Christmastime in the City (31 Days of Christmas)

31dayslogoI love living in NYC, especially during the holidays. There is all kinds of magic in the air. There’s the Macy’s Thanksgiving parade, lighting of the tree at Rockefeller Center, the decorations in Macy’s in Time Square.  Spending time with my family is super important to me.  We don’t usually make it to the official tree lighting, but we do go down to Rockefeller Center and see all the lights and sights and doing some shopping.  One of our favorite things to do while we’re there is to get some of the best hot chocolate ever in Bryant Park.

Rock_TreeHow does your town/city/area celebrate the magic of the holidays? Tell me and be entered to #win a signed sports pack bag.  And don’t forget Mina Carter & I are celebrating Christmas by giving YOU gifts. We are alternating days with fun posts on our blogs. So, remember to stop by each day and enter to win the grand prize: A Kindle Voyager or $199 gift card.  All winners will be announced on January 4, 2015.31dayssportspack

    In my country Christmas last until mid January(las octavitas.There are parties in every place, with music, food, drinks and lots of presents. We are party people. Lots of Christmas decorations on the streets, stores, churches and houses. There are special performances and prayers in church. Visits to elderly nursing homes and pregnant women and newborn programs to bring presents and articles of first need. Santa goes to elementary school to bring presents and a lot of others things. On Christmas everybody greets with FELICIDADES!ans hug and kiss. (We don’t know about personal space).I’m from Puerto Rico.
