I just had to respond to this, because I am actually one who really doesn't care for New York City in December! Must be a locals thing! The normal non-December hustle and bustle is just perfect for me.
I'm a New Yorker and I love Manhattan during Christmas, but I'm not too impressed by the tree and all that. It's not so much the actual attractions as it is the feeling in the air. But I live in a different borough, so maybe it's different to those who are around Manhattan 24-7.
