Okay, we are the first to admit that New York City might have a bit of a problem. Let's call it premature holiday syndrome.
Some of us haven't even picked out our Halloween costumes and we're supposed to be okay with department stores playing Christmas carols? Did Michael Buble come out from his hole early this year or what?
Still, it's hard not to get in the spirit of things, even a couple months early, in NYC because no one does the holiday season like our city– the window displays, the sidewalk Christmas tree farms, and especially, the holiday markets.
The Rink at Rockefeller Center is already open, Bryant Parks' is coming up soon, but there are so many options for (nondenominational, of course) holiday fare, it can be hard to keep track.
Sure, it's kinda whack thinking about holiday gifts before you've even carved your Thanksgiving turkey but seriously, these places are only fun before the tourists get their hands on them– we should consider ourselves lucky we get early access before they come flooding in.
