For the past few years, Macy's has done interactive windows. On 34th street side, the windows had buttons, you would step on to make, Santa Fly, put toys in the bag, and have fun. This caught the eyes of young and old....grown ups especially had a good time being a kid again. On the Broadway side, the windows were message and brightly colored with lights.

I wasn't going to do it this year. I thought maybe the stores didn't even decorate......BUT I WAS WRONG. A friend encouraged me to go, so I grabbed my mask and took a short walk. 5th Ave was lit like they had been doing for years, with these little characters dotting the Avenue. This is 5th Ave from 53rd - 57th Streets.
Saks 5th Ave always has this "Disney like" light display set to music. The first few years they did this, the music that was used was Mannheim Steamroller, Carol of the Bells. This year it was 'No Business Like Show Business'. Even in the rain, the viewers gathered to look up at the building every 15 minutes, ending with thundering applause. This is Christmastime in NYC, nothing will dampen our spirits. The windows for Saks was fashion, dreaming, and show business. lovely jewel tones. Like most starlets, they love a bead, bauble and a rock that cuts glass.
