“This was Christmas Eve in New York. This was the city dressed in richest stone and trinkets. This was the city trying to match the gems from her endless treasure chest against the winking sparkling brilliants in Heaven’s vault. This was a city bathed in Christmas peace, breathing carols into the night. This was City Magnificent.”
~ Meyer Berger, Pulitzer Prize Winner, Journalist, NYT
New York City during the holidays is a dazzling American treasure. The city pretty much screams Glory to God in the Highest while simultaneously whispering and on Earth Peace, Good Will toward Men. It is 2016. Many people in our country and around the world are struggling to find their footing, some are struggling to find hope in the season, and a little love for their fellow man. But this is a place where optimism is on display and joy abounds–and, let’s admit, a place of harmless distraction from troubles great and small. It is still a time for celebration, the close of one year and the renewal in the next.
We hope you will find something here that brings you cheer! (And, maybe a few ideas for your next trip to NYC.) But wherever you may be, we hope you are with the faces that bring you joy and holding the hands that bring you love.
Cheers and Happy Holidays from Sleeps 5!
