Christmas presentation

  1. 1. The Holiday season is in full swing. The likelihood of catching a Christmas carol hovers near 100 percent, should you leave your Grinchy lair.
  2. 2. Lights on the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree: 45,000.
  3. 3. Christmas trees sold in the city that were grown in New York: weirdly, very few. (Most come from Canada and North Carolina, though upstate growers (my neighbors!) hope to squeeze in next year.)
  4. 4. Number of tourists who will take tour buses to Brooklyn to see the over-the-top Christmas displays of Dyker Heights: 6,000.
  5. 5. Weight of the New Year’s Eve ball: 5,386 kg. Millions estimated in Times Square to see it drop: one.
  6. 6. What does Santa Claus and/or Christmas look like in the Basque Country? What traditions do you celebrate? What do you do on New Years?
