Christmas Lights in New York City

Dear friends, I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season! As promised, I am back with a few festive photos. There is nothing like Christmas time in New York City. It is an ongoing display of lights and decorations no matter where you walk around. Here I was at Bryant Park where tourists and New Yorkers alike love to ice skate under the Christmas tree.

This is a street shot I took on Park Avenue. Just about every street is lined up with trees adorned with golden lights. I especially love to take pictures at night time so you can see the reflections and all the lights in the skyscrapers as well.

Here I was at Rockefeller Center where the famous and tallest Christmas tree is lit up in multi-colors surrounded by angels. It truly is a magical place this time of year. People from all over come visit.

This year right across from the tree at Rockefeller center they had an amazing light show. The colors kept changing to the tune of Christmas music, something really spectacular to see in person. 

Around the corner from Rockefeller Center, I decided to stop by St. Patrick's Cathedral. It's so peaceful to be inside this beautiful Church full of light and hope. I lit a candle for world peace, love and good health for family and friends. 

Here I was walking on Fifth Avenue and took a picture of the Empire State Building which is lit up in red and green at Christmas time. I'm not sure how city lights ended up forming stars but it was cool!

And lastly, given that the holiday season usually includes lots of sweets, I thought I would leave you with this huge gingerbread house I photographed at a New York restaurant. I simply love it! I hope you enjoyed a little tour of New York City and I wish you all Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and a wonderful, healthy and prosperous New Year! Thanks for being here and your continued support. xo
