Christmas Windows to Warm the Heart

Macy's Displays
Photo by myself in front of Macy's, at 34th Street and 6th Avenue.

Here's a closer view of one of the window displays at Macy's, which are lit up and have moving parts. The sidewalk in front of the store is constantly crowded with onlookers.


It was very chilly on Monday, here in New York, with temperatures in the 20's. WIth the wind hurtling down the street, it felt more like 4 degrees below zero.

People were nearly running down the sidewalks, scuttling with heads and faces covered. Perhaps they were frantically doing their last minute shopping? Brrr!!!!

got to Macy's today at 7am. Empty. 8am: still empty. Then at 10, (I had a lot of shopping to do), the floodgates opened and there were people everywhere! Looks like Christmas in full swing to me...

I beg your forgiveness for my cutting and pasting – yet constantly reworking – this comment, but there was no way on Earth I would be able to make it around the whole globe to wish everybody a Merry Christmas otherwise.

The magical elves that constitute my staff have demonstrated their lack of respect in either not showing up for work at all, and those that have all seem a little worse for wear, if you catch my drift. All they seem to do is sit around smoking cigarettes that, quite frankly, smell funny. And they play cards and tell dirty jokes rather than do their jobs! Consequently, the reindeer are all filthy and out of shape. And you know, the two rabbits, one wallaby and three wombats I’ve drafted in just don’t cut it as replacements.

Anyway, from myself, Henry and Ezra, have a Merry Christmas/Winter Solstice/Hanukkah/Festivus and a happy New Year!

I hope that all of your holiday photos turn out to be triumphs, your stocking is stuffed full of lots of tasty treats and not coal and that all your pumpkin pies are all as sweet just the way that you like them.
