I tried to ride the subway on Christmas Eve, but ended up having to skip the first two trains to arrive since they were so full that not everyone could get on. I wonder where everyone was going? Maybe a concert. When going home, it was not as crowded but still pretty bad. The photo is from the return trip, when there was less people.
