to stay on top of what’s happening. I can’t get too nervous!”
