Miracle on 38th Street?
Blog Guy, I need some travel advice. I’m going to New York City this week, and I want to make sure I see the city’s famous magical Christmas window displays. I know about Bloomingale’s, Macy’s, Tiffany, but I don’t want to miss anything. What’s the very best holiday window display?
You must see the one at Fifth Avenue and 38th Street, where models are stripping down to their underwear and lounging around in a store window with lots of skin showing, attracting huge holiday crowds.
What a great way to get into the Christmas spirit!
Yeah, I don’t know the exact details so I’m just making up this part, but I think the shop owner was trying to save a few bucks by not building dressing rooms for his models in the store. He just sent them to a storefront window and told them to change there, and suddenly men began coming from all the New York Boroughs and even New Jersey to see the holiday miracle. Who could have guessed that something like that would be of interest?
Wow, that’s a feel-good story for the ages, Blog Guy! What a heartwarming movie it would make!
Indeed. In the cherished words of Tiny Tim, “God bless us, every one!”
