Chicago wears the holidays well. All around town, decorations are up for all to enjoy. From the enormous tree at Daley Plaza:
To the windows at Cartier and Tiffany’s:
To the planting beds along Michigan Avenue, otherwise known as the Magnificent Mile, where shopping is the main activity. This year’s displays seem more naturalistic than usual, and less glitzy. Perhaps a reflection of the mood in a city that has its share of troubles.
And then there’s the more spiritual, less materialistic vision of the holidays…
I hope you enjoy these glimpses of my beautiful city!
