Myer Christmas Windows

13 Dec

Every year at Christmas time, the Myer department store in downtown Melbourne puts up a big animated window display. This year, the children’s book “Russell’s Christmas Magic”, by Rob Scotton, was chosen for the Myer Christmas Windows.

If you find yourself in the area, you should stop by to check it out. The large storefront windows have all been converted into animated displays, telling the story of Russell the sheep, who comes to Santa’s aid when he crash lands his sleigh. Santa, with his sleigh broken, thinks he will have to cancel Christmas, but Russell saves the day by converting an old car into a magical gift-carrying machine.

Myer also has a short little “making of” video here: http://www.myer.com.au/home_christmas-windows.aspx

The display runs through January 6th, so you still have plenty of time to go see it if you haven’t done so yet.

    Christmas has always reminded me of snow & bitter cold. The people in your pictures are wearing shorts & t-shirts.

    Cuuuuute!!! That makes me want to share photos of the Christmas window displays at David Jones in Sydney…but they’re not nearly as awesome as this.

    Nice window display! Its funny how snow still symbolizes Christmas, even though it’s summer there 🙂

      I know! It is strange to see images of Santa in the snow and then turn around and see another display of Santa driving a ute or something like that.
