Looking for some Christmas Spirit ....

Have you any? I seem to have lost mine. I love this time of year and yet ... I'm blazé about it. 

Last weekend, in search of some Christmas Spirit, I went into New York City with Pumpkin. Every movie I've ever watched mentioned how there's nothing like Christmas in New York City. Heck, Rob Thomas even wrote a song called A New York Christmas. I thought it would be a great place to find some Christmas Spirit. Off we went!

Pumpkin knows how I absolutely love trains ... so she booked Amtrak into NYC ... I was so excited to be on a train. I was the kid and Pumpkin was the adult! LOL

Once in New York City, we did what every tourist should do, get a New York pizza. We ate at this small joint and the pizza was amazing.

Stomach full, we walked to all of the holiday places recommended to us. We did the Winter Village in Bryant Park and off to Rockefeller Center we went. I even saw Santa and an Elf skating.

Everyone talks about roasted chestnuts ... I did buy a bag at a street corner vendor (which seem to be owned by this chain). Anyway, don't try the roasted chestnuts, they were awful ... and expensive. They weren't even warm. 

We continued walking around, going to some personal favourites ... American Girl Doll, Lego, Barnes & Nobles etc ... Saw Macy's Holiday window displays .... so many people .... people everywhere ... you couldn't avoid bumping into people. We did over 22,000 steps! 

By the time we had to catch our train back home, we were pooped. I think we were also overwhelmed with the number of people. I figured New York City would be busy, but this was overly busy. It was like a dance floor at a busy bar! No room to move! It was quite the experience. 

After being in New York City during the Christmas season .... I'm still without Christmas Spirit. Not sure what is going on here ... I haven't done any shopping either ... Sigh!

Thanks for stopping by! Catch you all later!

Wow! Sorry about your Christmas spirit! The over-crowdedness would have killed it for me! I used to love popping in to NYC when I had work trips to NJ, but it doesn't sound like it would be much fun with so many people everywhere. Oh well -- at least you got to ride the train!!!
