School's out for the holidays as families plan vacations and gatherings. There's not much to blog, the news bringing you the highlights. My family is busy with the holidays, as we make our plans. This is one of the great times of the year to live in NYC as there is always something to do. Saturday is the shortest day of the year, which is usually cold but will feel more like spring in the city. Children still believe in Santa Claus ... as do some of us adults. Enjoy the holiday.
