The other day I went for a little stroll while it was snowing and snapped these pictures. If you’ve ever been in NYC during the holiday season, you’ll know how magical it is. I’m sad that these lights and decorations have probably already been taken down, but I’m keeping one string of twinkle lights up in my own room for now. I don’t know why, but the lights just make me feel warm and cozy and safe.

Tell me: Have you packed away your holiday decorations?

    So beautiful – I always loved NYC over the holidays. I still haven’t taken down all my decorations yet…probably this weekend though.

    How gorgeous! I haven’t taken down my decorations yet. I always leave them up into a little while after the new year. I think around this weekend they will come down though.

    • Thank you Jenmarie! I like to leave mine up a little after the New Year too :)

  • The city looks so beautiful, all lit up and covered in white!

    Of course my decorations are still up!! Its only a week into January!

    • It does, doesn’t it! I think that’s great! I know some people get rid of them like first thing the day after Christmas (so many discarded trees on the sidewalk).

  • so so pretty! new york is so magical with snow!

  • How pretty! Would love spend some time in NYC. Ugh I need to take down my decorations but I’m swamped with projects so when I get home, I’m working.

    • Thank you Angel! Yeah, at my childhood home we sometimes left the decorations up until February or March because we were too busy/lazy to take them down!

  • I love twinkle lights! I kept some up in my room for a few years at one time. I never got around to decorating this year, so there was nothing to take down. But I loved seeing holiday decor around my city.

    • Agreed- seeing the holiday decor go up around here in late November/early December made me so happy :)

  • I had forgotten how magical NYC can look under a blanket of snow. Thanks for sharing!

    These pictures are beautiful. I would be sad to see such pretty decorations going down too.
