Color Your World 2018: 120 Days of Crayola – Navy Blue

Navy Blue Holiday Window

Lord & Taylor Window, December 2016, New York City

A 2016 Christmas window in Lord & Taylor’s Manhattan flagship store (for the moment). Lord & Taylor is the oldest department store in the United States, its first store opening in 1824 in New York City. In 1914, it moved into its Fifth Avenue store, which is well known for its Christmas windows. Declines in the department store retail sector and the rise of  internet shopping resulted in the 2017 sale of the Manhattan main store to a shared economy startup called WeWork. Lord & Taylor will lease about a quarter of the space for a store. The rest will be given over to shared working spaces for gig economy workers and bright young entrepreneurs who need lounges with bars, game tables, and fancy water in order to feel comfortable at work.

Holiday Music I Love # 20

Happy Christmas to one and all

What child Is This

Andrea Bocelli and Mary J. Blige. I love this version.

 

I am a bit short in holiday spirit this year. Glum about the United States, the world, the environment . . .  I could go on. So, to help my mood I am going to post some of my favorite Christmas and Holiday songs. They won’t be in any special order, just ones I have played and replayed over the years. Some of them might be religious, even though I’m not. But the spirit of giving, celebrating, sharing, and caring (that is Christmas to me) is in all of us, regardless of our faith or lack thereof.
