Christmastime in the city

I’m a city girl, through and through, and that’s never more true than at the holidays. My favorite Christmas memories as a little girl growing up in Cleveland are of going to Tower City to pick out gifts for family members. (No surprise that little Leigh Anne was also a shopaholic). In Dallas, I’d get a kick out of seeing the Christmas decorations in fancy nearby suburbs and at the Galleria. My favorite holiday song is Silver Bells: city sidewalks, busy sidewalks, dressed in holiday style…

New York City, of course, blows those previous experiences completely out of the water. This city is iconic for its holiday decorations. As someone who loves cities and loves Christmas: It’s basically heaven. Last week I took some time to wander the streets – Silver Bells blaring in my headphones, of course – and take it all in. Here are some of the highlights:


Window displays at Macy’s


My favorite display, Louis Vuitton: Not the most festive, perhaps, but my favorite color combination



Macy’s entrance on 34th Street


Bryant Park skating rink and Christmas tree


Larger-than-life ornaments on Sixth Avenue


Radio City Music Hall in the background


Perhaps the most famous tree in the world: Rockefeller Plaza


Festive windows at Saks Fifth Avenue

Despite the cold, I have to admit: This season in New York City is absolutely incredible.
