Our windows into a time of wonder
THE spirit of Christmas has taken on new meaning for Kirsten Clemens and Rhys Stanley as they gear up to celebrate their first festive season with son Jaggar.
The couple already have plans to make a trip to the Myer Christmas windows an annual family tradition, with Clemens getting a sneak preview at Geelong’s display yesterday.
The windows, which form part of the Central Geelong Christmas Trail, will be unveiled at 5pm today, ahead of the Gala Day Parade at 7.30pm.
This year’s theme is the children’s book One Christmas Eve, by Corinne Fenton and Marjorie Crosby-Fairall.
“It looks amazing, there is so much colour and, of course, Christmas lights, which truly get you into the Christmas spirit,” Clemens said.
“They’re going with Melbourne’s most iconic sites as a backdrop in the window, so that’s really sentimental as well.
“I have always gone to look at the Myer Christmas windows in the past with my friends’ kids, so now it’s so nice to have one of my own.
“Jaggar loves looking at colour and lights, so he is going to absolutely love it.
“It will be very, very special for Rhys and I.”
