It’s almost Twelfth Night, when according to tradition, all Christmas decorations must be taken down, so this ‘Thursday’s Lingering Windows’ challenge, is my last chance to show you more of the gorgeous Christmas windows in New York. We took our little granddaughters on the train to Penn Station, where our son met us after work.
Then a yellow cab transported us uptown to see the beautifully decorated big tree.
The 70 storey high Rockefeller Center looked spectacular against the night sky.
We could see in the distance, the Empire State building, lit up in red and green, as we stood in line to view the famous Saks 5th Avenue holiday windows, which always draw the crowds.
This year there was a mix of old-fashioned animatronics and state-of-the-art technology, and the windows followed the adventures of a young Yeti who leaves his family in Siberia to make it big as an artist in NYC. He moves to Queens and commutes by train to Manhattan, eventually winding up as the exclusive snowflake maker for Saks.
What a great success story!
We couldn’t leave to go home until we’d visited the Bank of America Winter Village at Bryant Park, to watch the ice skating, and there was yet another gorgeous Christmas Tree.
I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing the last of my Christmas windows. To see more windows for this week’s challenge, visit ‘Dawn’s Lingering Look At Windows Week # 1’.
