Maybe Christmas in New York City would be lovely. Christmas in New York City would not be a lazy Christmas though. My fantasy of a New York City Christmas would require lots of money so I could shop to my heart’s content and see shows and concerts and museum exhibits. Everywhere I walked I would expect to see my beloved twinkle lights in great profusion and many other creative light displays. Elegance would be welcome also because I would expect to see the work of decorators in New York City who are employed for their tasteful talents. Eating out would also be a part of the wonderful experience of a NYC Christmas. I’m not sure if Hurricane Sandy has placed limitations on both the spirit and the extravagance of the Christmas displays in NYC this year, but I am certain there is still plenty of that traditional sparkle which we expect from the Big Apple.
