Though the streets of New York may still be crowded with holiday shoppers, some residents and visitors are now finding their way home. With two days left to Christmas Eve, it's time to sort gifts, find the wrapping paper, bake the cookies, and warm the tired feet.
Santa himself should be a little tired by now, dreaming of a vacation in warm weather.
The holiday trees are starting to look a little lonesome and in need of a nap.
May the streets lead you home to a warm room and a comfortable chair.
After much strolling, Walking Off the Big Apple is home now, sorting gifts, finding wrapping paper, baking cookies and warming tired feet. It's been a wonderful year on the streets of the city, and I look forward to returning in the new year.
Happy Holidays, everyone! See you back here on New Year's Eve.
