2019 has been filled with highs and lows, as every year. I've gained, maybe too much weight, but that means I had an abundance of nourishment. Learned somethings, must have made a few mistakes, there were lessons to learn. Laughter there was a lot of that, never too much of that and crying too, sometimes it's good to let it out. I am thankful for it all. Have the Merriest of what ever you celebrate and if you don't celebrate be HAPPY.
Saks 5th Ave always has this "Disney like" light display set to music. The first few years they did this, the music that was used was Mannheim Steamroller, Carol of the Bells.

This is Christmastime in NYC, nothing will dampen our spirits. The windows for Saks was fashion, dreaming, and show business. lovely jewel tones. Like most starlets, they love a bead, bauble and a rock that cuts glass.

A skating rink was opened below the tree in the plaza in 1936.
