    You may recognise this sight, the Christmas tree outside the Rockefeller Building in NYC. The city is both a rite of passage of the festive season and the setting for countless Christmas classics, so make it your stage this December with the countless other visitors who decide to escape the constraints of home. A festive cracker, the Big Apple is the most Christmassy place of them all but it's also a hard place to be lonely. Be sure to check out Macy's elaborate Santaland, Rockefeller and FAO Schwarz.


December 25, 2016, may just seem like one Christmas too many. You may be fed up with the haunty great aunt who sneers at soggy sprouts, the weighty cousin who hogs the remote and both of whose snors and body odour seem to emanate throughout the house. You may be impatient with the emptiness of a 21st century Christmas, obsessed with better presents and bigger stockings, that forgets what the message really is. You may just be looking for a change of scene. Either way, you're not alone. There are many looking to escape the Christmas status quo, to jump the sinking ship, and fly away.
