I start looking forward to the next Christmas from December 27! It’s the most wonderful time of the year for me. There are several reasons why I love Christmas. It doesn’t mean we are often ready and I also understand it is just a one day celebration but the trick is to not worry about anything. Instead of waiting to the 25th we start celebrating from the 1st of December. It is all about the build up to the D-Day. The anticipation, the tease from hearing jingle bells on the radio on your way to work. It’s the excitement from seeing the trees light up as you drive in the cold winter nights. It’s the chill in the air yet you feel so warm in your heart. It’s the little things.
We started off December the first by first spending a cozy morning eating scrambled eggs and drinking coco by the Christmas tree. If we were still in England we would have been eating minced pie in the morning.
Then we took Lyft to Bloomingdales on 57th street Manhattan. First stop was the Ralph Lauren Store where you can skate and enjoy a courtesy cup of hot chocolate. Free.
You can go in with them or sit in the Ralph cafe enjoying your drink while they skate.
Next it was time to go visit Santa on the 6th floor.
You can get a professional photo for $21 or use your mobile phone. We did both.
Then we played with the giant little brown bag and teddy.
When you are feeling tired, take the elevator to the 8th floor to the gingerbread house which also has a restaurant along the way.
Finished the day on a high any ready for the second day of Christmas. Who knows what that would bring, whatever it is, I’m excited and looking forward to it!
