It's Christmas time in the city...

Ok, so we technically don't celebrate Christmas, but you've heard my spiel about New Year's Eve and that the way we celebrate is nearly identical to Christmas (except for reindeer, overdoing it with presents, and the whole "naughty or nice" thing - I can't even begin to wrap my head around that one to be honest). So we went to see the Christmas tree in the city last night. It was so much fun: Sasha had the best view from her papa's shoulders and didn't want to leave, we saw the Saks Fifth Avenue windows, the angels, people ice skating (now, naturally she wants to go ice skating herself), and even tasted some (overpriced) roasted chestnuts!

She is Christian, but in Russian Orthodox calendar, Christmas is actually celebrated on January 7th. She's not really that religious to be honest, so we don't usually do anything. But New Year's is THE big holiday of the year.
