The Chicago Files

A CANADIAN EXPAT'S EXPERIENCES AND OBSERVATIONS LIVING IN THE WINDY CITY!

Macy's Window 4 2014

Every Christmas season Macy’s Department store exhibits an absolutely magical montage of Christmas moments in the windows of their stores.  I tried to capture some of these for you; however, two things stood in my way:  me, and the window glare!  I do apologize for the lack of quality in these photos; nonetheless, I hope you get ‘the idea’!  Lots of baking special goodies in this display! The fellow near the Christmas tree actually spent his time whirling around it! I caught him just as he was rounding the back!

Macy's Window 2 2014

The displays are incredibly well done; they cause quite a crowd to form at each window, as you can well imagine.  Lots and lots of wrapping to do!  These toys are anxiously waiting to capture a child’s heart!

Note the, “Santa Mail” on the mailbox! Special delivery for Santa, including his own special, magical mailbox!

Macy's window 3 2014

Letters received! I knew they would make it!

Have a wonderful day, everyone!

  3. Used to be Marshall Field’s, until it was sold to Macy’s, and we went every year. It was a tradition. We would go to see the windows and then eat lunch the Walnut room by the gigantic tree. Chicago history.

    Hi Cher, we miss seeing you at BSA. I like the first photo where we can see you taking the picture. It adds a lot.
    The Japanese have a word “wabi,” which means the flaw in an object that makes it unique and beautiful.
