Picture This #179 - Christmas

I haven't had much time to go anywhere with the camera, so I went back into my archives and tried to find some photos that I hadn't used before.

First is the Nativity scene at Radio City Music Hall in New York City:


Only in New York!!!
Only in New York 

Every year, Santa hops on a boat which is pulled by either an ambulance or a fire truck and is driven through the streets here on Christmas eve, music blasting, giving goodies to the kids who come outside to see him. I miss the days when my kids would hear the music from blocks away and get excited waiting for Santa:

I'd like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas. May all the joys and blessings of the season come your way
