I love New York during  holiday time and nothing is more iconic for  the season than the tree50  Rockand the lights at Rockefeller Center.  On many streets,  leafless trees are bound with  lights that sparkle in the night.  The entire Cartier building is wrapped in a giant red ribbon and bow while  store windows are packed with  little vignettes like turn of the century skaters or surrealistic visions like Lady Gaga.  In recent years, the Salvation army bellringers now rock  out Christmas favorites.  The army of little girls that  troop to see the Nutcracker ballet at Lincoln Center put the ladies of Fashion Week to shame.     In France, the nighttime street fairs offer hot mulled cidar to warm up cold shoppers while in London I never tire of  the way Harrods is lit up like a giant ornament.   What are  your favorite holiday  sites?  Any  photos to share?
