Who does Christmas spirit better than New York?
The best things to do on Christmas Eve in NYC
Unsurprisingly, some of New York's Christmas landmarks have turned into well-worn touristy ruts, yet are somehow still worth every second, but there are some definite dos and don'ts. It's worth fighting the crowds, particularly after dark when the lights bounce off the bare shoulders of the golden Prometheus statue.
Lights click off at pm through Christmas, then at 9pm through New Year's Eve. DON'T skate the ice rink here.

DO embark on some last-minute Christmas shopping at the Union Square Holiday Market, where you can pick up unique items from local craftspeople and artists. The market operates daily from November up until Christmas Eve. DO go see Macy's elaborate Santaland — a stunner of a scene of Christmas trees, elves, toy trains and snow-filled wonder.
DON'T go on weekends, or midday any day. Show up before it opens 10am and you'll only have to wait five minutes, or come an hour before closing doors shut at 10pm Monday through Saturday and 9pm on Sundays. And, heaven forbid, don't tug on Santa's beard.
