It goes without saying that the holidays bring us all an enormous amount of joy throughout the month of December. Red cups of hot cocoa are just a little tastier, sweaters just a little cozier and lights just a little brighter. For Manhattanites and tourists alike, those lights exude extra sparkle throughout the holiday season, especially up and down legendary retail streets like Fifth and Madison Avenues.
With unlimited resources and an incredible amount of professional talent, New York’s premier department stores go all out with their holiday window displays each year, displaying shiny, extravagant works of art for the entire city to enjoy. We’ve showcased a few of the most stunning windows right here (along with a few from one of London’s top shopping spots, just because we couldn’t resist), so you can keep sipping that cocoa and enjoy the spectacle in your pajamas. Because that’s what the holidays are about, right? Enjoy!
