Merry Christmas – New York

New York is a fantastic place to visit. During our recent visit there, we saw the largest nativity scene ever!!

**Disclaimer….it is just the largest nativity scene that I have ever seen….the Guiness book for world records might disagree. 😉

As a matter of fact…..the record for the largest live nativity scene was just set December 1, 2014 in Utah. This nativity scene included 1.039 people and a few camels and sheep. How so many?  Well, the usual 3 kings, Mary,  Joseph, baby Jesus, a couple of shepherds, and a whole lot of angels!

Inside the Metropolitan Museum of Art there is a tree…20-25 feet tall? Full of angels.

Beneath the tree, beautifully carved and painted people and animals.

New York also has lovely lights! The Rockefeller Center tree wasn’t lit yet while we were there, but we saw lots of lights anyway!

Saks 5th Avenue store windows are NOT to be missed. I hope this photo, which in no way even begins to do it justice, at least give you a flavor. This year’s theme was An Enchanted Evening. See professional photos of the fantastic windows here.

There was a fantastic light show on the side of the building as well!

Enjoy the adventure wherever life takes you! Call upon The Educational Tourist for your planning needs – a little, or a lot!

Merry Christmas!
