Nothing compares to the magical feeling and excitement of Holidays spent in New York City. Although this is my adopted home, I really love the spirit of togetherness here, where each religion is celebrated and welcomed with open arms.
During the holidays, I take my family to visit Rockefeller Center where we can watch the tree lighting and take a spin on the ice. The ornaments on the tree make me wonder if I shouldn’t design and create some for my friends. I have made some wonderful memories there the other year when my dear sister came to visit us from Brazil. Here is a picture of us engaged in the spirit of the holidays in front of the famous Rockefeller Center Christmas tree.
My family also enjoys winter activities like sledding on a hill not far from where we live, and we love to play in the snow for hours and hours.
Food and celebrations are also a big part of our Holiday festivities. We really enjoy the parties and big dinners that add such sweetness to our lives.
I make a special treat for my loved ones this time of year and I am sharing this special family recipe favorite with you:
I also would like to take this opportunity to share my very best wishes for a wonderful Holiday and a Happy New Year!
