To Do Thursday: Bring On the Dancing Girls

The Yuletide spirit has managed to stir a glittering excitement from deep within our jaded depths. Instead of ordering soggy Chinese and watching the fourth season of Breaking Bad straight through (for the second time), we’ve decided to hit the town. Why not? It’s Christmas! We’re heading down to Radio City Music Hall where we’ll watch, mesmerized, as those Rockettes kick up their heels in perfect synchronicity. It’s not the tap rendition of “The 12 Days of Christmas” that has us on tenterhooks, but rather the nativity scene. Seeing the Virgin birth re-enacted on stage with that 1,000-watt shining star of Bethlehem in the background gets our heart racing every time.

Radio City Christmas Spectacular, 11 a.m., 2 p.m., 5 p.m., 8 p.m. Tickets, from $45, available at
