In a city as diverse ours, it’s easy to fall into the trap of concentrating on how different we are, but in truth, we’re all a lot more similar than you might think. That is doubly true for the Christmas season. As the city changes with the season, our collective mindset changes with it. Here are 18 thoughts that cross all of our minds as Christmas approaches:

1. I am not going anywhere near Times Square for the foreseeable future.
