CHRISTMAS IN NEW YORK

 
     
Deck the halls with boughs of holly! New York at Christmas is always special - and the days are counting down!

Although snow is really pretty unlikely, it's always nice to imagine sitting by an open fire, singing christmas carols and looking out of the window to see the snowflakes falling on Christmas Eve.

Christmas is a time for children to be enthralled by the wonders of Santa (or Father Christmas, depending on your preference). Imagining Father Christmas on his sleigh, pulled by Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen and Rudolf... delivering presents to all the world's children in one night.

And of course there's the shopping - some people love it, some hate it, but whether you are buying your xmas gifts in New York or further away, we guarantee that you'll almost run out of time.

Looking for some gift ideas? We recommend visiting our friends at Getting Personal for unique personalised Christmas presents.

 

 




Christmas quote of the day:
...Don't forget to leave a little drink for Santa by the fireplace, and a snack for his reindeer. They love carrots.

    PREPARING FOR YOUR CHRISTMAS LUNCH IN NEW YORK
     
 

  Preparation is always key for any event - here are a few hints and tips that can set you on the path to success... that you may not have already thought about.

1) Make sure the turkey (or whatever you're cooking) will actually fit in the oven before Christmas Day. You don't want to be dealing with that at 7 o'clock in the morning.

2) Charge the battery in the camera.  The last thing you need is to take the first photo and see the battery light appear.  You should also check that you have enough space on the memory card, or enough film.

3) Buy snacks. It's not unusual for christmas lunch to take longer than planned, so make sure your guests have a few nibbles.

Quick tip for a great xmas in New York: Think about mixing the day around a little. Most families have exactly the same christmas day every single year. How about making christmas lunch and christmas dinner, or vice versa? Open the presents at a different time. Get everyone up in the morning and sing carols in the back garden!

THINGS TO DO AT CHRISTMAS    
     
Of course everyone knows the obvious things at Christmas - buying presents for your loved ones (it's so hard to buy for your dad, isn't it?), picking up the christmas tree and decorating it (and then picking up the pine needles for a month), and of course sharing December 25th with your loved ones. But there are other things that you can consider to put a little twist into your festive season.

1) Give to a local New York charity. And we don't just mean money, think about giving your time. There are many people who could do with a little extra help at this time of year

2) Get a second job to pay for all those extra presents. Many companies take on additional workers at this time of year - the Royal Mail often offer 18,000 extra jobs, both delivering and sorting

3) Don't eat turkey. Try something else, such as pheasant, roast beef, duck or lamb. The truth is that we all eat turkey constantly throughout December and actually it can be a pretty dry eating experience with lots of cooking stress!

Whoever you hire, we recommend you take up a couple of references for local entertainers in New York.

   

We love singing at Christmas - whether it's classic songs or christmas carols - some of our favourites include Silent Night, Silver Bells, Sleigh Ride, So this is Christmas (Happy Xmas), The Christmas Song (Chestnuts over an open fire) .

There are many reasons why Christmas is the best time of year, but our personal favourites are the presents, the food and the fun of putting up your own christmas tree and decorations. These days its becoming more and more popular to set your christmas around a theme. It might be a colour scheme, perhaps green and red, or perhaps something more natural like snowdrops. Once you start, it becomes quite easy!
