Macy’s Holiday Candy windows are a treat for the holidays

For the 10th year in a row, Macy’s City Creek Center kicked off the holiday season Thursday with a private unveiling of its annual Holiday Candy windows. The windows will be accessible to the public from Friday.

Made by four artists from the Salt Lake City area, the unique Candy Ornament Creations feature hundreds of books of candy arranged around the theme of “Tiptoe,” an adorable reindeer that’s afraid to fly. Holiday Candy Windows are a tradition born at the ZCMI center in the 1970s.

Additionally, Macy’s celebrated its Believe campaign, which, in partnership with Make-A-Wish, is helping bring joy to children with serious illnesses, by inviting 6-year-old Evelyn and her family to take the plunge. eye to windows. Evelyn’s wish to dance as Clara in “The Nutcracker” will be granted by Make-A-Wish Utah in December.

Macy’s and Make-A-Wish are also offering believers of all ages the opportunity to send letters and send wishes. Until December 24, Macy’s will donate $ 1 to Make-A-Wish (up to $ 1 million) for every letter sent to Santa online at or written to a Believe mailbox located in Macy’s stores nationwide.

  • Neil Brown, Creative Director of a Salt Lake-based real estate development company where he is responsible for video production, motion graphics, marketing and web design for commercial and residential properties.
  • Steph Dahle, a graphic designer with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design from Utah Valley University, who began her design journey with an internship in Brooklyn, New York, but returned to Utah and lived and worked here ever since.
