Christmas in New York

What it’s like to spend Christmas in New York? That’s one question I had in mind before finally deciding to spend my three weeks holidays. Well, it was actually an easy decision to do, to choose New York, instead of the sand, sun and sea in the Caribbean. I can’t afford to go in the tropics. LOL… Whereas, going to New York is cheaper for me because I had enough aeroplan miles to redeem and I have a fabulous friend who offered to let me stay in his apartment for the whole trip.

But anyway, Christmas in New York isn’t really something I expected it to be. But, for those with cash to burn, spending Christmas in the city that never sleeps is a paradise of shopping. There are unbelievable Christmas Sale everywhere and boy, the streets are unbelievably crowded, too! The Christmas lights aren’t that impressive (Believe me, I’ve seen grander and better than the ones here). However, I love the window displays in Saks Fifth (Fairytale theme) and Bergdorf Goodman (The Arts theme). I’m disappointed that there’s no Christmas spirit in Times Square. No fabulous lights, dazzling Christmas trees, snowflakes, etc…

In fairness to New York, I haven’t explored a lot of places yet. Since I arrived here on Sunday, it’s been foggy and rainy. In other words, it’s not a good weather for camwhoring around. The photos below are the ones I managed to take around.

Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays, everyone!
