New York is the perfect destination this 2016 holiday season. There are a lot of things going on in the city that will surely make the last of month of the year worthwhile. 

Today is the best time to start planning out your NYC Christmas 2016 events in December. Here is a simple but helpful guide that will help you get started!

Enjoy some spectacular dancing and singing the Radio City Christmas Spectacular. This is a great show to start off our holiday in NYC. You will enjoy a night full of tap dancers, 'Rockettes' and even a flying Sanda. This one-of-a-kind show starts on Nov. 11 and runs through Jan. 2, 2017. Book your tickets here

The Lighting of Rockefeller Christmas Tree is an event that you should not miss when you're here in December. This is an annual event that thousands of New Yorkers and tourists look forward to seeing. The Rockefeller Christmas Tree will be lit starting on Nov. 30 at 7pm this year. Regardless if you feel like reminiscing about your family like that kid in "Home Alone" or not, you are certain to feel the winter magic once you witness that 78-foot tall Christmas tree light up.

Christmas holiday season is never complete without some window shopping. But NYC offers a different kind of shopping with its Holiday Windows. This is the kind of window shopping that both the adults and kids would love. Saks Fifth Avenue, Macy's, and other department stores in NYC presents a whole new world behind a store glass. It is a world full of festivity, fun, and magic that will leave viewers enthralled. Enchanting window displays at Saks this year is themed "Land of 1000 Delight" and lights up at 5 to 11pm every ten minutes until Jan 2. 

Among all the things to do in NYC this December, Bryant Park Winter Village is something that you should not miss. Aside from the hundreds of shopping and food options, it has a 7,000-square-foot ice-skating rink. If you are looking for a place to spend with your family on weekends or if you just want to take a spin on the ice while under the stars, this Winter Village is the perfect spot. You can bring your own skates or you can rent one for only $20. Skating hours are 8am to 10pm every day through Mar. 5, 2017.
