Traffic! Bah humbug!
Actually, not bah humbug. Even ridunkulous traffic cannot dampen my Christmas spirit when I'm en route to New York City.
Well, maybe a little, but not completely. And you people who commute in and out of here every.single.day, well bless your hearts.
We met at a restaurant near Madison Square Garden called Pennsylvania 6. It was hopping! Our friends have a son living in the city so he joined us too, for a fun night of gabbing and celebrating his mom's birthday.
Their 30th wedding anniversary is also this weekend, and I think we can all agree NYC is a grand place for marking and celebrating life's milestones.
After dinner we walked about 20 blocks in the icy cold air, but hey it's New York at Christmastime, and we needed to see the tree. Plus hubs and I never leave the city without a stop in Times Square, since that's the law.
Our law, but one we never break.
We got down to the tree about 11 PM, and here's a helpful tip for all you tourists...visit the tree at 11 PM in 30 degree temps, and you'll find it's not wall to wall people at that hour or degree.
It's not no-people, but definitely a smaller crowd.
The tree is just beautiful.
Rockefeller Plaza in December is one of my favorite places on earth.
I can see how people fall in love in New York City at Christmastime.
