Traveling Sock Sees A New York Christmas

Published by at 1:00 pm under Traveling Sock

It’s been a while since my socks took a trip, hasn’t it. Well, last weekend my dear friend J. came down for the weekend to see a little Christmas, so I brought a sock along.

The Sock went to Radio City Music Hall:
Traveling Sock Goes To Radio City.

I have seen the Christmas Spectacular quite a few times now (one of the benefits of growing up near the city) and I adore every last kitchy, high-kick moment. The Toy Soldiers routine is my favorite, and I have found for you all a video on YouTube so that you might understand why:

A lot of the office buildings in New York decorate for the season, so I showed J. and the Sock my favorite one:
Traveling Sock Takes In The City's Decorations.

And then we saw the tree:
Traveling Sock Visits the Tree.

I love the Rockerfeller Center Tree, but my favorite part is actually the walkway from Fifth Avenue into the plaza. Every year they put out these beautiful angels with trumpets who line the walkway leading to the tree.

The Sock stayed in my bag, as it was raining pretty hard by then (and even snowing a little!, but nothing that stuck), but Sock agreed that those glowing angels are wonderful heralds.

And before we called it quits on account of lousy weather and tourists smacking us in the heads with umbrellas, we went to St. Patrick’s Cathedral:

Perfect end to the day. We got on the train and promptly took some very well-deserved naps. I can’t speak for J. but I will admit to dreaming of sugarplums.
