The Wonder of It All – Welcome Christmas

Dear Readers,

Happy Holidays!  It is hard to believe that in a few more weeks, it will be Christmas.  I absolutely love this time of the year.  Perhaps it is my imagination but most of the people I encounter appear to be happier, kinder and gentler.

This is also the time of the year when sparkling lights, and other decorations, seem to rule the night!  I am amazed to see how easily some of New York City’s iconic buildings are transformed.  For me, walking along and listening to all of the compliments is priceless.

With this in mind, I thought, why not do something different for today’s post?  So, I have assembled some of my favorite holiday photos from my Pinterest account to share with you.  For full disclosure some of the photos that you will see are from past years.  Other photos come from some of my favorite places outside of New York City, but the sentiment is still the same – Joy!

In case you missed the reference, Brooklyn Legends is also on Pinterest.  When you have a moment, please visit us at Brooklyn Legends on Pinterest.

Have a great day and remember to enjoy the splendor of the season.

  1. Oooo I so love Christmas, the feeling of anticipation, spontaneous joy and excitement just warms my little heart. A few Saturdays past, I was on Fifth Avenue simply to look at the decorated buildings and windows. I stopped to buy some chestnuts and as the vendor handed them to me it began to snow, for this girl from tropical Trinidad it was magic.
    Thanks for sharing your Christmas wonder.
