15 Things to Do in New York City During Christmas Time

Every season in New York City has its unique flair.  But Christmas is definitely the most exhilarating.  The crisp chill in the air.  The sparkling lights and holiday decor. If you’ve never been, you must visit NYC just once during this time of year.  The things on this list are my favorites–especially the store windows, decor and markets.
