Macy’s Downtown Boston and Santa will unveil its holiday windows on Friday, November 29th at the annual Christmas tree lighting. The three Believe in the Wonder windows located on Washington Street will be centered on the joy of sharing holiday season festivities with those we love. Generations of visitors will find variations of their own holiday traditions mirrored in the windows; each featuring a cast of enchanting characters sharing the spirit of the season from the wintery forest to the shores of New England. The first window depicts a cozy Christmas theme with Santa and his elves baking cookies and enjoying the winter wonderland with nearby animal friends. In the second window, Mrs. Claus and her snow pals celebrate the season with a fun pin ball machine featuring historic Boston landmarks. The final holiday window brings you to the scenic waterfront of the Massachusetts Bay. Sailboats decorated in holiday hues sail towards the lighthouse to officially kick off the holiday season.
