It's Christmas Time in the City

Thanksgiving 16I'm back in New York City in time for Thanksgiving! AMERICAN Thanksgiving that is.... which works out because I missed the REAL Thanksgiving since I was not in Canada in October (just kidding American cousins).... anyways.... I usually say "humbug" whenever I see early signs of the Christmas commercialism which has hijacked the CHRISTmas season, but not this year.... I seem to have caught the CHRISTmas spirit early just from walking around Manhattan....

it's kinda hard not to get caught up in the festive air that has descended on this already vibrant and exciting city....

besides, I've got lots to be thankful for this year, as with every year.... earlier today, I caught the tail end of the Thanksgiving Day Parade.... literally, 'coz all I saw of it was Santa's tail end moving away.... but no worries 'coz as they cleaned up the parade route, I got to see his sleigh up close and personal, along with a more interesting bearded wonder....

so, whether you're American or Canadian or what not, I hope your Thanksgiving was great.... I hope y'all enjoy the coming holiday season... don't be a humbug....

Hi Angelo...wow those decorations are beautiful. I've also posted about the "Silly Season", too. It will only get better...or worse, depending on how you view it.

Have fun in New York...what a fabulous place!

Puss-in-Boots: Hey Robyn, I'm gonna take the "it will only get better" attitude this year... don't get too silly this season, I hope you get a chance to breath and enjoy the festivities!
