Each year, the city's beloved department store lights up midtown with whimsical scenes - a festive celebration of creativity, fashion, the season and the city. No doubt you've seen this year's spectacular feast for the eyes, This Is How We Celebrate. But can you remember the fabulous windows of years past?
