Thanksgiving Day in New York City

I adore New York at any time of year, but most of all I love the atmosphere of the city at the end of November and December. Decorated shop windows, Christmas markets with all sorts of useless things, music in department stores, shopping for gifts at Black Friday, ice rink in Central Park. “It’s the most wonderful time of the year!…”

Thanksgiving Day is one of my favorite holidays, and I am like a child waiting all year for this holiday 🙂 Cause in NYC, Thanksgiving is a special one. This year, Thanksgiving falls on Thursday, November 27, 2014. On the eve of this perfect holiday I want to share with you the lost interesting things that will happen this year.

This is the biggest sale of the year. Black Friday – Friday after Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving Family Table

Of course you can have a luxury dinner at the one of the best restaurants in NYC, but as for me, Its a family holiday, when all the relatives and friends will gathered together and will have the delicious dishes. table Thanksgiving Day in New York City Thanksgiving Day in New York City table table_decor Thanksgiving Day in New York City Thanksgiving Day in New York City table decor
