THE 411

What: Christmas Day

Date: December 25th

Why: annual celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ


Definitely my favorite time of year.  New York City absolutely sparkles during the season and all the lights and decorations, almost give the city a feeling of magic… sounds like the old song Silver Bells, doesn’t it!

Make sure you take some time and visit with your family and friends during the season.  If you’re far away from family like me, that’s what social media and Skype is for!

Let me take this moment to wish you and yours a Merry Christmas and hope that the fun of the season carries you all year long.  At least for me — the extra calories do!!!!
