I am definitely the Martha May out of my friend group when it comes to the holidays – and if you don’t know who this iconic character is… you have some serious Christmas binge watching to get onto pronto!
There’s nothing like the holidays in New York City. It’s as magical as they portray in the movies. From Saks Fifth Avenue’s fabulous window designs and extravagant light show to just across the street, where the Rockefeller Tree stands 75ft tall. Stroll down Fifth Avenue for some window shopping (or for a treat yourself moment) and look in awe at the designer stores decorated in lights, wreaths and over the top decor.
Don’t forget about Bloomingdales windows on 59th street and if your weary about crowds by Rockefeller Center don’t worry! There are plenty of Christmas trees all over Manhattan for a great photo op. Walk by 6th avenue to see some gigantic candy canes, nutcrackers and red ornaments and make your way down to Bryant Park’s Winter Village for some (free) iceskating and a hot coco at The Lodge Deck.
The holiday season doesn’t end for me until the beginning of January mostly because my Christmas decorations are still up, Hallmark Christmas movies are still playing until the end of the year and I’m still eating an unhealthy amount of chocolate chip cookies in a different pair of holiday pyjamas every day.
I hope everyone had a magical Christmas and most of all had their loved ones safe and close by. And if you haven’t visited any of the holiday installments you can until January 3rd, 2021!
