Christmas Arrives In Bryant Park

Winter’s colder weather is fast approaching as November drags on. The lingering anxiety of impending holiday season is in the air. Retail stores nationwide are hanging their holiday decorations, kids are bringing home their holiday break calendars, and it seems like just yesterday we were saying goodbye to our white pants and brown tans of the summer.

When we were children, the only thing we had to remember was putting out cookies and milk for Santa Claus! In the fast paced holiday season, it is important to stop and enjoy the holidays.

One of the best weekend ideas is to visit Bryant Park. As I walked down 42nd street, I was delighted to see the ice skating rink and vendors already set up. Smells of hot food, the chill of the ice rink, and glitter of the Christmas decorations created a magical sensory overload. The shops are open now until after Christmas, and the ice skating rink is open until February.
wirednyc.com Food vendors like Max Brenners’ offer euphoric treats like thick, warm hot chocolate. The perfect pairing with a cozy sweater and ice skating! Or, travel down vendor rows and check out all the great gifting ideas offered from local businesses.

So head to Bryant Park! Turn off your phone, and drift around the vendors and rink. Forget about bills and errands, and get lost washing your hands with soap that smells like sugar plums. Enjoy hearing people laughing and having fun, and enjoy feeling like a kid again. Go on, I dare you.
