It’s that time of year once again: New York City’s grandest department stores are revealing their elaborate, jaw-dropping holiday window displays, and this year may be even more glamorous than the last.  Tiffany & Co., Barneys New York, Henri Bendel, and many other retailers have turned their storefront windows into magical holiday storyboards, drawing in thousands of customers who come to marvel at the creativity.

With each holiday season, the themes to the store windows change (some take an entire year to conceptualize) and this year, they range from Bergdorf Goodman’s icy spin on holidays, like April Fool’s Day (yes, it’s suppose to be upside down!), Lord & Taylor’s homage to memorable family traditions (like visiting Santa Claus), and Bloomingdale’s global tour of holiday shopping from New York City to Italy. This year’s holiday windows are a sight you don’t want to miss!
