Holiday Windows in New York City!

The Holiday season can sometimes turn a bit stressful with all the list-making and shopping and gift-giving and what not! In busy cities, it can be all the more over-whelming with the never-ending crowds! 

In NYC, department stores like Lord & Taylor, Macy’s, Saks, Bloomingdales and a few others have gone out of their way to add a little extra spice to the holiday season by displaying beautiful Holiday windows! Times like these make me want to act like a tourist and go all crazy clicking photos of the beauty all around! 

Yesterday I decided to go see a few, but unfortunately I could only cover two of them. In my defense, there were so many window displays in these two stores alone, that I kinda ended up spending a lot of time over there. 😀 (Hopefully, I’ll get to see some more in a few days again!)

Saks Fifth Avenue has created winter wonders in their window displays this year, while their front facade has been completely transformed into a winter palace in the form of a bedazzling light show!

Lord & Taylor has some real cute or as they say ‘kawaii’ display all around. My favorites were the snowmen and Rudolph on top of rotating cupcakes and the little dancing gingerbread men balancing a gingerbread house!

To tell you the truth, the photos do NOT do any justice to the actual beauty! Many of them are animated ones and I clicked a lot of videos (I have posted few small videos of them on my Insta too. Do check it if you fancy it)

If you are in or around NYC for this holiday season, be sure to check them out. Trust me, you don’t wanna miss them! For those who can’t make it, I hope you like this little eye candy through my post! 😉

Have a lovely day ahead!!

        Yes, absolutely, it gets as bad as Times Square and I can’t deal! During the week is definitely preferable.

            It’s still worth it though; it helps to get people into the Christmas spirit!

        Awh… I experienced Christmas once while living in the suburbs of Buffalo. But in a City like Manhattan it must be just amazing! You are lucky!

    Isn’t it beautiful!! Although I think Santa needs to wear flip flops and bermuda shorts it’s so warm here. NYC is magical during the holidays.

    They definitely outdid themselves this year! I don’t remember their display being as great last year! Are you planning to go see the Macy’s Window display on 34th st?
