Myer Christmas Windows
Who loves Christmas? Christmas is that magic time of year that we all love to hate and every year is upon us before we realise it. I was in the Brisbane Queen Street Mall this week and noticed the Myer Christmas Windows all alight and alive with beautifully animated characters depicting the classic Christmas story of “The Nutcracker”.
Every year, the Queen Street Mall comes alive with Christmas cheer as families gather wide-eyed to celebrate the annual Myer Christmas Window display. The Christmas Windows are Myer’s gift to the City of Brisbane. Each year tens of thousands of visitors to Queen Street Mall visit the iconic Myer Christmas Windows display. This year, they will celebrate 55 years of production. There is always a specially selected theme – chosen from a story book, nursery rhyme or even the theatre – brought to life in an animation spectacular that ignites the imagination and Christmas spirit in all.
This years tribute to the “The Nutcracker” is not the first time this story has been told in the windows, with the Nutcracker first appearing in the Myer Christmas Windows in 1957 – the second time the windows were ever produced. Each year, the new theme of the Christmas Windows remains a heavily guarded secret while the clever artists, animators and craftspeople are creating their magic for over six months to bring this Christmas tradition to Myer’s many Christmas visitors.
Why don’t you bring out that Christmas spirit and inner child in you and check them out. I was very impressed with them this year.
Yours in Christmas
