NEW YORK, NEW YORK
With Halloween now over, I've already seen lots of stores putting up Christmas decorations! Macy's has been totally decked out in holiday cheer. It's actually so strange for me to be seeing Christmas decor in Southern California... as much as I love the sun here, it just doesn't feel right to have Christmas AND warm weather - it's always been one or the other in Toronto!
These photos are actually from last year's trip to NYC - for the past two years, I've been in NYC every holiday season to visit The Boy and his family. I don't really know what it is, but there's always something magical about being in NYC for the holidays... all the city lights, the Christmas store displays, the skating rinks, people milling about... somehow, it just feels right. It doesn't hurt that NYC winters aren't as cold as Toronto ones!
I'm currently in the midst of planning my winter travel route... if all goes well, I'll be flying from Vancouver > Toronto > NYC > Vancouver. What are your plans for this holiday season?
