Shortly before Christmas, my friend and I rode the train from Grand Central Station to the Bronx for an event at the New York Botanical Garden.
On select weekend evenings throughout the holiday season, the Garden presents a festive program anchored by the popular Holiday Train Show—Bar Car Nights. Guests can enjoy performers, food trucks, live ice sculpting, dueling pianists, the train exhibit, and, of course, alcoholic beverages. Yes, Bar Car Nights are adults-only.
This year, I have found the Christmas season especially magical. Maybe it’s because I shared a few days with an old friend. Maybe it’s because I’ve been listening to Christmas music non-stop. Maybe it’s because my wife and I watched Savannah bedecking itself for the holiday on our recent trip.
Enjoy the day and the rest of the season. Celebrate. Indulge. Spread cheer. See wonder in the world.
Happy Thanksgiving! Wishing you a wonderful day and a hearty meal with family and friends.
This year, forgo the mad consumption of Black Friday. Instead of heading to the mall or shopping online, watch a favorite film, read a book, or simply share another day with your loved ones. Indulge in leftovers, too. All experiences truly deserving thanks.
