I love how our audience has transformed into these wonderful helpers on Christmas day. The city transforms into a winter wonderland as well. Ginger, you went to the north pole? This is unbelievable. I didn't know it existed but it does, from 18-fool long candy canes to the Christmas tree at radio city music hall, this place is your fantasy 4r57bd. . Reporter: It's the most wonderful time of the year in New York City and along famed fifth avenue, all the halls are decked and glowing with Christmas cheer.
