WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: CHANGING SEASONS

ICE SKATING AT THE PPG RINK

PPG ICE RINKFall fades into winter.  The hours of daylight grow short, and darkness appears to reign.  For millennia, people have been “raging against the dying of the light” by observing various festivals and religious holidays that center on light overcoming darkness.

Light Up Night kicks off the annual holiday season here in Pittsburgh.  The city dons its finest and celebrates the season until it concludes with a final grand spectacle: First Night Pittsburgh 2013.

Tens of thousands annually flock to the Golden Triangle for tree lighting ceremonies, caroling, the unveiling of the window displays at Macy’s, and the arrival of Santa.  (Information taken from the internet)

Below and the one above are photos of Macy’s window displays and Santa waiting to hear the wishes of little boys and girls in and around the Pittsburgh area.

I hope you enjoy the displays.  Don’t forget to see other changing seasons entries at The Daily Post at WordPress.com.  They are truly amazing.

  1. I love Christmas windows- just not the shopping.

  2. Thank you for sharing the beautiful Christmas window displays!

  3. The Woodwards store in Vancouver used to do wonderful displays every year at Christmas. Unfortunately they went out of business after the family business went to the children and they didn’t make a go of it. These window displays reminded me of that. Very nice.

  4. Thank you sister Francine.. The photo’s are just wonderful.. Blessings.. Bro Pat… 🙂
