Did you ever wonder what it feels like to take a walk in the middle of the streets, being surrounded
by amazing lights that shine so brightly everywhere, tons of children that just can’t wait for their
favorite human being to visit their houses and some of the most beautiful Christmas classics songs
being played on the radio?
Well, if the answer is yes, prepare yourself because you’re going to take a ride into one of the most iconic cities in which to spend the holidays. Called “the city that never sleeps”, New York City welcomes millions of tourists each year, especially in the Christmas period. Why? The answer is simple: everything around you will feel joyful. There’s something about “The Big Apple” that induces you to fall in love with it, maybe it’s because of the snow, maybe it’s because of the Santas giving children (and adults as well) some candies and letters that evokes inside of you a sense of well-being that fills your heart.
But let’s move on to some unmissable places that will make your Christmas holiday unforgettable. You wouldn’t want to miss the first lighting of the Rockefeller Center on the 4th of December even because, every year, the ceremony gives the stage to some incredible performances by incredible singers: John Legend, Gwen Stefani and of course the queen of Christmas, Ms. Mariah Carey.
Don’t worry if you aren’t able to attend it, the famous tree will be lit until the 7th of January and, on Christmas day, it will be lit for a full 24 hours.
During your stay, if you want to have some real fun, you can skate at Bryant Park! Its 17,000-square-foot ice-skating rink that’s free to use (only if you bring your own skates, so be prepared) is the highlight, while about 60 shopping and food kiosks are there to satisfy your eccentric desires.
Last but definitely not the least, if you want to be overwhelmed by the warmth of New Yorkers (and not only), New Year’s Eve in Time Square is one of the experiences that will definitely change your life. Witness incredible live performances and the drop of the famous Time Square New Year’s Eve Ball, which will be raised at 6.00 pm. Spend the night with people all around the globe, sip some hot tea to keep you warm and just enjoy what others call “the magical night”! Why? Because in that very specific moment, when the clock rings in the new year, something magical happens: we feel like we can do everything we want, we feel like our dream can actually become true. We feel strangely alive, because at New Year’s Eve we can be whoever we want, we can be all united for once!
