Living in NYC during the holidays is one of my favorite time’s of year, when everything seems just a little more magical, city lights seem to glow just a little brighter, dazzling window displays keep passerby’s mesmerized, families get dressed up to take pics with Santa while festive holiday tunes help distract us from the busy hustle and bustle as we countdown to Christmas.
The holidays are all about traditions new and old, and as I kid I remember my dad always taking my little sister and I to the Hallmark card store at Queens Center mall where we’d pick out our new ornament to decorate the tree and sometimes I was even lucky enough to get a whimsical snowglobe to add to my collection. This holiday season the Hallmark channel premiered the Northpole movie which stars
Tiffani Thiessen, Josh Wagner and Robert Wagner and shows us how important traditions are in a town filled with people too busy to celebrate until they rediscover the magic of the holiday.
Imagine how exciting it must have been for kids of all ages here in the city to discover that right in the middle of Times Square they were going to get the chance to communicate with Santa’s elves in the North-Pole. Hallmark invited media/bloggers & their children to experience the North-Pole Communication Station, before it opened to the public and headed on a 5 city tour. As the kids stepped up to a huge North-Pole communicator they met some of Santa’s helpers who showed them how they could chat with the elves, to let them know whether they’d been naughty or nice and what they wanted under the tree this year.
The kids got such a kick out of talking to the elves and made sure to tell them everything they wanted on their lists, and thought the new line of Hallmark NorthPole toys were pretty fun. It was such a great time, the kids were too busy playing with elves to even notice or care about how chilly it was that night.
