Macy’s Christmas Windows Traditions
Macy’s started the Christmas window tradition in 1874, and started animating them in 1899.
As many as 10,000 people per hour visit the Herald Square windows.
It takes a team of 200 of Santa’s helpers an entire year to design the windows and three weeks to install them.
