Christmas in New York City is a time of glittering windows, Rockettes, Christmas trees, lights, parades, masses, and shopping, lots of shopping.
The traditional start of the season is Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The next day is Black Friday. The following Monday is Cyber Monday. That is followed by Giving Tuesday which was started here in New York City by the 92nd Street Y. The Rockefeller Christmas Tree gets lit at the end of November and New York City goes into full holiday mode.
Colombian Christmas starts on December 7 with the Día de las Velitas (Day of the Candles).
