Saks Fifth Avenue unveils holiday windows at flagship New York City store

MIDTOWN, Manhattan (WABC) -- It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Saks Fifth Avenue.

The department store unveiled its iconic holiday windows at its flagship store in Midtown, Manhattan on Monday night.

This year, the six windows are inspired by the theme of reconnecting with family and loved ones.

The company asked New York City children, including members of the Madison Square Boys & Girls Club, to draw and describe their holiday dreams with loved ones. Incredible artists and engineers at Saks then brought it all to life in amazing holiday wonder.
