For the past few years, Macy's has done interactive windows. On 34th street side, the windows had buttons, you would step on to make, Santa Fly, put toys in the bag, and have fun. This caught the eyes of young and old....grown ups especially had a good time being a kid again. On the Broadway side, the windows were message and brightly colored with lights.

I wasn't going to do it this year. I thought maybe the stores didn't even decorate......BUT I WAS WRONG. A friend encouraged me to go, so I grabbed my mask and took a short walk. 5th Ave was lit like they had been doing for years, with these little characters dotting the Avenue. This is 5th Ave from 53rd - 57th Streets.
The day I went to see the tree it was raining, but that didn't matter the crowd was thick with taking photos and enjoying the Holiday spirit.

With the lighting of the 50-foot-tall first official tree two years later, the tree became what Rockefeller Center dubbed "a holiday beacon for New Yorkers and visitors alike." A skating rink was opened below the tree in the plaza in 1936.
