It's the time of year when the windows of Macy's State Street store are masked with black drapes, while intricate displays are constructed in secret. We got the chance to take a look behind the scenes and find out what the retailer has in store for their annual holiday tradition. Included in this year's displays will be a motorized celebration of 150 years of fashion as well as a piece that touches on the theme of belief in holiday miracles. These intricate creations will be unveiled to passersby on Saturday, November 3.
