Ice-skating, tree lightings, holiday shopping and The Nutcracker—it just doesn't get any more New York City than that. Soak up the joy of this holiday season by taking part in some of NYC's most iconic and anticipated events. It's cold outside, but if you plan to brave the weather, you won't be sorry. Check out the world-famous Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade for a time-honored experience, the Union Square Holiday Market for gifts for loved ones and the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting to really get you in the spirit. For those of us who prefer the warmth of the indoors, the Origami Holiday Tree at the American Museum of Natural History is not to be missed, and the Grand Central Holiday Gift Fair offers many one-of a kind items for those on your gift list. View the full slideshow for additional information on these and many other events.
