The holiday season is finally here and the streets are filled with twinkling lights, ringing bells and all sorts of doo-dads that fill us with festive delight. Many of the best sights of the season can be found in the glittering windows that line some of the most famous stores in the country.
This year's most impressive window displays range from dreamy to dramatic, each with a carefully curated theme. Check out some of our favorites below!
Saks Fifth Avenue
Located just steps away from Studio 1A, Saks Fifth Avenue is an iconic stop on the way to seeing the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree. This year's theme, "Land of 1000 Delights," combines festive fashion and other indulgent treats in a surreal way.
