Merry Christmas!

Father Christmas hasn’t even arrived and there is fun and frivolity everywhere. The Frick set the pace as usual for the festive season with a jazz band that had staff swinging while Vermeer and Rembrandt tapped in the background. Mickey dressed as Santa at the local fire station. Snow fell for a little pre-Christmas crooning, decorating pine trees in white but not disturbing the sellers while they slept on-site. Berdorfs won the window competition with gorillas and giant rabbits in glorious green. Who needs elves?! Scrooge grumbled at the Morgan celebrations during the reading from the original Christmas Carol, but that didn’t stop yours truly toasting the season from JP’s desk. And as always on the street there are the spontaneous moments where people pause on their way to party, balancing bears and balloons. It is time for some traditions to become history, like cookie day at The Frick, and for new ventures to be sought. We have a film to make and family to go home to. So let’s raise a glass and enjoy the moment. Thank you for a great year and all the best from NYC for the next. Cheers!
