Christmas Time Haibun

It’s Christmas time in New York City. At this time of year walking down 5th Ave is like taking a stroll through a very glitzy jewelry box. A sea of Christmas decorations spannig the street above the traffic and in store windows on both sides. All of it knee deep in citizens, tourists and the usual sideshows. For some, this is the only time of year that they venture into the city from small towns upstate and from the outer boroughs. While to others, soaking up the Christmas spirit in a stroll that ends, begins or pause at the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree, is a part of their holiday rituals. It’s a celebration of Currier and Ives coming to life.
