We decided for one night to take a break from packing, holiday baking, and sweating the small stuff to walk around our beautiful city and take in all of the holiday sights.
So we invite you to sit back and enjoy the view...live from New York!
Saks Fifth Avenue Snowflake Spectacle: 50 unique snowflakes with illumination set to holiday music.

This year's Rockefeller tree came from Connecticut, measures 76 feet tall, is 50 years old, and after the season, will be used to build a Habitat for Humanity house in its hometown state (CT).

Since its first show in 1933, millions have since seen various versions - all of which included The Rockettes.
Lincoln Center, home of The Nutcracker ballet, also features a new fountain.
The fountain (which we saw earlier in the fall when it first opened) was designed by the same firm which designed the famous Bellagio fountains in Las Vegas. Though smaller and not set to music, this water spectacle is very calming - almost like those spa water fountains, but on a grander scale.
