Tonight is the lighting of the Christmas tree in Rockefeller Plaza... a spectacular show. Despite the throngs of tourists, a visit to the tree is always on my holiday activity list. It is more breathtaking in person and fun to watch the ice-skaters below (I've even caught a few proposals-- how romantic).
Our Christmas tree went up on Friday-- a smaller tree since we'll be with my family in California for the holiday. We had champagne and "hot dates" (bacon-wrapped dates, a favorite around here) to celebrate our first tree-trimming as a married couple... I hope a tradition was born!
