A tradition in New York City during the holidays is to see the Radio City Christmas Spectacular. The show features the Rockettes, who are precision dancers famous for high kicking chorus lines. Santa hosts the show, which features dancing teddy bears; a 3-D sleigh ride; and nativity with live sheep, camels, and donkeys (performed since 1933). Each snowflake costume contains 3,000 Swarovski crystals. The 35-foot-tall Christmas tree chandelier in the lobby is stunning! More info is at: http://radiocitychristmas.com/

      The slow motion fall is really amazing. We had no idea beforehand. We read that the soldier outfits are specially crafted for each Rockette, and the pants are starched until they practically stand up by themselves. What a sight! Happy new year! 🙂

  2. Really a spectacular Christmas in NYC. Happy Christmas to all! Cheers…….
