Taking the family to see the Myer Christmas Windows display is a Melbourne tradition. The Myer Christmas Windows (Myer Department Store’s gift to the city of Melbourne), will celebrate its 59th year of production in 2014, with the highly anticipated unveiling of this year’s top-secret theme having taken place in early November.
Each year over one million Australians and overseas visitors view the iconic Myer Christmas Windows to see the specially selected theme – chosen from a story book, nursery rhyme, a film or even the theatre – brought to life in an animation spectacular that ignites the imagination and Christmas spirit in all. 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.
This year, the theme is the fairy tale "Goldilocks and the Three Bears". The story has been made topical for Christmas, with Santa taking the place of Goldilocks and the three bears becoming Polar Bears!

I really love the "three bears" themes and especially the one with them eating their too hot, too cold and just right porridge :) Your post brings back a memory of going to Montreal to see the display in Ogilvy's window. We always went the same day as the Santa Claus Parade. Beautiful post!ReplyDelete
The three bears are enchanting, and the creche is beautiful. Thanks for sharing at http://www.image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2014/12/summer-memories.htmlReplyDelete
