Years and years ago I came across a picture book called Christmastime in New York City by Roxie Munro. I fell in love with this book! It is strictly a picture book – no story included. It is a beautiful showcase of the artist’s skills and contains picture after picture of New York City all decorated for Christmas.

Last year, my sweet hubby helped me check Christmas in New York City off my bucket list by taking me to Manhattan in mid-December. It was a wonderful day and I was able to visit many of the sites in the book.
