It's not just Christmas time in the city, it's Christmas Eve. There are less than twenty-four hours to Christmas day. It's a day for cooking, perhaps a few errands left to do and getting ready for celebrating Christmas. I've still got a few cards to write, a few packages to wrap, and a few blog posts to finish. This is the scene as I walk up Broadway doing my errands and enjoying the last day of the season.
The lights of Lincoln Center are my first stop on my way home.
I've already stopped at the Farmer's Market a few blocks away and found these treats.
The aroma from the herb wreaths was lovely. One of the things I will miss most on December 26 is the aroma from herbs and greens that have turned the sidewalks of New York into a forest glade.
Hansel and Gretel time in a local bakery window
This chorus of dogs and penguins made me smile
This is the scene on every third block. I feel that I've fallen into a version of Christmas "Ghost Busters."
Wishes for a bright and beautiful Christmas Eve, with time to enjoy the aromas of the season and many moments of joy and happiness.
