Yes, the rumours are true: Christmas in New York City is incredible - crazy! - but incredible. Despite the manic crowds you have to battle from time to time (cities, eh), the magic of Christmas really kisses NYC all over it's pretty concrete face at this time of year.
At the start of the month we headed to the Radio City Music Hall for the Christmas Spectacular (more on that later) and couldn't help but notice the Christmas decorations on 6th Avenue - they are fantastic! And so big! I especially loved the giant Nutcrackers and toy town train. Despite my lack of festive spirit this year, seeing these definitely made me feel a little bit Christmassy.
