A new tradition at Hudson's Bay for 2016

I went to check if the new Saks Fifth Avenue at Yonge and Queen had affected our beloved tradition of Hudson's Bay Christmas windows. The answer is... yes and no. There are still lovely tableaux with animated characters. But Santa's world has been replaced by an Enchanted Forest filled with animals, with animations in the background. Loved it! (Click on the image above to see a clip of this display.)

Not to be outdone, for its first Christmas, Saks Fifth Avenue came up with an explosion of colours in its windows featuring glam dolls in wonderfully kitsch tutus amidst whimsical garlands. Good job!
