Christmas Time in New York

There's something wonderful about Christmas time in New York.
Frosty displays fill shop windows, strings of lights line apartment windows,
and if we're lucky enough for snow, people with children and enough space 
will make snowmen to guard their doors. 
One of my favorite parts is probably the most simple.
I love seeing the trees lining the streets, the smell of them.
Decorating for Christmas has been a little delayed over here.
We are still in the process of repairing our den so two rooms worth of 
furniture are currently occupying the space where our Christmas tree usually goes.
We are hoping to get the new floor down by next week, but we'll see.

In other news, I already feel behind on my Christmas shopping.
It's been tricky this year, I have lots of ideas for gifts but nothing solid.
In truth, it's been difficult to even come up with suggestions for myself.

What's on your wish list this year?
