Christmas in NYC

I can't believe this is my third Christmas in NYC. NYC is my favorite city in the country. This is why I worked so hard for the opportunity to move up here. NYC becomes more magical during the holiday season. The city does a great job representing all the cultures and their holiday seasons and that's one of the amazing parts of NYC is all the different cultures I've learned about.

Christmas is my favorite time of the year, so of course I take advantage of all that the city has to offer during the Christmas season. When people think of Christmas time in NYC they automatically think of Rockefeller Center with the Christmas tree and Sak's fifth avenue. While these things are great, especially for first time in NYC during the holiday season, the city has so much more to offer. Below I've listed some of my favorite NYC Christmas activities and places to visit. I hope y'all get the chance to see them!
