Twas the Day before Christmas Eve...

Walking around in the drizzle - though the day is quite mild
I see...

that the artist Berch has decorated the barber shop...

that there are lots of wet berries on the holly on 22nd Street

and balls hanging from the trees.

The florist on the corner of 8th and 22nd is bursting with color.

The man handing out Metro bears a strong resemblance to St Nick.

Misty windows at Le Granne

and Santa's helpers at Bergamot

with charming hats.

Back at home the usual crew decorates the desk.
Remember trolls?



  1. I love your pictures of Christmas in the city. Happy holidays!

  2. Oh My Goodness, I love the views you get to see at Christmas Time. Each one is a treasure.
    Living in NY at Christmas must be wonderful.
    Happy Christmas to You All.

    cheers, gayle
    The Square Ones.

  3. Have a lovely Christmas!

    And yes, I do remember Trolls!!


  4. Love to walk with you around your gorgeous city, Elizabeth!
    Wishing you and yours loved ones a Very Merry Christmas!
    Lots of hugs and much Love to you and to adorable Buster too!

  5. Oh Elizabeth, I do hope that the heavy rain stops before tomorrow morning. But...all the same, this post of yours really does NYC proud, showing so many holiday images, bright and merry.

    Happy Christmas to you and yours. xo

  6. Thanks, again, for a Christmas tour of the city. My niece is here from N.Y. for Christmas. Then, she is on to her new life in France.
    I thought N.Y. was far away but France is even farther!
    Merry Christmas to you and your family and, of course, Buster.
    P.S. I just got Jane In Winter and will start it after the festivities tonight.

    1. But France is rather marvelous!
      What a good excuse to visit there - though it is indeed a long trip!

  7. And to you too. I started Ruth & Gisela last night and I'm totally gripped already. xx

    1. So glad you are enjoying it. It's not really a novel but a true story in novel form about my two mothers...!

  8. Merry Christmas to you in New York from me across the country :)

  9. Merry Christmas to you too Elizabeth. Thank you for your card.
