It’s hard to top NYC during the holiday season. It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and the city sparkles with seasonal cheer. From the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree to spectacular holiday light displays and festive holiday markets, there’s no shortage of holiday merriment in the city. You can find a perfect tree or take a spin on an ice skating rink, then grab a pic with Santa. If all this joy makes you want to burst into song, you’re in luck. There are plenty of opportunities to sing Christmas carols in NYC with other merry revelers. Join in one of these singalongs and you can carol at the top of your lungs, even if you don’t know all the words to O Tannenbaum or sing a little off key. After a few rounds of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and Silent Night, warm up with a steaming mug of hot chocolate and you’ll be merry and bright throughout the season.
