THE SNOWMAN - FENWICKS WINDOW
I headed for Newcastle this afternoon as I wanted to check out Fenwicks window.
Every year around this time young and old make a point of seeing Fenwick's window. Its a tradition. Fenwicks is a large department store and for the past 45 years in the run up to Christmas they transform their windows into a Window Wonderland . Since 1971 the displays have been animated. Over the years the themes have included - Peter Pan, Gulliver, A Christmas Carol, Rupert, Pinocchio, Alice in Wonderland, Arabian Nights,Sooty, Beatrix Potter and Paddington Bear..
This year as you can see from my collage its The Snowman - to mark the 40th anniversary of the book written by Raymond Briggs. A you walk along the window you can hear music from The Snowman film. I loved it.
I did a bit of ( Christmas ) shopping and got home around 6pm.
