The tree at Rockefeller Center, the Macy’s window displays and even the house on the corner all dazzle with an array of lights. It may be cold out, but don’t you want to enjoy the holidays while they’re still here?

The Mad Hatters G&T Party: Xmas Special (173 Morgan Ave @ 2 PM)
luxeandthelady “Every adventure requires a first step” - Alice in Wonderland 🐇♥️♣️: Christmas has now officially taken over my brain and my kitchen 😄, and I can’t wait to get my decorations up next! There is just something so magical about this time of year that brings out the best in people and reminds me of the wonder of the holidays I felt as a kid. Even though there’s only 1 month until the big day, and it’s my busiest month 😅, I’ve decided to make a list of all my fave Christmas things to do, and to make time for them. The holidays always pass by way too quickly, and I want to enjoy every moment of it 💕. Alice in Wonderland seems to be all around me lately (maybe because I truly am the white rabbit 🙃), but I had just ordered the perfect 🐇⏱ornament for my tree when I came across this magical Alice inspired gingerbread house by @asami_kamioka and could not get over how clever and cute it is!! She has some incredible holiday/character mashups, if you haven’t seen her work, including the cutest Totoro snow globe cookies 🥰, but of course that little bunny on the front of this house just got me and I had to share it for this week’s sweet share ☺️. Hope you have a fab start to the week 💖! 📸:@asami_kamioka #flatlay #cuteness #foodstyling #dshappy #eeeeeats #flashesofdelight #feedfeed #lovelysquares #disneyfood #vscofood #kawaiifood #huffposttaste #thatsdarling #disney #foodphotography #thehappynow #kawaii #darlingmovement #livethelittlethings #foodart #choosejoy #f52grams #cutefood #aliceinwonderland #heresmyfood #funfood #homemade #thebakefeed #gingerbread #gingerbreadhouse
Get started with a welcome cocktail and then create 3 crazy molecular cocktails in this mad tea party. Both Alice in Wonderland Themed and Christmas themed, this is sure to be a wild party. All taking place inside a cottage perched on top of a double-decker bus, this is surely an event you haven’t been to before.

therealstanlee #Repost @johnlee_art ・・・ Growing up I filled my life with all the characters that this man created for us. I can't count how many times I would sit at the wall during recess with my friends drawing SpiderMan and X-Men. He is the main reason why I love comics and why I love to draw and tell stories. We will miss you dearly. Excelsior! #ripstanlee

New York Giants vs. Chicago Bears (1 MetLife Stadium Dr @ 1 PM)
chicagobears Easy decision. Congrats @ejackson_4! #🐻⬇️
The dominant Bears defense comes to New York to take on Eli and the Giants. After a tough start to the season, the Giants have shown shimmers of hope, maybe enough to stop the Bears playoff chances just a bit. Winter is the time of year for cheer, and what better way to do that than at a crucial football matchup!
