Back in New York after an eventful journey from the West Coast, Neil Patrick Harris is wasting no time getting in the holiday spirit.

"Happy Harlem Holidays!!" the actor told the Twitter faithful on Monday. "Finally arrived (layover in Vegas – won $9.50 in slots!), got us a tree, about to trim."

Then, after working his magic on the evergreen, the How I Met Your Mother star offered up this festive photo of his handiwork. "Tree trimmed. Balls hung. Good times," he wrote.

Harris, 36, then hit a Broadway show on Tuesday night – the rock musical Next to Normal, which he deemed to be "fan-frigging-tastic!"

All of which was well earned, given the nightmare before Christmas for travelers following the weekend's heavy snows in the East.

After his original flight to New York was canceled on Sunday, Harris tweeted: "Feel like I'm on the Amazing Race. In the bad way."
