when it comes to setting the christmas spirit and decorating for the holidays no one out does themselves quite like downtown shopping areas. from christmas lights on trees, to the higher volume of shoppers, billboard gift ideas to giant mall christmas trees; the second you step foot on the street, you know exactly what time of year it is. personally, one of my favorite things to do is check out window displays. here are some photos i recently took on a downtown van shopping trip:
in addition to their a-mazing window displays, holt renfrew also has some great in-store displays for the holidays too!
we also happened to pass a group caroling through the stores!
