Okay, yes, I miss California. There it's sunny. Pretty. Clear (albeit purple) skies and people walking around in shorts and t-shirts. But there's one thing we do better here than there: Christmas decorations.
First of all, we have more window space for it. And more people to walk by and admire. Rockefeller Center and 5th avenue just before the holidays cannot be beat. Also, Santa's snow covered house looks retarded standing smack dab in the middle of The Grove in Hollywood.
Any way! I will endeavor over the next few weeks to share New York's wonderful windows with you. This post features photos I snapped at Bloomingdale's on the Upper East Side. The theme is classic Christmas and is inspired by the new Christmas compilation from my third cousin in law (aka: not really related, but still kinda sorta) Tony Bennett!
The classic Christmas folk are flat creations with simple automatic motions, sleds bouncing back and forth, arms moving up and down, sleighs rocking to and fro. Very simple. And above it all - the dulcet tones of Tony Bennett. Close your eyes and imagine. And enjoy.
