It's time for Pink Saturday -- on Sunday -- fun with a visit to perhaps the most iconic place in New York City at Christmas, Rockefeller Center. I enjoy stopping by any time of year, but it's magical at this time of year. The tree, the skaters and the decorations are among my favorite parts of the season, and ones I never want to miss.
I had a very sunny day for my visit this year. It was great not to be cold, but it didn't make for bright lights.
This year was as crowded as I have ever experienced. so much so that I couldn't get close to the skating rink to take pictures. I promise to return later in the winter to take pictures of the ice skaters.

He's tooting out wishes for a very merry Christmas and a very happy new year!
On a different note, my prayers for safe days for New York City police officers and fire fighters, and their colleagues across the country.
I'm somewhat amazed that Christmas is this week. I've wrapped and mailed presents and done some of my cards, but I have a number still to write. I feel more organized than during my working years and happily not as rushed. I've really enjoyed being able to visit so many places in New York City this month and share the photographs. Tomorrow we return to the Union Square Holiday Market.
I hope you're having a great weekend. As always, thanks for visiting and take good care!
