The City Lights are Shining Bright!
Since this is my first Christmas holiday not going home to Oregon, I decided that I needed to make it extra festive, so I convinced Erik to come with me to see Radio City Christmas Spectacular. It was actually down to seeing the Christmas Spectactular or the Nutcracker, but in order to really see ballet, you have to sit pretty close and good tickets to see the Nutcracker were a little out of our price range. I also had never seen the Radio City Christmas Spectacular – starring the Rockettes – and I was really excited to see something unique to the New York holiday experience.
The Christmas Spectacular was amazing. I could not have asked for a better show. The bright lights, the colors, the dancing, the music. It really was spectacular. If you’re ever in New York and want to see something truly New York at the holidays, I encourage you to get thee to the ticket office and see the Radio City Christmas Spectacular!
After we were finished, we decided that since we were in the neighborhood, we would go visit the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree and see the Christmas lights. It was freezing outside, and it was very late, so we didn’t have much time to snap pictures before they turned out all the lights (they turn off the lights around 11:30 p.m., fyi!).
It’s such a beautiful time of year with all the colorful Christmas lights! I hope you’re getting out and enjoying some of the holiday cheer in your neighborhood. Happy holidays!
