Yes, it’s trueDecember 2022 is here—and for many New Yorkers, the start of the twelfth month of the calendar year marks the beginning of the winter holiday season. Throughout the City, households, organizations, and businesses alike are using the start of the month to prepare for the upcoming holidays, and we know many of you are also doing the same and are setting aside time to spend with your loved ones.
