A New York City Christmas

Posted on December 29, 2012
Hi, Everyone! I wanted to share some pictures of our Christmas with you today! New York City is one of my favorite places at Christmastime. With its beautiful lights and decorations, the big tree at Rockefeller Plaza and festive shop window displays, there’s just no place like it! My husband surprised me with tickets to see the Rockettes’ Christmas Spectacular for Christmas, and I was so excited because I’ve always wanted to see them! It was the 85th anniversary of the show, and it really was spectacular! We had a great day in the city, walking around as it began to snow, going to see the Rockettes at Radio City, going to see the big Christmas tree, walking by all the beautiful and festive window displays, eating some good food and stopping at Magnolia Bakery, and just spending the day together!

The beautiful interior of Radio City. I absolutely loved the Christmas Spectacular show! I loved all the dancing, singing, acting, the 3D additions to the show, and how it told the story of a New York City Christmas! It was one of my favorite Christmas presents this year!

I always love the creative window displays that department stores come up with at Christmastime! These window displays at Macy’s were some of the most beautiful I have ever seen! All the elements of the displays moved and described Christmas in the city!

    So happy I found this via pinterest! We are taking a girl’s trip to NYC early this December and have never been before. Any suggestions on must do items? Also, random, but what would you recommend as the best shoes for walking and touring the city during the winter? Thanks for advice 🙂
