I had the chance to go to New York City last weekend and I took advantage of the opportunity by checking out the holiday lights, mainly at Rockefeller Center.
To say that I was blown away would be an understatement. Not only were the lights and decorations absolutely stunningly beautiful, so were the people!
There were lots of them!, entire families, parents and children, from all over the world. And they were happy and enjoying themselves, and laughing and talking and smiling and taking photographs, and handing their cameras to complete strangers (like me) and asking them to take photos of their families. There were no arguments or snippy remarks or people losing their patience. People didn’t even seem to notice that it was a cold 29°F.
The entire atmosphere was so pleasant, that I cannot adequately put it into words. Even the cops were in a good mood!
And so for my holiday greetings this year, I will post some mediocre photos I snapped with my Blackberry in Manhattan and wish you all the happiest of holidays in whatever way you celebrate them and a healthy and prosperous New Year.
