A New York Christmas

It has always always ALWAYS been a dream of mine to see the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center, and it just so happened that Nicolas and I were spending a night in New York City on our way to Pennsylvania for the holidays. Despite our jet lag and the below-freezing temps, Nicolas was determined to make sure that I saw the tree. We woke up early in the morning and had an amazing breakfast at the Tick Tock Diner (highly recommend). We bundled up and took in all the beautiful sights there are to see in New York during the holiday season. When we finally reached Rockefeller Center, I nearly cried! The tree was so beautiful – just like the movies (i.e. ELF 🙂 ). We passed the Empire State Building on our way to Penn Station. My fingers were literally frozen, so I kept the photo-taking to a minimum. 🙂


Hope you enjoyed this little holiday post! I can’t believe Christmas is only a week away!

    I visited New York in December a few years ago and it was like a dream come true to see the Christmas tree, so I do know how exciting is to fulfil your dreams. Have a wonderful Christmas with your lovely family.

    Yay! Welcome home. Glad you got to see NYC at Christmas. Bill has persuaded us to agree to go for New Year’s Eve. 5 out of 7 of us want to go. I’m not one of them. Crowds and cold…..NOT my thing. Pray for me 😉
    Merry Christmas, Madison.

    My “stats” were wrong on my last comment….only 2 out of 7 of us want to go (big Bill and Mary). The rest of us think they’re crazy.

      Oh my goodness! I am not sure if I could handle that either! Merry Christmas to you, too 🙂
