Macy's Christmas-themed Windows
Downtown Chicago, Illinois

Greetings, Friends. Today I am sharing photos I took last weekend in downtown Chicago. Every year the Macy's Store (formerly Marshall Fields) decorates its windows with beautiful decorations. I have shared only a few of them, and my photos do not do them justice. One of the themes of the windows this year involved the 9 planets. I have only shown "Mars" and "Earth" above. There were also a few Peanuts character scenes, perhaps because of the recent Peanuts movie. I have inserted my favorite above. These windows have been a Chicago Christmas tradition (and tourist attraction) for decades. Each year they are different. I enjoyed having the opportunity to see them this year!
We had a good week at Poets United--from Sherry sharing the poems of three poets last Monday to Sumana's theme of colors at Midweek Motif to the poem Clovers Rosemary shared for I Wish I'd Written This.
On Monday, return to see the 3 peace poems (by three different PU poets) Sherry is highlighting. On Wednesday Susan's Midweek Motif theme is design.
As I mentioned last week, Poets United will be taking a short holiday break so that both staff and other poets have a bit of time to relax during this time. Poetry Pantry will be held as usual next Sunday, December 20. The break will take place between December 21 and January 2. The usual schedule will resume again on Sunday, January 3, 2016, with Poetry Pantry, when we all hopefully will return recharged and refreshed. Smiles.
With no further delay, share your poem using Mr. Linky below. Stop into the comments and greet your fellow poets. Visit the poems of people who write. Do have a good week!

Love those photos of Christmas windows, Mary. I remember how mesmerized I was by those lovely displays when I was a child ... and, to this day, they still hold a certain magic and fascination for me.ReplyDelete

Wonderful photos Mary :D they brought a huge smile over my face :D hope you all are having a nice weekend, sharing my poem "Secrets of our Souls."
Lots of love,
Good morning once again, Friends! Always nice to see your 'faces' here in the Pantry. Well, here it is mid December and rather than having snow, we are going to have an all-day rain! Unusual, but I am not complaining! Have a good week.ReplyDelete
That first picture evoked all kinds of warmth. My husband is currently directing a local production of "You Are a Good Man Charlie Brown", and seeing Lucy's booth made me grin.ReplyDelete
Happy Sunday! I enjoyed the window displays they are always so wonderful this time of year. Fall will be ending soon and we will once again walk in the season of winter.ReplyDelete
The photos remind me of my childhood. My Mother always took us to see the Christmas windows in town, thanks for the memories!ReplyDelete
Hi all - forgive me if I do not get to read or comment - did not think I would either write or post today - readying myself for a poetry reading tonight... Happy poeming all ... <3 <3ReplyDelete
I hope your reading goes wonderfully, Pearl and am sure it will. It is lovely that you go out and do readings.Delete
I LOVE the photos! How wonderful. Made me remember the big store windows in Vancouver and how beautifully they were decorated every Christmas. Some of those stores are no longer there but I imagine the remaining one is decorated to the hilt. Looking forward to a Pantry feast this morning!ReplyDelete
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone! Love this festive season and all the decorations and joy that goes with it! :)ReplyDelete
Hello everyone! Happy Sunday. Incredibly, 77 degrees here today. I hope everyone has a glorious, happy, and fun Christmas and New Years Day and any other celebrations during this time.ReplyDelete
And how can I forget those wonderful window decorations! Great pictures Mary.ReplyDelete
