Pumpkins may dot our doorsteps, but smart parents know that now is the time to start thinking about the December holidays—and snatch up the city's hottest Christmas tickets now. Prime seats at certain events, like The Nutcracker, Holiday Pops Kids Matinees, and the Train to Christmas Town are worth booking early, since they promise to sell fast. Whatever suits your family's fancy, you're sure to be the lucky ones with these tickets in hand before the mittens come out of the closet. 

Be sure to check our holiday guide as we move into November for even more trains, Christmas shows, and special kids' holiday events: We're constantly updating our lineup of holiday, Christmastime and Hanukkah events. 'Tis—almost—the season of joy!
