NEW YORK (CIRCA) — Macy's is helping to usher in the holiday season with its iconic Christmas window display at its flagship Herald Square store in New York. Visitors of all ages can delight in viewing six enchanted windows that tell the story of astronaut Sunny the Snowpal, who heads to outer space to try and save Christmas.
The windows, designed by Macy's national director of window presentation Roya Sullivan, are titled "Believe in the Wonder of Giving." Themes include friendship, family, adventure and teamwork.
A custom interactive video game lets guests zoom Sunny through snowflakes to find Santa's sleigh.
In addition to the six Broadway windows, Macy's will also showcase scenes from the 1974 TV Christmas classic "Yes, Virginia There Is a Santa Claus" in the 34th Street windows. The 7th Avenue windows will be filled with colorful Lego scenes.
Macy's was the first department store to feature Christmas window displays and has kept up its annual tradition since 1874. More than 10,000 people per hour are expected to pass by the windows.
The windows will run through Jan. 1.
