CHRISTMAS WINDOWS from AM&A's Buffalo, NY in Lancater 2008




ABC Wednesday

The letter is W for Christmas WINDOWS

A video of a lovely old fashioned Christmas Window above, but here below are some wonderful examples of more modern and sophisticated displays to delight and attract buyers to some of the large departmental stores in New York, London and Paris.

At Harrods, depicting the English Steam Train



 
and at Lord and Taylor's in New York





at Macy's



 and Tiffany's
 


a simple nativity scene that surely depicts
 
the true meaning of Christmas -
 
not sure if it is in any Christmas Window
 
but it would be a stunning reminder!
 


 
For more great interpretations of the letter W wander on over to ABC Wednesday, found here
With thanks to Roger, Denise and a host of wonderful helpers.

I wish you happiness at Christmas, - an abundance of joy!

Peace and many blessings.....

I love that last one best Hildred - beautiful in its simplicity.

We used to love to take our kids and grandkids to the "big city" to see the Christmas windows -- none of which were as stunning as the ones you show, but the cities weren't as big either (Spokane Washington in the early years and later Portland Oregon).
It was always a joy to see them through the eyes of a child.

I wish the same to you Hildred.
Let there be peace and joy.
Merry Christmas and remembering the reason for the season.

These take me back to childhood days when Mom & Dad would take us to look at the windows at Woodwards downtown Vancouver. They have a display of some of them now at the Convention Center. I miss the whole idea of them!
