There's just nothing quite like New York City during the holidays. Between the mesmerizing window displays on Fifth Avenue to the return of holiday markets around the city, we can't think of a better time to enjoy our time in the Big Apple. (Oh, and not to mention there's a season's worth of parties to wear sequins to?) After all, we believe that there's no such thing as too much sparkle and shine this season.
So whether you're spending the holidays with your friends, family or your S.O., here are six things to make the most of your December.
See The Nutcracker
The classic ballet is a holiday tradition for a reason. Plus, there's no better excuse to get dressed up and channel Sugar Plum Fairy vibes by way of diaphanous dresses and soft maquillage.
