There's a chill in the air, lights are twinkling up and down the avenues and there may even be a dusting of snow in Central Park...it's Christmastime in NYC, and it's nothing short of magical. There are so many ways for families to celebrate the season—check out our lists of Christmas events and Christmas shows for kids if you need inspiration—but one of our favorites has to be wandering past the whimsical holiday window displays at NYC's most famous department stores. This year, the decorations are as enchanting as ever, featuring scenes from fairytales, intricate designs from Baz Luhrmann and more, often set againt a backdrop of iconic city landmarks.
