So, I'm officially done with the semester! Hooray! In order to celebrate, my mother and I headed into the city to do a bunch of touristy "Christmas in New York" things. Even though I've lived in New York City my whole life, I haven't been down to the Rockefeller Center tree since I was quite little. We went to Saks, Tiffany&Co, and Bergdorf Goodman to look at the whimsical Christmas window displays, went to Rockefeller Center, and explored the Christmas markets in Bryant Park. I'm not big on crowds, but my Christmas delight outweighed any sort of bitterness I could feel. Christmas! So, below are some of my favorite pictures from the day, and maybe some captions if I feel like adding them. Be warned, there are roughly eight million photos in this post.
Christmas Question of the Day: What's your favorite holiday tradition? In my family, every year we buy someone underwear to embarrass them. The person is never let in on it until they open it, and generally everyone laughs at their expense and gets a real kick out of it. Speaking of which, I haven't gotten "the underwear" in years now. Oh no!
Then, we stopped at Tiffany&Co, sort of by accident. They had the most adorable display though. Christmas Carousel theme!
Saks had a little story to go along with their window display. It had something to do with bubbles, but I kept forgetting to read the little snippets of the tale, mostly because I was distracted by all the pretty things
Then, twas on to Rockefeller Center! Somehow, we found this gigantic tree
This is what happens when my mom takes a picture of me with the large tree:

And the lovely Bryant Park tree. I may have liked this one more than the Rockefeller Center tree. Whoops!
