Christmas in The Big City (and the Little Town)

They lit the tree in NYC tonight (sigh)...
As regular readers of my blog know, we lived in New York for many years... right outside of New York City. For the last few years there, I worked in The City... and at Rockefeller Center (which is a whole series of buildings above and below the Square where The Tree stands.

Other than the people that we called friends, there is not a lot I miss about New York or the City... but I do miss Christmas in NYC...

There is just no large city in the U.S. that does Christmas any better than New York City!

So if you have a hankering to visit The Big City -- go around Christmas time! Oh, and go for tea in the diningroom at Saks Fifth Avenue -- it has the best view of The Tree and the skating rink and the Angels... and, yes, go see the Radio City Christmas Show with the Rockettes... be sure to drop by Cartier's windows, the Saks 5th and Macy's windows... of course, St. Patrick's Cathedral... and the topiary dinosaurs at the Museum of Natural History... Yup.. Christmas in the Big, Big City...
And, of course, if you're in Arizona, and you want to enjoy Christmastime in a small town, come visit Prescott -- "Arizona's Christmas City"... for a taste of Christmas in the Pines... The parade is this Saturday and then the whole town square and the Court House will be lit Saturday evening (see below for pictures of the Courthouse!)... and you can visit the World's Largest Gingerbread Village in the lobby of the Conference Center on your way into downtown... It is a special time in a very special place. It's where Christmas is cool!

NYC is wonderful with the Christmas decorations, isn't it? I'm glad you mentioned St. Patrick's cathedral. My husband and I were blown away by its beauty and majesty. It was the first time either of us had been there.
