Last Christmasgave you my heart was in NYC for a week of festive fun; we went ice skating in Central Park, went to Madison Square Garden (a first for me) to see the  New York derby ice hockey match, Rangers vs Islanders (which brought back memories of playing NHL with my bro on the N64), manic sale shopping at Macy's, saw all the beautiful Christmas window displays and made a trip to Philadelphia to explore a new city.
