It’s that festive time again, the streets are lined with cheap Christmas lights, you’re already at the end of your tether with the supermarket’s telly ads and if you hear another Christmas song someone’s going to get hurt. Good job then that there’s plenty of opportunities to get away from it all and find some genuine seasonal cheer; and what better way to hark back to the spirit of yesteryear than indulging in one of Christmas’ most iconic pastimes, in some of the world’s most iconic spots…
Rockefeller Center, New York
An oldie, but still a fave; you can never tire of twirling your way around the Ice Skating Rink set on the The Rockefeller Center’s Lower Plaza. Gaze at the regal 30 Rock building towers soaring above you and catch a glimpse of the bronze-gilded statue of Prometheus as you’re gliding by. A romantic and festive ambience is set by christmas music being played as well as the beautifully decorated christmas trees covered in sparkly lights.
