Christmas in the city
We also went to the holiday market at Union Square and Grand Central station. Here's a picture of the light display on the walls of the station. Grand Central is truly one of the most beautiful train stations I've been too. It's so majestic, evocative of a by-gone age.
Unfortunately, I didn't get any holiday shopping done despite the tempting wares at the markets. It's just so hard to shop for people. I'm always so tempted to just whip out the gift cards, but that just takes all the romance out of it I suppose.
We also went to the Saks department store window displays. The animated portion of the windows were cordoned off to allow more orderly enjoyment of the display, but I was pretty disappointed with them. They were more creepy than cute. I've heard that the Macy's display is better so I'll have to make another trip to the city.
