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 Christmas tree at Rockefeller Plaza. Even though I’ve seen it so many times, it’s always just as magical as it is in all the movies!
My husband and I by the tree. It was a freezing cold day, and it started snowing really hard a little while after we took the picture, but it made the day just that much more Christmassy!

This is always the only time I ever wish I could skate!

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!
The Empire State building lit up in red and green at night!
I hope you enjoyed the little tour of the city at Christmastime, and hope you enjoyed whatever you did for Christmas too!

    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 🙂
