People will be lining the streets next Thursday for the 95th annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade which is returning after a year off when it was modified to an audience-free event. For many New Yorkers, the parade is considered the official kickoff of the holidays. In that spirit, decorating for the holidays commences as early as the Friday following Thanksgiving for some.

Unlike people in the suburbs, city dwellers don’t have much space to work with when “decking the halls'' of their residences. However, whether it’s picking out the right Christmas tree for your space, decorating your mantel or finding alternative ways to bring holiday cheer into your home, there are plenty of experts who have brilliant ideas to offer. There is no shortage of ideas or workarounds to decorating small spaces, which means anyone and everyone can enjoy the holidays in the comfort of their own home.

And of course, we live in New York City, famously known for its magnificent Christmas displays and store windows so we always have our own backyard to enjoy the holiday spirit all month long, for anyone who needs a little “extra”. Regardless of how little or how much you plan to decorate this holiday season, be sure to check with your building and/or superintendent regarding rules and safety regulations around lights and decorations.  

Enjoy the fun of decorating with friends and family, and remember, when possible, to support your local community by shopping small, including all the amazing vendors throughout the city’s holiday pop-up markets.
