What is YOUR Favorite Holiday Tradition? {w/#Photos}

Remember when I mentioned in my December 12th Wordless Wednesday: The Rockefeller Center Holidays 2012 Edition {#Photos} #NewYorkCity that I purposely left one photo from that day out? There was a reason I was holding back on posting that photo which will be revealed today!

One of my favorite holiday traditions was visiting the Christmas Tree at Rockefeller Center in New York City with my Mom! We would usually go to Radio City and then go see the tree! This year I got to visit the Tree twice, once with my mom and also since I was nearby the night of the lighting itself when I left the Hispanicize New York City Meetup.

Aside from our tradition of opening up one present at midnight, seeing the tree is my favorite holiday in New York City traditions!

Here is a picture of me and Mama Butterfly when I was little visiting the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree:

And here is one of me when I was little opening up one gift at midnight:

    1. @Big Happy Buddha - I love to see decorated windows (and in the city fire-escapes), that's a fun tradition! Thanks for sharing it!

  2. My favorite tradition is making cookies with my mom every year. I love being with my family. Merry Christmas to you and yours!

    1. @abby b. - That sounds like a very tasty tradition! Nothing better than warm cookies straight out the oven! :)
