December Events: Shopping, Stepping Out, and Singing Along

Christmas lights, ice skating, (spiked) hot chocolate, heavy traffic, slush flying onto your white coat as a taxi spins around the corner — New York is a magical mix of wonder and horror during the holidays. But mostly, wonder! And shopping. Here are some things to do this December, whether they’re helping check people off your holiday list, letting you get a few laughs, or allowing you to FINALLY sing along to “All I Want for Christmas” in person.
