In addition to all of the special holiday nighttime events in Manhattan are the often spectacular department store windows that draw throngs of people.
In my family some of us enjoy seeing of them together on Christmas night.
This year at Saks Fifth Avenue there is a new light show, Snowflake and The Bubble, with music this year projected on to the building itself above the store windows on Fifth Avenue. I found it to be so delightful and my cousin found a great video of it from the internet.
Imagine the scale of the projection, which is a whole city block, the deep bass resonant sounds of the clear music and that the bubbles have the translucent colors that real soap bubbles have. ( That’s what we saw and heard in person)
Then you’ll have in your imagination all you need to be right there sharing it all with the holiday crowds!
Next time I’ll share my own pictures of the department store windows with you.
