A Taste of Christmas at Lincoln Center


Thanksgiving has taken another notch in our belts and as always, Christmas is right around the corner. This is the week when most Christmas-loving Americans break out the lights and holly, readying themselves to pose for kisses under the mistletoe. Grandmothers across the country dig up their candy thermometers to start making fudge and most important of all, tree-trimmings are scheduled.

The smells, the sounds, the sights all bring back childhood memories of delightful anticipation of presents and excitement of having a tree in the house. But as a true New Yorker, my cozy downtown apartment is barely large enough for its three inhabitants; playing host to arborist holiday inclinations is simply out of the question.

For those nostalgic for the scent of evergreen, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts hosts their Annual Holiday Tree Lighting tonight from 5:30-6:00pm. The celebration will be held on Josie Robertson Plaza at Columbus Avenue and 64th Street and boasts aerialist and operatic performances as well as an excerpt from George Balanchine's The Nutcracker. For more information, check out the Lincoln Center website.
