Having spent the festive season and Christmas more specifically on a beach for the last 25 years, I am really looking forward to a white one this year. What better place to experience the magic of Christmas other than New York City itself. I have heard that it is a once in a lifetime experience; not to be missed. Technically we will spend Christmas Day in Los Angeles but we definitely cannot wait to celebrate the festivities in New York as well.
Ice skating in central park, taking pictures with the big tree, watching the lights and drinking hot cocoa in Santa Land are just some of the things I am planning on doing. Finding a dressed up Santa Clause waving his jingle bell asking for donations is on the top of my list too. I grew up with those images from famous Christmas movies and cannot wait to see it in reality, no matter how cliche it might be.
Have you spent Christmas Day in Los Angeles? I can only imagine that it might be very different to New York or is it the same? Let us know what we should not miss.
