Our family came to the US in December, arriving in New York City on December 8th and the city was decorated with Christmas lights. You could imagine the culture shock when I first saw the sparkling trees inside people’s apartments in Brooklyn New York. It seems like a long time ago and we don’t have high-rising apartments here in Hickory. What I missed the most about NYC at this time of the year is the Christmas decorations, especially the Rockefeller Center Christmas lights and storefront Holiday window displays.

Our Christmas lights here are not as grand, and one of the biggest trees in town is not as big but very sparkling in my opinion. I was able to capture the beauty of it this year, unlike last year of this same tree.
