If you’ve been paying attention at all, you know by now that the Pink Thing of The Day posts every Friday, with no exceptions. So why,  you may wonder, am I posting Pink Things on a Thursday? Well, it is certainly because tomorrow is Christmas, and I have something even better than these assorted Pink Tabletop Christmas Tree Decorations waiting for you this Friday! You’ll see what I mean tomorrow!

Pink Thing of The Day: Pink Christmas Trees!

I did my research and it appears that somehow, although many pink trees have been in the mix, during the 17 years I’ve been writing this blog I have never posted a Christmas-themed story specifically entitled “Pink Christmas Tree/s.” I couldn’t believe it either. So, to everyone who was holding your breath for that post, here you go.

These festive Pink Christmas Trees were spotted decorating the entryway to NYC’s Museum of Ice Cream (located at 558 Broadway) as part of its Pinkmas (yes, I just typed that) celebration.  The museum is currently running a promotion where buying one admission gets you a second admission for free, but this just applies to visits reserved for Thursday, otherwise tickets are $38 each.  Reserve your tickets to visit the museum at This Link and use the code THURSDAYFUN to receive the buy-one-get-one offer. Remember that this BOGO offer applies to Thursdays only, and is good through December 31st. Hours are 12 Noon – 8:00 PM, Wednesday through Sunday. Pinkmas will be celebrated through February 28th, 2021.

Merry Christmas 2018!

Last December, when I was celebrating my annual Christmas in California extravaganza, I spent a few days in San Diego visiting friends. While there, I had the opportunity to make merry at one of those oversize-Chinese Lantern Festival exhibits that pop up in stadium parking lots around the country at this time of year, and it was just amazing! If you live in the NY Tri-State area, you can visit the one they are having on Staten Island, and there is even a Groupon Deal for reduced-price admission! Score: a Direct Hit!

Why not do a little Googling and find out if there one going on where you live? It will be worth it!

I had just gotten off the C Train at Spring Street when I passed right by a lovely Christmas Tree Lot, where someone had created these adorable little Reindeer from  leftover twigs and bits of trees.

What a clever idea! I don’t know if they were for sale, or if they were just for adding spirit to the lot, but I enjoyed looking at them.

Disco Ball Christmas Tree

Geoffrey and I went all the way down town on a mission to investigate the Museum of Feelings, which turned out to be a bust, because the line was (realistic estimate) 90 minutes to 2 hours long. And we are about waiting in lines no. So, while we were down there (because Battery Park City is a fucking haul from our respective residences), we decided to just see what kinds of cool snaps we could take. Because Geoffrey is obsessed with the Instagram, and I know that I can always score a few blog hits with a fun photo.

And what we saw as soon as we walked into the Brookfield Place mall, which is what you have to walk through to get to the Museum of Feelings, was this awesome Christmas Tree studded with Disco Ball Ornaments. Super Groovy.

As you can see, the ornaments are  mix of the classic mirror disco ball variety, and red or green mirrored mosaic designs. Festive!

Very nice!

As we walked through the mall towards the water, we entered the famous Winter Garden, (which was destroyed in the 9/11 attacks, but as since been beautifully restored) and that is where the full-on Disco Ball Christmas Trees were hiding.

If you end up in that part of town for whatever reason during the Christmas Holidays, take some time to walk around and enjoy all of the decorations, because it is really beautiful down there.

Christmas Things That Are Merry and Bright: Midtown, Manhattan

On the Saturday that fell over the Thanksgiving long weekend, Geoffrey and I had the bright idea that it would be a fine time to visit the Museum of Modern Art. By 2 or 3 in the afternoon, we felt sure that the crowds would have thinned out and we could just slip through the line and see some rad art. HAHA, how funny to have thought that, as we quickly discovered that the place was ridiculously mobbed and the lines were so endlessly long, that we had no choice but to bail on the idea of seeing any art that day. However, we decided to at least “take advantage” of the fact that we were actually in midtown, and perhaps do some window shopping and a bit of sightseeing.

You may know that in a recent post that I admonished anyone who wants to maintain their sanity against even trying to be in the vicinity of midtown Manhattan during the Christmas season, because it will make you hate your life. But what made the trip worthwhile was getting to see all of the fantastic Christmas holiday decorations that make for some terrific photographs.

The photos in this post were all taken between Radio City, located at the corner of 6th Avenue and 5oth Street, on Fifth Avenue just a few blocks downtown, and then west through the 40s towards Times Square. I didn’t always take note of an exact addresses, but if you walk around that general area, you should be able to spot most of these. Because, they are kind of big and, well, lit up.

Chase Plaza Red Christmas Balls

These oversized Red Christmas Balls are an annual fixture in the fountain at Chase Plaza, 1251 Avenue of the Americas.

Night had not quite fallen, so I’m not sure if they are illuminated in the darkness, but I would guess that perhaps they are.

Reindeer and Red Trees

I really love these reindeer sculptures, and the bare trees wrapped in tiny red lights. I believe this is just down the street from Chase Plaza, but don’t hold me to that.

Giant String of Christmas Lights

This colorful String of Over-Sized Christmas Lights is in front of the McGraw-Hill Building, Located at 1221 Avenue of the Americas.

Tree of Lights

I am pretty sure this Holiday Tree of Golden Lights is inside a building that’s just one block further downtown than the Giant String of Christmas Lights. I love the fact that I captured a man working on this display.

Silver Christmas Balls

These assorted sized Silver Balls were inside a  clothing store  window. I didn’t  notice  which one.

These Giant Christmas Balls sitting atop a pair of revolving doors were possibly on W. 49th St. as we walked towards Times Square.

I hope you enjoyed my photos! Merry Christmas, everyone!
