Many New Yorkers will agree that winter is one of the most magical seasons of the year, especially in the Big Apple. From the lighting of the tree in Rockefeller Center, to the light show displayed on the windows of Saks 5th Avenue, it’s truly one of the most unique and special times of the year. Every year we become completely inspired by the holiday atmosphere of the city, and we thought we’d share a little bit of New York magic with our readers!
These beautiful animated window displays from Lord and Taylor brought us back to a forgotten time. The illustrated scenes paired with the moving characters looked like a storybook coming to life.
Saks 5th Avenue had a whimsical story displayed in its windows. Passersby could follow the story of a young yeti who was determined to chase his dream! Kids were lined up around the block to see the animatronic yeti in action!
The windows at Anthropologie were a DIYers dream come true! That adorable slumbering bear was actually made of spools! Their attention to detail was enough to have you standing in front of the window for hours on end.
The holidays are in full swing in the city. We think that New York City really embraces the holidays in a special way, but we might be a little bit biased. What does your town do for the holidays? Send us a photo of your favorite decorations!
