I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

The Radio City Christmas Spectacular vs. The New York Spring Spectacular

Radio City has had their famous Christmas Spectacular for years. This year they started a new show called The New York Spring Spectacular. This year the Spring Spectacular was moved to the summer and renamed the New York Spectacular. It will run from June 15- August 7. Last year, we were lucky enough to see both the Spring Spectacular and the Christmas Spectacular, and here is a comparison of them.


Me - Here is what is different about the Christmas Spectacular and the Spring Spectacular:

1) The Spring Spectacular had a story which carried throughout the show.  The Christmas Spectacular had a little bit of story that only carried through a few scenes.

2) The Spring Spectacular had well-known special guests like Derek Hough of Dancing With the Starts and Broadway and TV actress, Laura Benanti. The Christmas Spectacular didn't have anybody famous in it other than the Rockettes, and they are more known as a group than as individuals.

3) The Christmas Spectacular had all Christmas songs. The Spring Spectacular had a wider variety of songs.

4) If you don't celebrate Christmas, you might feel a little bit left out of the Christmas Spectacular. The Spring Spectacular included one Easter song,but over all,  it was much more inclusive.

5) The Spring show is new and different. The Christmas show is pretty much the same show they have had for years with maybe small changes.*

Mom - Here is what is the same about the Spring Spectacular and the Christmas Spectacular

1) Both shows run about an hour and a half with no intermission.

2) Both shows features colorful costumes and sets.

3) Both shows have some really great moments.

4)Both shows have good singing and great dancing.

5) Most importantly, both shows feature Radio City's famous Rockettes who are always worth seeing.

And that's our view. Which show do you prefer?

Tune in tomorrow for Tips for Tuesday.
