Lunch Hour Christmas

Christmas-time in NYC might arguably be my favorite time to be in the city. From the decorated store windows and trees draped in sparkly lights to the street corner Santas, there is just something magical in the air come December. My office is located right off of Times Square, so I have a front row seat to all of the fun Christmas action.

It was pretty warm out today so I decided to use my lunch hour to take a quick jaunt up to Rockefeller Center to see this year’s tree. Isn’t she pretty?

For me, no visit to the tree is complete without lighting a candle in Saint Patrick’s Cathedral. However, getting across the street in the height of tourist season can be some feat. Mass was being held during my visit so I didn’t want to go wild with pictures. But you get the idea. The church’s interior is absolutely beautiful.

I also had planned to take some pictures of Saks 5th Avenue’s windows but I was honestly so underwhelmed that I didn’t even make the effort. I also felt way too touristy whipping out my iPhone to take pictures of Kathie Lee and Hoda taping a segment for the TODAY Show. There are just some lines that New Yorkers don’t cross!

Another great post with great pics! I need to take a lunchtime trip to Rockefeller Center soon. Remember, these little trips are a great way to fit some exercise into a busy day.
