Christmas final

  1. 1. Merry Christmas In NEW YORK
  2. 2. For many people the best time of year in New York is Christmas. By this time, the city becomes the capital of this celebration. Customs have global recognition, and events like the "Radio City Christmas Spectacular“, stunningly decorated stores, the "Shopping Week", the huge "Rockefeller Center Tree" or the “End of the year at Times Square“ are globally known.
  3. 3. The Christmas season in Manhattan begins earlier than in other boroughs. Although Christmas starts with the lighting of the "Tree of the Rockefeller Center", Christmas decorations in stores are ready right after "Thanksgiving Day".
  4. 4. Then, Christmas shopping starts with the famous "Shopping Week“ that concurs with the lighting of the "Tree of the Rockefeller Center“. New York gets flooded with mostly domestic tourists, so hotel rates go up in price. Once the "Shopping Week“ ends, the prices go back to normal and shopping centers begin to offer other discounts and deals.
  5. 5. The first Wednesday after Thanksgiving Day, Christmas celebrations officially begins with the ceremonial lighting of the Christmas Tree at the Rockefeller Center (Rockefeller Center Tree Lighting Ceremony) by the governor of New York. This tree, which is the largest in the world, is chosen by the director of Rockefeller Center complex gardening. It is a Picea abies always exceeding a half-centuryold and 20 meters in height.
  6. 6. December 25th is Christmas Day and New York is deserted. The shops, museums and entertainment venues close their doors, and New Yorkers celebrate with their families at home; in many cases, out of town. The arrival of Santa Claus (Father Christmas) on Christmas Eve brings gifts under fully decorated trees and homes with joy, especially among children.
