They'll be revealed to the public at 9am on Saturday, November 8, but if you can't wait that long, here's a preview of the holiday windows—still under construction—at Macy's State Street.


Of course, the tradition dates back to Marshall Field's, which pioneered the practice of animated Christmas displays, long before A Christmas Story and long before Macy's took over the department store in 2006.


This year's windows feature the story of a little girl who sends her wish list to Santa, which takes spectators to Santa's workshop, on Santa's gift-giving sleigh ride and finally to Macy's on State Street.


The holiday windows will be on display November 8–January 11, 2015.
