I also didn't care for the 3D video game number. It just seemed pointless to me. I get why it was there both as a way to engage children and also to reenforce the concept of the holidays being about spending time with those you love, but the dance number was hard to follow with the 3D bahumbugs and fireworks flashing in my face.
I also wasn't crazy about the religious ending but that kind of goes without saying considering it's a Christmas show. But it was a very flat ending to an otherwise colorful and eventful show. So much so that the lady sitting next to me completely lost interest and started taking photos with her cell phone and talking. :/ Annoying!
We also took a walk to the tree on our way back. Overall it was a great Christmasy day. We met Santa, saw the tree and got to see the Rockettes. Can go wrong there can you?
I posted earlier on my wall about how I haven't been this joyful during the holidays in a very long time. I wouldn't consider myself a ba-humbug but I have always been bitter about the holidays. Mostly because what I see is retail as a means of spreading joy and that's not what this season is about. Also because I get very annoyed when people try to push their religious beliefs and traditions on me. I am not a fan of being forced into anything. I have very different beliefs then those around me and while I don't actually have a problem with the holidays I do have a big problem being pushed into following Christian beliefs that I don't actively follow. I was raised a lackadaisical Christian but personally I think that's wrong. If I'm going to follow a religion and celebrate the holidays I feel like I should really have an understanding of exactly what I am following and celebrating.
My point in saying all this is regardless of my normal Christmas funk I have perked up a lot this season. I expect to be spending the day with my friends family for the third year in a row and now that the kids know me better it's a lot more fun. I like to win over kids. I did that last year by putting a Barbie jet together. I won an 8 year old over today by showing him where the New Years Ball is, the Chrysler Building, the Empire State Building and aiding my friend in telling him if he didn't finish his broccoli we were going to hang him upside down of the 2nd mezzanine for the whole show. But as for holidays I don't think it's what religion you follow it's just about enjoying time with people as I will be this years.
Also perking me up is the promise of a fun New Years. I have a two year-old's birthday to attend and I am pretty sure when he goes to bed it's turning into an adult party. :o) This Saturday I will be in the city spending time with another friend and seeing one on my girlfriends perform in a aerial show! Technically she is doing acro and it's from what I understand her second performance ever. I missed her first show because I had food poisoning back in May. Not fun. I will also be attending the Big Apple Circus next week for the very first time! Circus Circus Circus. Circus Smurkus!
Lets hope I get more pictures during the next two trips!
