Growing up in a house where we decorated for Christmas on October 31 was always fun for me, and don’t get me started on picking out the perfect Noble Fir Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving. This morning while getting ready to head to the polls I was pleasantly surprised to hear Elvis having a “Blue Christmas” and Sinatra crooning Christmas carols on my satellite radio, even though it’s a mild 82 degrees with blue skies and birds chirping as thought it’s spring.
If you love Christmas as much as I do, and the original “Miracle On 34th Street” you won’t want to miss out on Macy’s “Another Miracle On 34th Street” which will feature the movie’s original Kris Kringle back at Herald Square via the power of technology, interacting with Macy’s star designers including Justin Bieber, Tommy Hilfiger, Marcus Samuelsson, Carlos Santana, Martha Stewart, Taylor Swift, and Donald Trump. According to Businesswire “Taking place on his first day back at Macy’s Herald Square, Kringle is greeted by an amused Harold and Martha Stewart. In a hurry to see Mr. Macy, Kringle is seemingly unaware of his modern day surroundings. After his introduction to the incredulous staff, Kringle once again finds himself in familiar territory as the stars seek proof that he is indeed the real Santa Claus, especially the skeptical Donald Trump. Proving his credentials as the real jolly old elf, the tide soon changes as the stars try to secure their place on the nice list with Justin Bieber leading the way.”
“’Miracle on 34th Street’ has been a defining moment in Macy’s storied history since the film first delighted audiences in 1947,” said Martine Reardon, Macy’s chief marketing officer. “For decades, we have cherished and embraced the legacy of this wonderful film which along with our incredible Thanksgiving Day Parade has truly helped define the holiday season. Thanks to our special partnership with Twentieth Century Fox, we are able to bring the magic of Miracle to new audiences, in a unique, funny and heartwarming spot that will have millions more believing in the spirit of the season.”
Look for “Another Miracle On 34th Street” which will begin airing on Thursday, November 8th.
