Oh my god, stores are already setting up Christmas decorations and the holidays are almost here and we have to buy presents and it's almost 2014 and, wow, does that sound like the future and we are getting so old.


Yes, Macy's State Street has built its holiday window displays. We took a peek behind the curtains to see what nostalgic charms will lure kids to press their noses against the glass. Of course, the tradition dates back to Marshall Field's, who pioneered the practice of animated Christmas displays, long before A Christmas Story and long before Macy's took over the department store in 2006.


What you'll see in 2013: a pug, a vintage television, a chocolate factory, a ton of stars…and are those people drinking mimosas?


The holiday windows will stay up from November through December.
