The winter time is known for having traditions. Some will have a list of traditions that reaches the floor and must be completed, or else, the holidays are ruined. Others, may just have a few on the top of their head, and if for some reason they can’t complete them, well, it’s not the end of the world. All the same, winter is a time when traditions are made and traditions are experienced.
I, personally, am one of those people who has a list of traditions on top of their head. Of course, I love having the knowledge of what will and will not happen. Plus, I am proud to say that I’m a list making person, but even with that habit, I would never freak out if I couldn’t complete something on that list. Last winter I was unable to sell my holiday cookies because I was stuck in Pennsylvania, Erie for my freshman year of college (Don’t worry! I escaped from the woods by transferring to university in New York…)
What I am trying to say, is that some traditions pull through and some fall through, but we must not base our happiness during the winter season by the amount of traditions we check off of our list.
With that being said, there are some traditions that most New Yorkers have grown up with, and who are strongly devoted to these traditions. These traditions bring a sense of unity and feeling of calmness within the scattered streets of the city.
- Go Iceskating at Bryant Park
- View the Holiday Windows Along 5th Ave
- Eat Street Candy Nuts
- Watch the Victoria Secret fashion Show
- Drive Through The Brooklyn Lights
The winter season was as if it was created to hold all the traditions that one could ever desire: traditions of food, traditions of festivals, traditions are beauty. There are enough traditions, that if you happen to lose one of your own, you can gain ten from walking down the streets of New York City.
