What gets you in the Christmas spirit this time of year? Singing your favorite carols? Baking? That awesome Mannheim Steamroller album you used to dance around the house to?
I was lucky enough to experience New York City for the first time this past weekend. While the city is always incredible to take in, I think we saw it at the best time of year. I can’t say that I’ve seen another city get in to the Christmas spirit quite the same way that New York does!
I knew about the tree at Rockefeller Center, but what I did not know about before my visit were the incredible window displays. All down 5th Avenue, Broadway, and Madison, retailers create magical scenes in their shop windows.
From classic to whimsical, they all reach deep in to your heart to make you remember why this time of year is so wondrous. I have included a link ( http://www.essential-new-york-city-guide.com/christmas-windows.html ) that shows off some of the highlights, and I encourage anyone who is able to go see them in person to fully engage yourself in the Christmas spirit.
