The global pandemic has put a pause on a lot of our traditions — for good reason.
Some events have figured out ways to go on — including the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
And organizers plan to take a page from the Macy’s Fourth of July fireworks show to help plan the parade.
“Everything is going to be different,” NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio said, CNN reported.
So what could we see different this year?
“Some is going to be virtual. There might be some small in-person pieces, spread out pieces, it’s not going to look at all of course like how we are used to. But the important thing is, the traditions will be kept in some way,” de Blasio said.
Macy’s in Herald Square, New York City, recently unveiled its holiday season windows.
Following the theme of “Believe in the Wonder,” the windows offer neon and chrome, and even include a a window with a dog’s nose sticking out that viewers can touch!
“We are Christmas,” said national Macy’s windows director Roya Sullivan said, WCBS Radio reported. “And it’s really how Santa is in all our hearts during the holiday season. So believe in that wonder. Believe in that giving. And that’s what we portrayed in the windows,” she said.
The windows take all year to design and build. In fact, just days after unveiling the windows in NYC, the team began thinking about Macy’s 2020 windows.
There are six windows that are available to view until Jan. 1.
