A Christmassy Sunday in New York

I have been going through all the photos I’ve taken over the past few months when I realized I have to tell you about Tubachristmas!

It was a lovely Sunday during the December and we went to see the Muppets. I made that my favourite movie of 2011! I watch this clip so much – it is such a happy film. If you haven’t seen it you should go!

When we went to get our sodas at the cinema, we were faced with these amazing new coke machines… 50 trillion ways to make your drink. It is AWESOME… so I had to take photos!

This is the screen where you choose what you want –

When we pressed the coke selection, we got all of these options for flavours!

This was for Sprite Zero –

We then wandered to one of our favourite quick but tasty food places, Schnippers for lunch. Look what we found along the way… Angry Boys promo in Times Square!

We then did a spot of shopping and found this along 6th Ave –

Then, we kept going to the Rockefeller Center where we got a good position for Tubachristmas . The New York City Tubachristmas is the biggest in the world. The Rockefeller skating rink gets closed and hundreds of tuba players line up and play Christmas carols for everyone to sing. It was a lot of fun and there were so many people there. Here are some of our photos –

When then made a quick stop by St Patrick’s Cathedral with what felt like every noisy tourist in NYC (reverence please!) before going home. Here is the view from our bus stop –

Then we dropped into Olea for dinner that is just around the corner from our place so we could just walk home from there, with leftovers in hand and relax for the rest of the evening.
