Christmas over the top in the Big Apple

Rockefeller Center is the epicenter of the holiday hoopla. It like a hub everything starts here and branches out. imitation Bulgari B.zero1 ring yellow gold cheap During this season it transforms into an enchanting fantasyland, like a giant Christmas card that comes to life. Ice skaters glide by beneath the towering 78 foot Norway spruce topped with a brilliant Swarovski crystal star. Illuminated angels, golden trumpets in hand, line the Channel Gardens leading up to the tree. Twelve foot wooden soldiers proudly stand guard over the ice rink and the Promenade. About 750,000 people a day reportedly view the Christmas tree.

I was pushed, shoved and got my feet stepped on navigating through the exuberant crowd. It took me a good 15 minutes to walk from 5th Avenue to the ice skating rink, less than a block away, to get a good view of the tree. The Channel Gardens are packed with people jockeying for the best spot to take sel with the dramatic tree as a backdrop. I had to duck and dodge to keep from getting poked in the face by a selfie stick.

Without leaving Rockefeller Center, you can watch dazzling Winter Palace Light Show a theatrical spectacle featuring synchronized lights and music. Thousands of gleaming lights create icicles framing the fairy tale Winter Palace. Magenta, cobalt blue, pink and purple lights illuminate the building facade. (CST) every 10 minutes until Jan. 10.

If you go

Getting there: United and Delta offer non stop flights into the Greater New York area.

CityPASS offers admission to six of NYC's most iconic attractions. Air tickets are pricey unless you keep your eye on the fares and buy a few months out.

After watching the light show, head north up 5th Avenue to Bergdorf Goodman for some serious window shopping all along the way. This prime real estate, lined with luxury shops, offers the best retail therapy money can buy. You find every imaginable luxury designer and jeweler here Harry Winston, Tiffany Co., Bulgari, Bergdorf Goodman, Dolce Gabbana, Gucci you name it. If the streets aren paved with gold, the shop windows are. Saks and Berdorf windows are lavish beyond belief. Barneys New York can always be counted on for the edgiest Christmas windows. This year is no exception with a live ice carver and artist art glass.

Fifth Avenue is also a primo place for people watching during the bustling holidays. Hordes of visitors stroll arm in arm, five abreast, while residents rush along the crowded, noisy sidewalk. You may need to BVLGARI jewelry imitation be a sidewalk warrior to fight your way through the mob scene, especially between 49th and 57th Streets. Don be surprised if you get pushed off the sidewalk into the street.

The upscale designer shops attract an enormous number of international visitors, and you hear many foreign languages being spoken.

If you not in Beyonce or Madonna league, don despair. You can still find bargains from street vendors like $10 pashminas, hats and knock off designer bags. You also find roasted chestnuts, giant pretzels, hot dogs topped with sauerkraut, knishes and candy coated nuts cooking in copper kettles on the street corners. I can resist the candied cashews. I always give in to their enticing scent. If your timing is just right at Lindt Chocolate flagship store, you may get lucky and get a truffle sample.

I always been in awe of St. , a legendary landmark, on 5th Avenue. I recently dropped in during one of the seven daily Mass services. Although my stay was brief, it left a lasting impression; it was enough time to absorb the gorgeous Gothic Revival architecture, soaring vaulted ceilings and stained glass. If I had more time, I would have lit a candle in my mother memory.

If a glitzy, glamorous Christmas isn your thing, check out Little Italy, an ethnic neighborhood on the Lower East Side. It as real and as down home replica Bulgari B.zero1 ring as you can get. Lights are strung above the streets and the specialty food shops; bakeries and cafes are jammed. Most of the holiday action takes place on Mulberry, Mott and Grand Streets, where street vendors are set up. Here you can buy adorable gingerbread houses, roasted nuts, Italian cookies and candies and much more. I made my annual pilgrimage to Bella Ferrara Bakery for cannolis. They even have a Cannoli Express cart set up outside. The weather is so surprisingly balmy/mild this year that folks are dining al fresco at the street side cafes. To a seasoned , that a shock!

Don fret if you can make it up to the Big Apple for this Christmas there always next year. For that matter, New York City has imitation Bulgari B.zero1 series of jewelry it own magic any time of the year.
