Photo of the day: ONLY IN NEW YORK – do you see a woman going to the upscale trendy Trader Joe’s supermarket on Sixth Avenue in the Chelsea neighborhood to do her grocery shopping, then only to hail a cab to take her groceries home, therefore doubling her bill. In Queens and Brooklyn the ladies have shopping carts, in Manhattan – they have cabs…only in New York
SANTACON CABY: Yesterday approximately 22,000 Santas of all types and styles descended on New York for the annual Santacon celebration.
There was fat Santa, tall Santa, dirty old man Santa, naughty Santa, Grinch Santa, baby Santa, zombie Santa, flasher Santa, disco Santa, leather Santa, biker Santa, gay Santa, Star Wars Santa, pimp Santa, punk Santa, hippie Santa and endless more elves and Mrs. Claus’s to match !
It is sort of a flash mob idea. The secret meeting place is only revealed on Facebook and Twitter shortly before the day of Santacon and they all meet in mass and create a huge sea of red. Imagine Christmas shopping in New York and all of a sudden the streets are filled with Santas as far as they eye can see. Unfortunately I couldn’t participate because I had to give a tour, but here is your average scene yesterday: Buses full of Santas, subways full of Santas, bars full of Santas, cabs full of Santas – ho – ho – ho ! ! !
NEW YORK GLITTER:What is more shiny and bright than New York?
New York and Christmas just go perfectly together just like the glass ornaments in my tree, I love they way they reflect light and shine – just as New York City does.
And what is more New York than a bright yellow shiny taxi cab or bagels and cream cheese from your favorite delicatessen? The iconic I Love New York logo or the silhouette of the beautiful Flatiron building?
Christmas trees and New York – two big extravaganzas filled with colorful ornaments.
Big, shiny and bright! HAPPY HOLIDAZE !
All these ornaments are for sale on my EBAY page, seller ID: VONRITT
