Happy Holidays!

Mike and me in Rockefeller Center

There’s something about the holidays that makes you feel like a tourist in your own town. Everyone seems friendlier, the storefronts all look new and festive, and there’s excitement in the air. As much as I want to be a jaded New Yorker, I still get giddy when I see the tree at Rockefeller Center. So on this fine, upcoming weekend when all the holidays collide, go outside and do something a tourist would do. It will make you appreciate where you live and it will get you in the holiday spirit. And if you you live in a town that doesn’t have many attractions here are some suggestions:

  1. Get some hot chocolate – whipped cream is a must.
  2. Go ice skating – come on every town has a rink. Or at least a neighboring town has a rink.
  3. Go on a midnight walk.
  4. Find the street that is known for their Christmas lights and take a picture in front of each house.
  5. Deliver homemade cookies to all of your friends.

But then again it’s always nice to stay at home with your loved ones, and drink hot apple cider:

  1. Love the pictures! Someday I want to see the big tree in NYC. I’m heading to Erie, Pa and I definitely have plans to have hot chocolate at my favorite chocolate shop. We like doing a late night walk on Christmas Eve too, it feels magical. I’m a little bummed the forecast doesn’t have any snow though. Happy holidays!
